Lucy Pennell

(1947 - 2016)

scan0160She greeted everyone the same way: with her welcoming smile. As a mom, Lucy was sure to pass on her values: honesty is the best policy, always do your best, no one is better than you and you are no better than anyone else. Lucy was the caretaker for her entire family from her parents to her children to her siblings. Her jobs ranged from waitress at the Park and Eat to Accounts Receivable Supervisor at Warner Electra Atlantic. After three children she headed back to college and segued into accounting.

A blind date for the young Lucy Cavallaro paid off in big way: 49 years of marriage to Franklyn Sr. and children, Frank Jr., Michelle Murschell (Jason) and Kimberly Baubles (Clark) and 6 grandchildren. She was the sister of Nancy Ann Cavallaro, Fred Cavallaro, Mary Leonardi, John Cavallaro and Tina Leonardi and was pre-deceased by a brother, Tom Cavallaro; and aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Come celebrate 69 pleasant years 9-11 a.m. Wednesday at Daley Life Celebration Studio where the service will be at 11 a.m.
Burial will be at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Swedesboro.

    So very sorry for your loss. Lucy was such a beautiful person. Since I’ve moved to Delaware I didn’t get to see her as much but I always remember Lucy being so sweet, lovable and down to earth. She had a beautiful laugh too! She will be missed.

    I’ll always remember Lucy’s beautiful smile and especially her laugh. She was always laughing. I hadn’t seen Lucy for a long time but was always asking Michelle how she was. Cherish the memories. She is at peace now.

    Very sorry to hear this news… Lucy was so young. My thoughts are with your family at this time and may your memories sustain you this year of 2017… Worked with her in Pureland years back… and she was our funny lady with her laugh and that smile… We adored Lucy. WEA – our company left Pureland and went back to Mt. Laurel area and she did not come with us… we missed her so much. A great lady.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Pennell was a very nice woman to all who knew her. I went to Kingsway High School with her three kids. I graduated with her daughter Kim. I hope she is in a better place now and is finally at peace. God bless
