Katharine Elizabeth “Penny” Penick was born March 4, 1922 in Lynchburg, Virginia and went to her eternal home April 14, 2020.
Penny moved from Lynchburg, VA, grew up in Philadelphia, then returned to Lynchburg to meet her true love. She then moved to Sanford, Florida in November 1961 where she resided most of her life until she moved to Deltona, Florida. She worked throughout her life in the garment industry at Sandra Fashions and for many years at Gregory Lumber Company in Sanford.
Penny is survived by her children Wayne Penick (Paulette), Steve Penick (Pat), David Penick (Kathy) and Cheryl Brooks (Randy), sister Evelyn Wade and brother Lee Dodson. Multiple dearly loved and cherished grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by loving husband Ernest Price Penick, Jr., mother Katharine Dodson and father William Dodson, sister Mildred Boyd and brother Bill Dodson.
Penny was known to so many by Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Penny, Cassie, Kitty and my dear friend. Penny was a loving wife of 53 years, a devoted mother and grandmother, a beloved sister, a very special aunt and a very special friend to many. Her bright smile and laugh were a joy and she always took the time to care for others around her and have a hug for everyone. She loved flowers and gardening and always said that was where she was closest to God. She loved going places and was always ready to hop in the car and go for a new adventure at a moment’s notice. A new adventure begins as she takes the hand of the man she loved so much, as he greets her at the gates of heaven, to say I have missed you so much let me show you around.
We love you mom you will be so missed, but never forgotten!
