Obituary

Mildred Penelope (Penny) Hogg

December 18, 1924 – December 22, 2018

Sadly, but with a life lived fully, Penny left us at the age of 94 years, the same age to which her mother and grandmother lived. She was born in Winnipeg to Sam and Frances Romance; survived the Great Depression; worked at a young age to support herself – one of those jobs was a nanny for the coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and she was very proud of having polished the Grey Cup in 1939; and served as a nurse in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WW II.

She and husband John Ferguson Hogg moved to Nelson in 1952 and built a home on Johnstone Road where they raised their three children: David (Cheryl), Geoff (Vera), and Shelagh Vetter (Steve). During this time, Penny worked at Singer [Sewing Machines]; was active in the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 51 (serving on the Executive as Secretary); and was also very involved with the Kootenay Kiltie Pipe Band, the Nelson Highland Games, and Highland Dancing.

Penny lived in Kamloops in the early 1970s before moving to Kelowna where she lived for many years. While in Kelowna, she worked at Henry Electric, joined the Ex-Servicewomen’s Association, and became a member of the Baha’i Community. In 2005, she returned to Nelson where she enjoyed the company of many more friends. She moved into Lakeview Village in 2014 where she remained until her passing.

Penny was an extremely determined person, and she never complained. Although she was in a wheelchair the last several years, she maintained her independence and never stopped walking – albeit from a sitting position. She was generous to a fault and always put others before herself.

In addition to her three children, “GGP”, as she became affectionately known, is survived by ten grandchildren, and seventeen great grandchildren. She was extremely proud of her family and never missed an opportunity to talk about them.

At Penny’s request, there was no funeral but a celebration of her life will take place in early August.

Thanks go out to her many friends and family, Dr. Milde, the staff at Interior Health and Home Support, the staff at Lakeview Village, the Baha’i Community of Nelson and Kelowna, Thompson Funeral Services, and members of the Kootenay Kiltie Pipe Band – past and present.

Interment has taken place in the Veterans’ Section of the Nelson Memorial Park Cemetery.

I was saddened to hear of Penny’s passing, I had a chance to visit with her but wasn’t feeling well that day so I missed a wonderful visit. Every visit, whether as a professional or friend was filled with laughter, stories and tea. Bless you in your memories as you mourn. She really was a delight in my life.
