    Margery Jean Penningroth, 95, of Maquoketa, Iowa, passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, at the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House in Bettendorf, Iowa.

    A celebration of Margery's life will be held at 11 A.M., Saturday, November 4, 2017, from the Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa, Iowa. Visitation will be held prior to the service from 10 A.M. to 11 A.M. at the funeral home. Friends and family may gather in "The Bistro" at Carson's immediately following the service. A private burial will be at the Elwood, Iowa Cemetery.

    Margery Jean Scott was born on January 25, 1922 in Baldwin, Iowa, to Fred and Etta (Harding) Scott. She was a graduate of Baldwin High School and Maquoketa Junior College. She married Ergon Lester Penningroth on July 24, 1944 in Baldwin, Iowa. He preceded her in death on July 21, 2011.

    Margery taught school for two years, worked at the Rock Island Arsenal during World War II and was a homemaker. Additionally, she had farmed with her husband on the family farm near Elwood retiring to Maquoketa in 1988.

    Margery had been a member of the Elwood United Methodist Church. She enjoyed being active in church and the ladies group helping to serve their monthly dinners. She also enjoyed playing cards in various card groups, flower and vegetable gardening, needlework, and had kept a daily diary throughout her married life.

    Those left to honor Margery's memory include a son, Dean Albert Penningroth of Punta Gorda, FL; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, 7 brothers Galen, Claire, Blaine, Keith, Charles, Fred, and Bob, 4 sisters Dorothy, Ferne, Gertrude and Betta, and her husband Ergon.

    In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, memorials may be directed to Hospice of Jackson County or the Elwood United Methodist Church.

    The family would like give special thanks to Dan and Colleen Kilburg for their special care of and dedication to the Penningroth family, as well as the faithful caregivers who cared for her in her home.
