Penny lived a quiet behind-the-scenes life. She was treasurer for First Lutheran Church of Bowie for over 20 years and during these past 10 years was the head cook for events at the congregation. She will be forever remembered for her cookies, pies, jams, and deviled eggs. She passed on the joys of baking and cooking to those who followed her. More than that, she passed on a quiet faith in Jesus Christ who was her comfort and strength.
