Barbara G. Penrose, our beloved mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother passed away at her home in St. George, Utah, on May 15, 2018, at the age of 88. She was born June 2, 1929, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She joins her husband, Glen Robert Penrose, who passed away October 2016.
Barbara and Glen are survived by their daughter Patricia (Scott Moore), sons Steve (Eileen), Gary (Julene) and Jeff (Kristin), and grandchildren Sandy, David, Elise, Jared, Jeremy, Brian, Brad, Tony, Talon, Sheila, Miles, Hunter (currently serving an LDS mission in Modesto, California), Marissa, Wyatt, Katie, Walker and Sally and numerous great-grandchildren.
Mom was self-sufficient, organized, prideful with dignity and dedicated to her family up until her unexpected passing.
She was so proud of her children and entire family, a dedicated mother and grandmother until the end.
Her husband Glen of 70 years and her family were her whole life. She did exceptionally well upon Glen’s passing, keeping herself busy and independent. She loved her cabin in Pine Valley where she independently stayed for days at a time and was very appreciative of her lovely neighbors and friends who came and visited and assisted her. She was also grateful for her kind neighbors and friends in Paradise Canyon, St George.
Our sweet, beautiful mother and grandmother will be dearly missed. We so love you!
She will be laid to rest Saturday, May 19, next to her husband, Glen, at a private ceremony at Tonaquint Cemetery, 1777 South Dixie Drive, St. George, Utah.
