On April 1, 2019, with her family at her side Penny Dewitt (nee Bruchkowski) passed away at the age of 53.

She leaves to mourn her, sons, Robert McCormick and Shane McCormick; and grandchildren, Brooklyn, Braden and Edward McCormick; as well as her mother, Florence Bruchkowski; siblings, Tom Bruchkowski, Ron Marquart, Cindy (Ernie) Sinclair, and Tammy Bruchkowski (Allan Sinclair); nieces and nephews, Brian Sinclair, Samantha Sinclair and family, Robyn (Billy) McMillan and family, Steven (Caylie) Marquart and family, and Amanda (Tyler) Nahnybida and family.

She was predeceased by grandson, Caleb Nicholas McCormick; father, Edwin Bruchkowski; grandparents, Marguerite and Steve Bruchkowski, Bertha and Joseph Caron, uncles Leo Caron, Jim Cotte, Jim Danka, and David Bruchkowski; aunt Rita Dierickse; and cousins Jeffrey Cotte and Maureen Cross.

Penny loved her family, especially her grandchildren, and had a kind soul and loved crafts and animals.

Penny was very independent, she always insisted she could do things for herself. Even though she refused help from others, she was the first to offer help to others in need.

Penny worked for the Salvation Army, Pinecrest Home for the Aged and at Canadian Tire in Kenora and in Fort Frances.

Penny had a different perspective on the world, which made her a great person to brainstorm with. Even if you didn't find the result you were looking for, her sense of humor made it time well spent.

She will be greatly missed.

Service will be held in Emo, Ont. at later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations to charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by family.
