Penny Elizabeth Myers, 58, of Shippensburg, passed away on Thursday afternoon, Dec. 26, 2019, at home.
Born Oct. 3, 1961, in Chambersburg, she was the daughter of the late Merle H. and M. Jean Chamberlin Myers.
She was a graduate of Big Spring High School and the Franklin County Vocational Technical School, from which she received her LPN license.
She was previously employed as a nurse aide at the Church of God Home in Carlisle, and Green Ridge Village in Newville; and as an LPN at Claremont Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Carlisle for more than 20 years.
Although challenged by a debilitating health condition for many years, she loved life and met each day with a sense of humor and a quick wit that made people want to be in her presence and to be part of her life. Her generosity was well-known throughout the community. Her involvement in spearheading fundraising projects for the Newburg-Hopewell Fire Co. brought her great joy. The fire company awarded her both the President’s Award and the Ken Coleman Award in recognition of her hard work and outstanding dedication to service.
Penny is survived by her cousin and honorary sister, Cindy L. Chamberlin, of Shippensburg; two sisters, Linda M. of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Christine A. Laughlin of Shippensburg; two brothers, Ronald L. (wife, Tammy) and Gary L., both of Shippensburg; nephew, RJ Laughlin of Newburg; nieces, Erin E. Warner (husband, Addison) of Fayetteville, Heather R. Ross of Waynesboro, and Tiffany R. Parker (husband, Michael) of Paris, Arkansas; and countless other cousins, neighbors and dear friends.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by an infant twin sister, Patricia Ann.
