So very sorry to hear of the passing of a very special lady, Penny. We enjoyed visiting with Penny on trips back to North Dakota. Loved her singing voice. Remember so well when McGregor became state champs and there was a celebration at the Gohrick farm...and Penny sand WHEN MY BLUEMOON TURNS TO GOLD AGAIN....beautiful.

I was so sorry to read of Penny's passing. I am so happy that I had a chance to visit with her this summer and she told me then about her health problems. I knew Jerol all my life and then knew Penny, too, after they married--good people! Each time I have gotten back to Tioga to visit relatives, it was good to see Penny in church for even a short time. God's peace to the family.
