In memory of
Nancy L. Penning
Penning, Nancy L. Grand Rapids, MI Nancy L Penning, 69, was called to be with her Lord and Savior on July 27, 2020. She was born March 20, 1951, in Fairbanks, Alaska, to John and Betty Penning. She enjoyed an abundant Christian life and traveled the world through her father's career with Pan American World Airways. As a teenager, Nancy witnessed to children using a flannel board depicting Bible stories and songs. She was a courageous girl riding her Honda motor scooter around Harbel, Liberia, with her pet chimpanzee dressed in infant clothes perched in front of her. Nancy continued caring for teenagers through her career at Wedgwood Christian Services. Nancy loved family gatherings, singing in the church choir, and camping with friends. She loved to laugh until the tears rolled. Her generous spirit touched the lives of many people-family, friends, and strangers. She leaves behind her sister and best friend Sharon Penning, brother Robert Penning, sister Susan (Penning) Alexander, sister and caregiver Dawn (Phil) Anderson, plus nieces and nephews: Dia (Jess) Tschirki-Penning and Gus, Rose (David) Weaver and Justin, Christina Alexander and Shane and Grace, Tori (Kyle) Kisling, Kitty (Josh) Elliott and Peggy, Annie Anderson, and Henry Anderson. Due to current health concerns, no services are being held. The family asks that you sign the online guestbook and include a fond memory of our sister and aunt at http://www.stroofuneralhome.com/
