Penny is predeceased by her husband, Don Sitter; Shauna’s father, Ray Kelly and parents – Elizabeth and Michael Filipenko, Aunt and Uncle Charles and Mary Heck and cousin Linda Scott.
Penny was born on April 24, 1953 in Stettler, AB. Penny grew up under the loving care of both her parents and much beloved ‘Granny.’ She was a spunky little girl who always had a wonderful sense of humour.
School days meant helping in the kitchen to feed boarders who were also like family members, staying with the Filipenko family for many years. Penny could cook, work, and clean better and faster than anyone else.
She was a friendly and helpful co-owner of ‘Penny’s Knit Shop’ on Main Street in Stettler. She was successful in professional cooking for work crews up north. Penny loved the fun days at Buffalo Lake where she went fishing with her dad and joined in on the water skiing, swimming, ‘Kick the Can’ games and evening wiener roasts.
A Celebration of Life will be postponed until Summer 2021 at Buffalo Lake.
In lieu of flowers and in honour of Penny Kelly and her love for cats please consider donating to a local SPCA or Humane Society.
