Penny always enjoyed a passionate and active lifestyle. Having a creative soul, she enjoyed expressing herself through the flute, singing, and art.

She is also survived by her daughter Janna Bridges Morgan, her sons Seth David Bridges and John Arval William Bridges, sisters Frances Annoise Kennison and Loyce Diane Kendall Zeringue, and grandchildren Preslyn Jenae Savoie Bridges, Mollie Louise Morgan, and Jacob Lee Morgan.
