She spent 25 years advocating for donors...
Penny spent 25 years advocating for donors, and exhibiting compassion and commitment to the families of people who gave the gifts of life, sight and mobility. She would travel far and wide, any day of the week, to attend funerals and memorial services of donors. Penny provided comfort and gratitude to thousands of family members over the years. Soft-spoken, sincere and direct, Penny offered a shoulder to cry on.
It is very fitting that at the end of her life, Penny was able to be a donor. Through her gift of cornea donation, two people were given the gift of sight.
