It is with great sadness that our family must announce the passing of Jody Penny, of Florissant, CO. She was taken from us too soon by a brief yet devastating illness on August 22, 2023. She was born in Tennessee on February 26, 1957, however, her home is and always will be the Colorado mountains. While raising her kids in Colorado Springs, Jody yearned to be in the mountains as much as possible. She would often take her family and join friends to spend countless days and nights camping and enjoying the beautiful mountains with them. 24 years ago Jody was able to make her mountain life a permanent reality when she moved to Florissant, CO, where she has touched the hearts and lives of so many over the years.
Jody was proceeded in death by her father, Robert E. Brooks. With broken hearts, Jody is survived by her mother, Elizabeth K. Brooks; her Pardner (partner), Gary Sczepanik; two daughters, Gentry Shoemaker (Evan Chamberlain) and Melanie Lamer and one son, Elijah Penny (Kaley Graham); five grandsons, Kris, Carter (Hailey), Tyler, Jack and Damon; 2 brothers, Bob (Wendy) Brooks and John (Becky) Brooks; she also leaves behind countless other family and friends that will miss her more than words can express.
"Our grandma moves mountains!"- as said many times by Jody's grandsons
