July 3, 1936 - December 11, 2020
Betty Jane Penner, age 84 of Columbus, Ohio, went home to be with her Savior on Friday, December 11, 2020. She was born to the late Elvin and Jennie Lewis on July 3, 1936 in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Betty graduated from Boothbay Harbor High School in 1953 and Maine Medical Center Nursing School in 1957 and became a Registered Nurse. Betty loved caring for others and worked for many years as a Labor and Delivery and Public Health nurse before finally retiring at the age of 82. Betty met and married Henry Penner who was the love of her life in Maine in 1957 and was his faithful and loving companion for over 63 years. Betty and Henry raised four children of their own along with being foster parents of a family of four siblings and many other children over the years. Betty and Henry were blessed with 3 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Betty loved spending time with her ever-growing family, delighting in each new addition. She loved her church family and served and attended faithfully, producing the overhead projections of the songs for each Sunday service. She used her passion for knitting to loving bless many families with a handmade baby blanket for their new babies and more recently to make miniature blankets for doll beds that were distributed to needy children. She touched many people with her care, wisdom and kindness and reflected the love of her Savior to those around her. Betty was preceded in death by her daughters Marilyn and Mary Jane, her parents and siblings. She is survived by her husband Henry; her children, Michael, his wife Christine, and Mindy; her grandchildren, Anna, Caleb, and Margaret; and her great-grandchildren Joseph, Amelia, Ezekiel, Charlotte, Naomi, and Noah. The family will be holding a memorial service for the immediate family. They wish to thank all of those who have reached out and cared for them during this time. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations may be sent to Fellowship Bible Chapel, 2949 County Rd 605, Sunbury, OH 43074 where they will be used for special missions projects.
