Words cannot express adequately my sympathy to you Bonnie and your family. Penny was always ready to stop and chat whenever she saw you. She was quite the woman.
So very sorry to hear of Penny’s passing. She did love family and she was always at any family function that was happening. She also had the greatest sense of humour. She will be missed.
My condolences to Ernest and Bonnie who will miss her the most.

I have such fond memories of Penny for the year we drove back & forth to Regina and her good-natured presence on switchboard at MJUH all those years!! May she rest in peace!
I worked at swboard for several years with Penny, we had many a laugh and some fun times and sometimes we worked very hard. She will be missed at our old girls lunches, sympathy to the family

So sorry to learn of cousin Penny’s passing. I will be certain to watch the webcast. Hugs to my mutual Kaczmarski clan members and especially Bonny and Ernie who I know will miss her presence.
I got to know penny when I was working in the maintenances department, later in the stream plant.
To me penny always displayed to be happy person with a great smile. Thanks to the Bible words in 1Corinthians 15:20-22 their is the hope we could see penny alive again.
I am so very sorry to hear of Pennys passing. I have many fond memories of growing up together on the farm. My most sincere condolences to Ernest and Bonnie and your families.
I will be on line for the service on Thursday.
Our condolences Ernie and Bonnie.
Bonny and Ernest, when I think of Penny I always find myself smiling. She was such a character who always said it like it was. Whenever we got together we spent way more time visiting and horsing around than we did on business. I’ve missed her since retiring and didn’t know that she was ill. I’m sorry for your loss but know that she is now reunited with your Mom and at peace.
So sorry to hear of Penny ‘s passing, my sympathy to your family at this difficult time. I worked with her at the Union Hospital, we had a few laughs for sure.
Ernest and Bonny;
Condolences to you and your family.
I worked at union hospital for many years when penny was also working there. shared many a good laugh and story during our lunch and coffee breaks. she will be missed by all who knew her .
Hi Corliss, thanks for your comments. I, too, will miss our chats once and sometimes twice per day. She’s leaving a hole in our lives!
Thank you all for your kind words and expressions of condolence re Penny’s passing. She sure was a fighter these past few years, trying to optimistically regain her health. My family will certainly miss her as I’m sure all her friends will and as I’ve said many times already, her passing will leave a huge hole in our lives. Thanks again for your support!
So sorry, Bonny & family, to hear about the passing of Penny. I just read the news of it here today. Please take care.
