Penelope used to ride her motorcycle, pulling a trailer. She made jewelry and all sorts of beautiful works of art. She came to the powwow at Calmulgie Grist Mill in 1991. That is where I met and totally fell for her Spirit, her wit, and her total honesty. We have laughed, cried, shared, and I love her eternally.

I knew Penelope from Backgammon as well for 20 years we played and chatted, swap stories and laughed and cried. For someone that I’ve never met in person I felt like I’ve known her my whole life. I am part Lakota ironically and she was living on an Indian reservation and she shared with me that she wasn’t even an Indian. I thought that was so kind of the tribe to take her in and give her shelter. Towards the end I was sending her some Things to lessen her pain and keep her happy and smiling. She touched my heart and soul and will always be remembered. God rest her beautiful soul and hoping her transition to heaven was smooth and she is super happy and out of pain now. Her nickname on Fibs was Manxie… When she come on she always said hello to everybody and had a nickname for everybody and my nickname was pipsipuuurrrrrr. It seems she had her nickname because she loved cats. I’m not sure who did this picture of her but when we became friends on Facebook I told her she has beautiful blue eyes and I love the red nail touch. Sleep sweet my angel...❤️

I met Penelope when we were both working at the TC Tribune. She was a reporter and photographer. She had her own opinion on every subject and expressed them. Unfortunately, the owner did not appreciate her writings, which were well researched, and let her go. It was either his way or the highway and those of us that knew Penelope, know that she wasn’t putting up with being muzzled. We eventually met up again during her sickness and I would take meals to her until she could only swallow broth. Almost every day was soup cooking on the stove so she would have a variety. Towards the end, she was in a lot of pain and it is now a relief that she is no longer suffering and she is in Heaven with her family and friends. My sincere condolences. I am going to miss our visits. RIP Penelope.

I met Penelope a few years ago on FIBS where we played backgammon. I was new to the group but she went out of her way to email to me the files necessary for a particular program to play the game. I greatly admired her political activism and her unwavering kindness to all. I am sorry that I never got to meet her personally . Apropos of the name I used in the backgammon group, Penelope told me that as a child she was known by the name of "Wakalipi" which is Lakota for "coffee", as she was charged with serving coffee at community social gatherings. Wakalipi, I miss you.
