    I'll remember our Aunt Penny Jo, when my Brother Aaron Lee Pridemore brought me up there to visit Indiana in the Summer of 2001 for a 1 week visit with her and her husband Alan Pridemore, and our other Indiana Family relatives. And again in 2005, when Clancy and Nancy Jane Lowe brought me up there to visit with Mike and Peggy Lynn Howard in Indianapolis,right before we saw her and Alan and the rest of out relatives on Memorial Day Weekend, 3 weeks before Donna Joyce Folsom and our Mother took me and her twins to Arizona on our own route, which goes under after Indiana practices. And we are sad to mourn her passing, as Penny Jo Pridemore will be going to a better place, and we will greatly miss her.

    Penny was a classmate from the class of 73. She was quiet and always had the sweetest smile. I remember her from band where she was a pom pom girl. So sorry for your loss. Prayers for the family.
