It was all to soon that our family had to say “good-bye” to a special family member: a beloved mother, fun-loving grandmother, great sister, and respected aunt.
Dorothy passed away quietly into the arms of Jesus, her beloved Saviour, on May 18, at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital, in the Palliative Complex Care Unit. She was predeceased by her husband, Cornelius (“Butch”) Penner in 2005. She is survived by her two daughters; Vickie (Daryl) Spenst and Carrie (Robin) Allemeersch, seven granddaughters, nine great grandchildren, two sisters, three brothers and extended family.
She was born in Carman, Manitoba, to Jacob and Helena Reimer. She attended school in Carman, and then worked in a medical office in Winnipeg. She married “Butch” Penner in 1963. They moved to Abbotsford in 1966. Throughout her life she was active in various church-related ministries.
A small family graveside service was held on Monday, May 25. A memorial gift may be made to The Abbotsford Baptist Church, 33651 Busby Road, Abbotsford, BC V2S 1V2.Obituary
