Feb 23, 1959 – Jan 19, 2009
Penny passed away on January 19, 2009 in Abbotsford. She is survived by her common-law partner Rick Degamage, her son Matthew Metcalf, brothers Shawn and Kelly Jodway, and her sister Christie. We all miss her and wish her the best on her journey to the other side. Penny always liked to say “we are here for a good time not a long time” sadly she was right about not being here long. She was loved by my many while she was here and touched them all in a deep and special way. Penny’s gift was also our gift as when we were with her it was very easy to see and the feel the grace of God in her. All of us who knew Penny are very fortunate as she has enriched our lives and helped us to feel and to develop our own compassion, humanity and empathy. A memorial service for Penny will be held at St Matthews Anglican on Friday, January 30th, 2009 at 2pm.
