Pennie Louise Stagnaro, 62, passed away at her home in North Platte on Sunday, March 3, 2019.

Pennie was born in Stockton, Calif. on Oct. 11, 1956. She relocated to NE in 1991.

Pennie wasn’t afraid to work hard, often working two jobs. She was a waitress for many years, a cook, owned a house keeping business, union laborer, welder’s helper and a construction purchasing foreman. She worked until the day of her diagnosis.

She found great joy in being outside with nature, and a member of the Sierra Club. She enjoyed swimming, traveling, antiquing and quilting. She often used her food and baked goods to show her love. She never met a stranger.

We know she is up in Heaven dancing pain free with Jesus to her favorite country western songs.

Her life will forever be cherished by the family she leaves behind, her children, Melissa Mariscal (Mondo) and Aaric Wall (Becca); grandchildren, Mikayla, Micah, Bennit and Alissa, all of Stockton.

A Celebration of Life will be Tuesday, March 19 from noon-4 p.m. at the Moose Lodge of North Platte with a luncheon.
