    Peter Kitchen

    "Penny, you lived such a courageous and inspiring life! Despite the enormous challenges placed in front of you, the discrimination you faced, the heartache you felt ... you lived your life to the fullest and taught so many of us about love, laughter, dignity, faith, patience, perseverance and generosity. You will be missed dearly by your family and friends. I cannot imagine life without you but you will remain in my heart forever. You are now free from the shackles you endured here on earth. May your beautiful smile endure as you soar in heaven above us. Love, Peter "

  • Gone but Not Forgotten

    Roger Jones

    "I can only repeat what will be said over and over... Penny was a wonderful person and an inspiration to all of us. She persevered when others would have failed. Her smile was uplifting. She lived life large. I'll never forget the look on her face when she first saw the Trailrider and was determined to try it (which she did). To the family: go on with your lives knowing that you were a great support to Penny and I'm sure she was the same for you!"

  • Honoured to know her

    Jaime Nolan

    "Penny was an amazing friend to my Auntie Jeanette, She impressed me from the moment I met her with her warm smile, determination and always working hard for her many achievements, Even in death she chose to help others by donating her body to science-just amazing. My thoughts are with your family at this time, may she rest in peace."

  • Sorry for your loss

    "My condolences to Penny's family on the loss of such a bright light. I so enjoyed my years with Penny riding on Access-a-Bus (she was a ton of laughs). Penny was an important part of our community. Her active participation in public life and her work to improve services for PWD will always be remembered."

  • Remembering Penny

    Alison McQueen

    "Penny became one of my friends during our time spent together at Camp Tidnish many years ago. I remember her being very determined and never giving up when faced with challenges. We used to go horseback riding together and enjoyed spending time together. I was so glad to have known her and the family."
