    Although Penny is now at peace, her friends and family will continue to feel the pain of her loss for some time. I know Penny’s closest friends, who were with her to the end, will take comfort in many good memories, some of which they recently shared with me. In particular, Amber and Lynn should also take comfort in knowing they demonstrated true friendship to Penny when it counted most.

    Penny’s Cousin,

    Randy Stuart

  2. To Tanis, Ray and Penny’s grandchildren we offer our sincere condolences to you. Penny will always be remembered by me for her work within the Aboriginal community, for her work with those less fortunate. I respect her seeking and finding her culture and her higher power. May the creator and all who have gone before her welcome her into the great hunting ground on the other side. Respectfully, Leo Hebert and family from Prince George, BC.

    I will miss Penny. She always made me feel very important as an interpreter for Witness Central. Her great kindness and understanding resounds so clearly in her voice. Thank you to all of you family members. Because of you Penny came into the lives of many like me. May the Creator, the Great Spirit, the Lord welcome Penny. Knowing this, may we find great comfort even as she is sadly missed.

    I am very sad to hear of the passing away of Penny. I saw her six months ago in a meeting at the cafeteria in the first floor of the building Penny worked in.

    Penny was in charge of calling me and others (Court Intepreters) to be at court. She was very experienced and had a very personal touch. My prayers for her and her family. Carmen A
