Terri LaFawn Penny, 62, passed away Saturday, October 16, 2021, at her home in Moffat. Graveside services will be held at 10:15 am Wednesday, October 27, 2021, at Moffat Cemetery.

Terri was born on May 29, 1959, to Aleck and Vada Penny in Santa Monica, California. She was the youngest of four children, and was proud of her siblings beyond measure. She dedicated her entire life to being a mother, for which her children are forever grateful. One of Terri’s best qualities was the ability to see the best in everyone. She always knew how to build you up and make you feel loved. When you may have only won a participation ribbon, she made you feel you had won the whole race. She enjoyed crafting, adding sparkle and knick-knacks to her home, dancing, and loved nothing more than being with her family.

Terri was preceded in death by her beloved parents and sister; Aleck and Vada Penny and Jackie Penny.

Those left to honor and celebrate her one-of-a-kind spirit are her son, Ronnie Cota Jr. and wife, Jorine; her daughters, Breia Diane Cota Mascarich and husband, Todd, and Sandra LaFawn Cota Paranuk and husband, Nick; spouse and friend of over 20 years, Barney Dubiel; brothers, Ray Penny and Roy Penny; her grandchildren, Colton, Jonathan, Chesney, Julianne, Brayden, Olive, Lane; great granddaughter, Jade; lifelong friend, Ronnie Cota Sr.; and loyal dog, Colt.

A time of visitation will be held from 5-7pm, Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Temple.
