Duby, Penny A.

Bay City, Michigan


Our loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend passed away in the early hours of the morning on December 24, 2018 at the Mclaren Bay Region Hospital in Bay City, Michigan. Age 63 years. Penny was born on October 28, 1955 in Lumberton, North Carolina to the late Fred Jr. and Mary C. (Baxley) Duby. Reading was a great joy in Penny’s life. Her favorite animals were sharks and dolphins. In the summertime she enjoyed observing the Tall Ships Celebration in the Bay and Saginaw River. Penny always had an extremely deep love for lighthouses. Her dream and goal was to become a caretaker for a lighthouse. Penny will be dearly missed by her family and friends.


Left to cherish her memories is her daughter, Mary (Nick) Gilham; two grandchildren, Sophie Gilham and Logan Gilham; two brothers and one sister, Danny Duby, Rick (Stella) Duby, Terri (Gary) Quick; special nieces, Amanda Russell and Brandy Martindale; many nieces, nephews, and cousins; and special friends, Ann Hill, Jessica Graves, and Barbara Gentle. Penny is preceded in death by her daughter, Melanie Duby; parents, Fred Jr. and Mary C. (Baxley) Duby; and brother, Wayne Duby.


At the request of Penny, cremation has taken place and there will be a private family gathering in the near future. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorials to the “Wishes of the Family”.
