Penny took great pride in the work she did and was committed to her staff and dedicated to the kids at the center.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Penny’s family. I enjoyed working with her at New Beginnings.

  2. David Fowler says:

    I knew Penny for years being best friends with Rusty growing up, I hadn’t seen her for awhile but the last time I did she was speaking at an AA meeting. She was full of wisdom and had overcome as all True Christians do. My condolences go out to the Flack’s as I know they will miss Penny she was the glue. She always told it just like it was and didn’t let her small size stop her. She maybe separated from her imperfect body, her journey on this life over, but she lives on with our Lord Jesus, and someday she can tell me the rest her testimony I missed. Sad I didn’t hear of her passing til after the memorial. I would have loved to go.

  3. Sherry Mayer says:

    Penny and i have been friends for nearly 40 years. We werent just friends
    We were sisters in Christ
    That was the cord that bound this friendship for all those years. She was my mentor as a young Christain. She loved studying the Bible and teaching me about Jesus’s great love for us. she had her favorites
    Kenneth Copeland and Joyce Meyers and others. She always gave me wonderful advise through the rough patches on this journey of life.
    Penny was my best friend. She knew everything about me. Even if we got busy with jobs and family it was easy to catch up. We went through many of the heartaches and joys of life together. We grew in our faith together.
    Family was everything to her. Her children were her life. She loved her job but family was always in the forefront of her heart.
    I know she is in the presence of the Lord. Where she longed to be since she became a Christian so many years ago.
    She will be missed. But i know she is in a glorious place waiting for her beloved to join her.
    I love you Penny
