Penny and Ron had their son Arjuna in 1975 in Victoria BC and soon after moved to Salt Spring Island where she fell in love with the island and the community.  Penny was involved in the Art community from her involvements at Artcraft, and Pegasus as well as following her own passion of weaving, digital art and photography. 

Penny leaves behind her love of 37 years Ron, her son Arjuna (Cathy), grandchildren Billy and Monica, and Sister Elisabeth (Len) along with the friends she has made over the years on Salt Spring Island.
