Obituary of Mary Louise Penner
After a full and happy life, Mary Penner passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the Freeport Health Centre at the age of 92.
Mary was the loving mother of her daughter Debra (Doug) Koegler, son Tim (Pat) Penner; proud Nana of Joanne (Mike) Roberts, Stephanie (Ryan) Schurr, Scott (Meghan) Penner, Chris Penner and Gillian Penner; and devoted Oma of Allison & Isaac Roberts and Olivia & Hannah Penner. She is survived by her sister, Wanda Trautman.
She was predeceased by her daughter Sandra, her husband Herbert, her sister Hilda Horst and brother Peter Hubert.
Mary was a “people person” throughout her life, with active involvement in her community wherever she lived: on King St. in Waterloo, the cottage in Lakeside, Foxboro Green in Baden, or Luther Village on the Park. She loved life and her passionate joy was contagious to everyone she met. Her church, Emmanuel United, was important to her, as was her participation in many choirs and solo performances at weddings and funerals.
