Pauline (Speelman) Penrod, 74, of Riverview, Fla., went to reside with the Lord on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020.
She was born in New Lexington, Ohio to the late Fred and Hazel Speelman. She was an only child. Paula was an amazing, strong and independent single mom that raised her three children to the best of her abilities, consistently worked long, hard hours but always found time to spend with family and friends. She had great pleasure out of having loved ones around, she could make you laugh until you cried, she had a big loving heart and would do anything she could to help out those in need. She was a gentle soul that was filled with love for all that came to know her. She found comfort going to church and serving the Lord.
Pauline leaves behind her son, Larry Penrod and his wife Lori; daughters, Pamela Esterly and her husband David, Sonya Wallace and her husband Mike; she also leaves behind nine grandchildren, Danny and his wife Destiny, Nicole, Michelle, Andrea, David, Tyler, Larry Jr. and his wife Theresa, Kyle and Niya.
