Rebecca Lynn Pennington

July 20, 1964 ~ April 17, 2019 (age 54)

Rebecca Lynn "Becky" Pennington, 54, of Pursglove, passed away Wednesday morning, April 17, 2019 at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital following an extended illness.

She was born July 20, 1964 in Morgantown, a daughter of Grove Pennington who survives her in Independence, WV, and the late Brenda Davies Pennington.

Survivors include her husband, Kenneth Buzzo of Morgantown; three children, Carmen Pennington and her companion Matthew Arcure of Morgantown, Melissa "Missy" Pennington with whom she shared her home, and Justin Buzzo and his wife Courtney of Hazelton; five grandchildren, Donovan Dalton, Lucca Arcure, Jaymason Pennington-Corney, Cameron Pennington, Makenna Pennington and a grandchild who has yet to be born; four siblings, Tim Davies of Missouri, Glen Pennington of Ohio, Mark Pennington and his wife Michelle of Fayetteville, NC and Jody Faul and her husband Mark of Cincinnati, OH; several nieces and nephews, and her best friend, Brenda Hardesty of Morgantown.

Becky was a hardworking woman, and a motivator in the lives of others. She wasn't afraid to tell you "how it was."

Through her service as Program Coordinator at REM, she helped to make difference and provide normalcy in the lives of others whose circumstances that they were born with otherwise would not have let them lead a normal life. Currently she was an Environmental Service Secretary at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, and continued working until just a few weeks before her passing.

Becky enjoyed gardening, watching soap operas, shopping, reading, and a good Disney movie on a rainy day. She loved spending time at Big Bear Lake with her family. Most of all, she loved her children, and adored her grandchildren.

Friends may join Becky's family to honor her life and legacy at Smith Funeral & Cremation Care, 108 Holland Ave., Westover / Morgantown, on Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 6 PM until the time of the Memorial Service at 7:30 PM officiated by Pastor Dolly Smith.

A dinner to celebrate her life and for sharing memories will be held Friday, May 3rd beginning at 6 :00 PM at the Clinton District Fire Department.
