I am so deeply sorry to hear about Penny. My parents Dorance and Vivian Sheely were very good friends with Pete and Zona and when we were younger we would go over to their house and play. We always had a fun time. Whenever I would run into Penny after we were grown she would always have a beautiful smile on her face and a light in her eyes. She will be missed.

May she rest in eternal peace,
Becky (Sheely) Neuhaus

I met the Rudish family in 1968. They were all great people..Andie and Penny were 2 little skinny girls who road our school bus' Became friends with Penny and Andie years later thru my brother Stacey and his wife Cheryl. Penny was super fun to be around, and the nicest person you could meet, as is the rest of her family. This is so shocking, She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Rest in peace..

Stevie, Larry, Shovel, Wendy,and family,please know we are so sorry. It's so hard to loose someone you love, because it leaves such a hole in your heart. I hope the memories will help fill in some of that hole. Your mom did her every best she could to love, teach, and care for you. We are sorry we won't be back for the visitation, but we will be there in spirit. May God be with you in comfort and strength. Love Aunt Jan and Uncle Gary

Chavelle, Steve, Wendy and family,

I am so sorry to hear the news about your mom. She was a huge asset to Rockwell and will be missed there, I'm sure. All of you are too young to be without parents. You have my deepest sympathies. You are all in my thoughts.

Take care!

We are so sorry to miss the service for Penny. We are happy we got to share Thanksgiving brunch with Penny at the Iowa River Power Co, and see it through her eyes. We never saw her without that welcoming smile and shared laughter just as that picture you chose showed.

Sending love and condolences for all of you.
Jim and Karen Pregon
