It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved sister, auntie and friend, Penny (Marie) Exner.
Penny was predeceased by her mother Elsie, father John, and brother Gary Exner. She will be forever missed by her sisters Charlotte, Sabina, Agnes, June, Marina and her brothers Barry, Leo, Charles, Ryan, Jerome, Mark and Bill; as well as many nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends.
Mary, as she is lovingly remembered by family, loved life and enjoyed her various career adventures as a supply tech with the armed forces, then a lab tech with the hospital in Melville, and finally her management position with B.C. forestry in McKenzie, British Columbia.
Mary became ill and was eventually unable to care for herself so spent the last several years at St. Paul Lutheran Home in Melville. The family wishes to acknowledge the excellent care she was given and commend all the caregivers who are employed with the home.
For those who wish, memorial donations can be made to the MS Society.
A memorial service and celebration of Mary’s life will be held Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at Matthews
Funeral Home, Melville. Interment will take place in St. Elizabeth Parish Cemetery, Killaly.
Arrangements are entrusted to Matthews Funeral Home, Melville.
