I was so sorry to hear about Penny's passing. I have done her hair for years while in Mitchell and when she moved to Sioux Falls. We had wonderful conversations and always enjoyed her coming back to Mitchell and for the visits. May she rest in peace.

This news saddens my heart, she was very dear to me. We bowled together for years, went to bowling tournaments & even after we quit bowling we went on our “girls trips”. My sincere condolences 💞
