Penny Denise Cheshire (Brown), 64, of Boles, Arkansas passed from this life on October 29, 2022 at her home. She was born on March 21, 1958 in Sterling, Illinois to Paul K. Cheshire and Joyce (Planthaber) Curtis.

Penny was an electric individual that breathed life and love into every room she entered. She was quick to share a hug and a smile that stretched ear to ear to brighten any heart. She was full of love and loved everyone and everything she knew, with her whole heart. Penny loved so completely that to know her was to become as family. Whether by blood or simply with ties of her big heart that family was the center of her being. She worked to stay connected to her loved ones both near and far. She was always ready for a phone call, a board game, a card game or anything that provided time together. Additionally, Penny loved to travel. Everyone that knew her well, knew about her gypsy toes that would carry her away to the next stopping place at any given moment. There in those stopping places she would grow her love and family even more.
