Penny Marie Crawley, 59, of Lynchburg, went home to be with the Lord, on Thursday, September 9, 2021.  She was the daughter of the late Reid Crawley and Lorraine Dorr.

Penny was a banker with First Bank & Trust who loved her customers and always remembered them by name. She was a dedicated lifetime member of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Penny will be remembered as a loving, Godly, generous, and supportive mother and grandmother whose contagious laugh brought a smile to everyone.  She loved being out in nature, especially fishing with her fiancé, Johnny Gowen, and nothing made her happier than being with her girls and her grandchildren. Her daughters said it best, “Our mom was beautiful…inside and out!”

In addition to her mother and fiancé, she is survived by her two daughters, Nikki Hubbard, and Arika Stemmer and her “son” Dwayne Martin; her grandchildren, Khristian Anderson and Logan Sophia Wade; her sister, Cindy Eubanks, and her devoted friend, Rosie Gantt.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Penny’s life will be held on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 6 p.m. in the chapel of Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg with Pastor Jonathan Falwell officiating.  The family will receive friends following the service.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial gift to Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.

Penny was my very best friend pre and early teenage years growing up in Concord. There’s wonderful memories of sleepovers, lake trips, a few beach trips, and church visits with her mom. (I still own the large print Bible they gifted me) She had a pure heart of gold like Rena (her mom) and Reid (her dad). Social media reconnected us in life and her love for her family beamed throughout. My sincere condolences to all her family and friends. ❤️

Penny was a loving mom, a sweet, funny lady, an encourager and the biggest fighter I’ve ever known. She remained so positive over the past few years and handled her illness with grace and hope. She never failed to love on her family. I’m so happy to know that she is well, whole and with Jesus.

Penny will always hold a special place in my heart because she was so kind hearted. When I was 17, I lost my mother and I had only just met Penny. She came to me with her Church Tithes for that month & said “ I know that you need this “ and I did . She was always thinking of others, and I will miss her.
