Penny Lynn Schultz, my loving mother, age 69, passed away on February 16, 2023 after a lingering illness. Penny was born on October 7, 1953 in Salt Lake City to Dean Callan Jensen and Beth Roundy. She married Bill Schultz on his birthday, August 29, 1975, at her parent’s home in Salt Lake City.
She loved her family; she loved nature and she loved community. For her, FAMILY COMES FIRST and she carried on that tradition in her little family. Penny loved being anywhere her family was. You could often find her bowling with them or cooking for them. Don’t even get me started on her famous lasagna.
My parents had a once in a lifetime love and you could see it. They were best friends and loved each other deeply and with all of their hearts. They were always reminding me you could conquer anything put in front of you if you were all in all because all you needed was each other.
Penny loved seeing the world and all the beautiful places it had to offer. She was lucky enough to live in such places as Germany. She loved the simpler things, too, like going on drives with Bill on country and mountain roads watching the seasons change, especially the autumn leaves and the peaceful falling snow.
She loved helping in the community. If there was anyone who ever needed help, she would go out of her way to make sure they were taken care of. She loved organizing get-togethers for family, friends and colleagues as often as she could.
Survived by her beloved son Allen, who she loved dearly, her sister Betty Jean Van Beuge, her brothers David Jensen (Josie), Boyde Jensen (Charlene) and Leslie Jensen (Robin). Preceded in death by her beloved Bill, her parents, her brother Gerald “Bud” Jensen, brother-in-law Jack Bauer, sister Maxine Bauer, several nephews and her sister-in-law Joy.
