Cindy and family
My deepest sympathy for the loss of your Sister, Daughter, Aunt and friend. May she Rest In Peace. Hugs xx
1962 - 2020
It is with deep sadness that we announce that on Sunday, November 8, 2020, Penny Naoma Long, beloved sister, aunt, and friend, passed away at the age of 58.
Penny was born on August 18, 1962 in St. Hubert, Quebec, to Naoma and Clyde Long. She attended Concordia University in Montreal before moving to Ottawa to continue her studies at the University of Ottawa. The city became her adopted home. Known for her kindness and devotion to God, Penny spent her life giving. She fostered children and was very active in her church community and various charity organizations.
Penny practiced martial arts, and in recent years had taken up weaving and ballroom dancing, both of which brought her immense joy. She loved The Beatles, Star Trek, and giraffes. Affectionately known as ‘the dinner fairy,’ one of Penny’s greatest pleasures was spoiling her friends and family with a good meal or a special desert. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a beautiful spirit.
Penny is survived by her mother Naoma (Dan); her siblings, Perry, Cindy (Don), and June; her nephews, Gerry, Wayne (Shyla), and Daniel; her grand-niece Mabli and mother, Brigitte; as well as several cousins and many friends.
A private service will be held on November 21, 2020. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s Church, 152 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K2P 1N9.
