It is with great sorrow that we, the family, announce the passing of our beloved mother, Lucy Alexandra Penney of Curran Street, New Waterford, on Feb. 15, 2012, at New Waterford Consolidated Hospital. Lucy, born in Newfoundland, was a daughter of the late Luther and Miriam (Verge) Smith. She was a devout member of Calvin United Church. She enjoyed attending Aging Gracefully. Lucy was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and sister. One of her greatest joys in life was to be surrounded by family, friends and neighbours. Many hours were spent around the kitchen table enjoying great food, hot tea, conversation and hospitality. In her younger years, she enjoyed playing cards and fishing with her husband, Albert. She will be sadly missed by daughters, Betty (Gary) Micholsky, Nellie (Ken) Biggers, both of New Waterford, Dapne (Bill) Stevenson, Dartmouth; son-in-law, Charlie McPhee (Catherine); sister, Daisy Hoddinott, Ontario; grandchildren, Derek, Penny, Kim, Kari, Michelle, Jason, Nathan, Brandon; 16 great-grandchildren and two great-great-granddaughters; many nieces and nephews and close friend, Chris Burke. Lucy was predeceased by her loving husband, Albert, of 55 years, daughter, Judy McPhee, one son in infancy, two brothers, Ross Smith and Utley Smith, one sister, Eloise Martin.
