It was love at first sight when Penny’s eyes met her beloved husband, Stevie Huneycutt. Their love created 3 children, Jessica, Steven and their “rainbow baby” Maryanne. Their family created memories that will last a lifetime. Her nickname was “angel” and she earned that title. She was the daughter that made her parents, Harvey Gray and Jennie Hood proud. She was a caring and loving sister. Her loving home was her nieces and nephews second home. People that knew her can say “a life well lived”.

  • I am shocked. Penny used to babysit me when I was little. I loved her! When Mother used to threaten she was "going to leave me home with a sitter " I would say... good! I want Penny! She was a kind young lady when I knew her in my youth. We were also active church members growing up at Richlands UMC. Love you Penny! ❤️Prayers for your precious family, may God wrap his healing hands around you all for comfort.

  • Didn't know her that well but close to her family... Sending love to mary-anne through this tough time as well as the rest of the family dealing with this double loss. Praying for you daily ♥

  • Your family in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you and give you strength today and the days to come. Penny was such a loving person. Her smile and gentle spirit touched the lives of many. Memories of her will live in the hearts of those she touched forever. May God bless each of you.

  • Penny Before I was, I Am, stacked before Him likened unto dominoes. The lives of many; There was a beautiful sweet one stacked before Him by the name of Penny. Never in a million years would I have thought, nor would I permit such a day or a night; Before me, she would take this glorious flight. A moment ago we were young, teaching each other what we learned from life; Was it greed that took me away from you, a love, a child or every day's strife. A path, a journey that brought us forth,, that prepared me not for your going forth; Those you shockingly left behind, in you I shall seek to find. Your love in Jessica and Maryanne, and in your loving husband Steve, from all of them a promise from me from them I shall never leave. My sweet, my everlasting sis, I shall always, forever remember this, I taught you how to tie your shoes, something that mostly comes in twos. In exchange you taught me right from left, a sister I never dreamed I'd watch put to rest. I love you forever, Your Brother Ronny
