Pennie, was a wonderful Christian lady with a heart of gold. She was always working and loved making flower arrangements. Pennie, married my cousin Pete Walker and as a small child I would stay with them as long as my momma would let me. She enjoyed cooking and wanted everyone to sit at her table and eat. Pennie, will be greatly missed and loved by so many people. Prayers for my cousins Peter, Pumpkin, Big Pete and all the rest of our family. We will see you again my dear cousin Pennie in Heaven.
