Mrs. Penny

Mrs. Penny

Gloria "Glory" C. Penny passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012. Gloria was born in Chicago, Ill. on Aug. 28 1934.

She married her high school sweetheart, Richard L. Penny, on Dec. 18, 1952. They were married nearly 58 years when he passed away in August 2010. Now Glory and Rich are together again in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Gloria is survived by her six children; 19 grandchildren; and four great grandchildren; her brother Gerald Kenne who has been traveling the world in his sailboat for the past several years.

Glory, as she was known by her many wonderful friends of Christ at Prescott Community Church, always greeted everyone with a smile on her face and a heart as big as an ocean. She had lifelong passion for sewing, crafts, cooking and gardening.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Prescott Community Church.

A memorial service will be 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012, at Prescott Community Church.

Arizona Ruffner Wakelin Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements. Please log on to www.ruffnerwakelin.com to sign Glory's guestbook and share a memory with the family.
