Penny Newell Stevenson departed us on May 8, 2019. She was born in Pittsburgh and enjoyed her final years in North Carolina with her family in Winston-Salem. Penny never met a stranger and embraced each new friendship with an open heart and open arms. Her keen sense of humor and quick wit made her a favorite among crowds. Penny loved the sunshine and spent countless hours in her garden in the company of her beloved Shelties.
Penny was a 1954 graduate of West View in Pittsburgh, PA, and the founding member of the North Hill Babes.
Penny’s survivors include her three daughters: Kerry (Barry), Lisa (Harold), and Pam; her many grandchildren: John and Noah, Tom (Marina), Lindsay (Travis), Maddie, Tyson, and Blakely, Cam, Matt (Heather), Carson, and Gracie, Andrew (Kaitlin), Nate (Mary Lynn), and Ally, and her brother George.
