Dorothy G. Pennell
92, worked at Animal Trap Co., General Sutter Inn
Dorothy G. Pennell, 92, formerly of Lititz, passed away at Shannondell at Valley Forge Retirement Community Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014.
Born in Elkhorn, W.Va., she was the daughter of the late George W. and Ruth Dolinger Grove, and wife of the late William H. Pennell, Jr., who passed away in 1999.
She was a member of the Lititz Moravian Congregation and the Women’s Fellowship Circle at the church. She served as a Girl Scout leader and was a member of the Lancaster County Quilters.
During World War II, Dorothy, known as Dottie by many, worked preparing meals at the Animal Trap Co. She also worked as a waitress at the General Sutter Inn, and as a secretary for 15 years at Armstrong Cork Co.
A loving grandmother, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She and her husband, Bill, cared deeply for children, often watching after children beyond their immediate family. Dorothy had a generous spirit and abiding concern for others, which was expressed in her almost constant cooking and baking for anyone who needed a hot meal or a plate of cookies delivered to the door.
Survivors include her son: William H. Pennell, III, (Catherine), Rothsville; daughter: Barbara P. (Robert E.) Beck, Norristown; four grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and a brother: Dr. Robert O. (Jeanne) Wilson, The Villages, Fla.
Funeral services will be held at the Lititz Moravian Church, 8 Church Square, Jan. 18 at 11 a.m. Friends are invited to greet the family for one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in the Lititz Moravian Cemetery.
Donations in Dorothy’s memory may be made to the Girl Scouts of America, Fund Development, P.O. Box 5046, New York, NY 10087-5046.
