Alice Leona Penniston passed away on September 9, 2011.


She was born April 16, 1931, in Sommers, MT, on Flat Head Lake, a wide spot on the road (and it still is). Born to Eber J. and Leona Mae Minthorn with siblings, Raymond, Myrna, John, Ivan, Mel and George.


She will be greatly missed by her husband, George M. Penniston; three children; seven grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren and many friends, whom were a great part of her life.


Alice was a loving mother, saleswoman, a graduate nurse and a cosmetology instructor, who ran her own salon. The Lord must have needed her now. She is always in our thoughts.


A memorial service will be Saturday, October 1, 2011, at 2 p.m. at the South Crysler Restoration Branch in Independence, MO.


Arrangements: Heartland Cremation & Burial Society, 816-313-1677.
