Died with dignity and great courage after a nineteen year battle with lymphatic cancer. Pre-deceased by parents Alphonsus and Josephine Penney, brother Gordon, sister Shirley, sister-in-law Betty Penney, brother-in-law Paul McCormick and nephew Gary Penney.
Leaving to mourn children Joanne (Brian Sears), Mark (Sandra), David (Karen Ronald), Carolyn (Glen Noseworthy) and Craig (Lisa) and grandchildren Isobel Dobbin-Sears; Megan, Maria and Michael Dobbin; Gillian and Heather Dobbin; Kelly, Christine and Tim Rose, and Jane, Sally, and Elli-Jo Holloway; Zac and Jake Dobbin; and a brand new great-grandchild Oliver.

Eleanor, or Penney as she was often called, was a remarkable lady, mother, and friend, who we turned to often for her advice and wisdom. She will be greatly missed, and we will remember her as someone who did it her way.
