    Penny lived a life rich in family, friendships and community. Growing up she was just my big sister, needing to shoulder responsibilities in tough times. From this early hardship Penny blossomed into the beautiful and capable young lady that soon stole Mick’s heart. Three wonderful children, a flourishing farm and an active member of the thriving local community. Always ready for a lengthy swim, run or ride to the horizon – and always just a little bit competitive! Struck down early, but smiling, gracious, colourful and thoughtful to the end. An inspiration both in life and in to face the unrelenting pathway to death. You leave behind a wonderful legacy of people’s lives you have enriched. We will miss you dearly Penny, but are so grateful for the life journey we have been able to share with you. Love always, Sam, Jen and family

      Penny, my Australian first cousin, was always amazingly generous with her time and friendship to her English cousins. However far away and however busy, she always found time for meeting up to exchange news and friendship, offered accommodation and gave tremendous support to my Dad (Peter Leighton) both when he was at the farm at Wellstead and then in retirement at Frenchman’s Bay. I’m glad I was able to share some of her worries when she was first experiencing symptoms in 2019 and to hug her in March 2020, when despite just have been fitted with her peg, she was more concerned about my Dad updating his will than her own health. Strong, brave, pioneering, a lover of water (the Albany pool a poor substitute for the sea) I will miss her very much. David and I have shed tears for the unkind curtailment of a life lived full; send our love and condolences to you Mick and the wider family, and are so sorry we cannot be with you at the celebration of her life.

        It was very saddening to hear of Penny’s death from that cruel disease, MND. Penny was an amazing and determined lady and, when she took on her role at the Wellstead Resource Centre, as the auditor, I saw her take it in both hands, willing to learn and take advice, determined to understand the mysteries of the accounting world, and to strive for a 100% accuracy level. She did it! I could never fault her when I did the audits! It was lovely to get to know her through this role, as she was a distant “cousin-in-law”, and the inspiration that she gave out to others was truly very special. Rest peacefully, Penny, knowing that you have lived a great life and have left a beautiful family to carry on your memory. Deepest sympathies to Mick and family.

              Penny’s infectious smile and care for all in her community will be greatly missed. Penny was an active and generous member of Wellstead Primary School for many years. Most recently her position as School Council Chairperson benefited the school with her drive and passion for providing a quality education for all students. We will be forever grateful.
              Rest In Peace Penny.
