Patricia Ann (Bowens) Penn was born January 15, 1948 in Roanoke, VA and departed this earthly life Friday, March 24, 2017 at Annie Penn Hospital, Reidsville, NC. She was the daughter of Nannie Bowens and the late Alfred G. Bowens Sr.
Patricia graduated from Lucy Addison High School in Roanoke, VA. She worked and later retired from Martinsville Memorial Hospital, where she was a medical transcriptionist.
In past years, Patricia had a love for designing, creating, and sewing her own clothes. Her free time included shopping at her favorite stores, watching her favorite shows in her favorite chair, as well as, bonding with, loving on, caring for, and spoiling her five grandchildren.
Patricia was affectionately known as "Tricia" to some and "Pat" to others. She was a loving, kindhearted, and soft-spoken woman of God. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Anyone around her knew she had a strong passion for her family as well as helping others. Her pleasant, friendly smile and positive attitude will be missed dearly.
Left to cherish her memories and mourn her loss are: her husband and love of her life for 48 years, Lloyd Penn; two sons, Keith (Shakela) of Winston Salem, NC and Todd (Nikita) of Greensboro, NC; three brothers, Alfred "Joe" Bowens Jr. (late-Doris) and Michael Bowens, Sr. (Ruth) of Roanoke, VA and Ronald Bowens (Marion) of Hampton, VA; five grandchildren Kahlia, Kennedy, Jordan, Kaleb and Kyler; and a host of sisters- and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives, friends, and extra special friends.
