Smith, Penelope “Penny” Ann, age 71, Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on Thursday April 20, 2017. Beloved wife of Donald L.

Aunt Penny was one of a kind. She was a beautiful person inside and out… Selfless, kind, and supportive and so very generous... She had the BEST laugh and smile. I’m going to miss her so much. I extend my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Laurie, Jen, and Daniel.... An old Joppatiwne friend... I knew your mom as kind and always with a sparkle in her eye. Yours was one of the houses we gathered and played in the court out front! Good childhood memories. My sympathies are with you. Warmly Janet Zuramski Leeper

I only knew her through her cooking and her generosity. She cooked huge meals for countless CRHP retreats. You could taste the love she put in everything. I'm sure her family will miss her so much, as will our fellow parishioners at Assumption. Saying prayers of healing and comfort for all...Marilyn Winka

Penny was a wonderful neighbor and a dear friend. We had wonderful times together and, of course, we were always laughing. She shared her children with me and they are the source of many happy memories for me. Laurie, Danny and Jenny we are so sorry for your loss. You are always in our thoughts and prayers but even more so now. We send our love and condolences Judy and Charlie.

Penny truly lived the love of Christ body, mind and soul. She was a "joy-giver" and a living example of how God wants us to live; by serving others joyfully! Our hearts are broken for her beloved family, her cherished friends, and for all those blessed to have had her in our lives. Praying that you feel the healing love of our merciful Savior. "Peace be with you!"
