Predeased by William Belanger (first husband), Mickey Halabisky (Husband) and brother Dick Gauthier. Penny’s selflessness exuded in her everyday life, she was known for her bright smile, contagious laugh, her witty sense of humor and the ability to make everyone feel at home. Penny had an over whelming love for everyone she met and they could feel it in her voice. One of her favorite past times was enjoying a cold beverage while listening to music and singing or playing an instrument along with the tune. Penny was the most down to earth, sincere person and was there for anyone when she was needed. Penny enjoyed the simple things in life and that gave her great joy, she always spread her wealth of positivity, she will surely be missed by all who have met her.
