The Hill City Times -- Hill City, August 30, 2000
Penny KLOEFKORN is with the Lord after peacefully ending her nine-year battle with cancer on August 22, 2000, at the Wyoming Medical Center with her immediate family by her side. A celebration of Penny's life, officiated by Pastor John SPEAR at Highland Park Community Church, took place at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, August 25, 2000. Penny asked that, in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to Highland Park Community Church for Make a Wish Foundation and Hospice.

Penny was born into the lives of Gerrell and Joyce (MOWRY) VEATCH on April 3, 1958 in Palco, Kansas. In high school, Penny was active in all sports and graduated in 1976. She went on to play college basketball. She married Steve KEITH and from that union were born two beautiful daughters, Shannon Leigh and Reagen Lyne. After moving to Casper, Wyoming, Penny and Steve divorced.

Penny, while working at Conoco, was involved in volleyball, softball, bowling, and Women of the Word Bible Study, but more than anything, Penny was always involved in the passion of her life, loving people. She married her soul mate, Gary KLOEFKORN, in the spring of 1989.

In Women of the Word, as she grew in the faith and grace of God, she became a magnetic light that touched every person's life she met. Penny found the good in everyone and found the beauty of life and living in the most basic of things. There was never a bad day for Penny, and she devoted her life to the happiness and goodwill of her friends, family, and acquaintances. Penny was a bridge to a better life to all whose lives she touched.

Penny is survived by her beloved husband and truest love, Gary; her beautiful and loving daughters, Shannon and Reagen; her step-family, Sheila, Revae, Gina, Todd, and Jackie; her parents, Gerrel VEATCH and Joyce GIROT; her sisters, Rocky, Tammy, and Brenda; and her brother, Mark. She is also survived by countless family, friends, and loved ones. Penny remains in the hearts of everyone she ever touched. Her spirit lives forever.
