Welcome to the Penney Richards
Memorial Fund website.
Penney Richards died
tragically in a motorcycle accident on November 19th, 2009 at the
age of twenty-five. Penney, or "PJ" as she was known to her many friends and
family members, left a legacy of caring, compassion and love. She is
missed not only by those friends and family members but also by her co-workers and patients where she worked for only a
short time. She is remembered particularly for her constant smile,
her enthusiasm and love of life. She touched the hearts of many
people she knew and who knew of her.
Through the memorial fund, we carry on her legacy
through scholarship awards to deserving students pursuing their
education in the healing arts, particularly the oncology field. Just
prior to her death, Penney had planned to continue her education in
the field of radiation therapy. We could think of no better way to
honor her calling than by helping deserving students achieve their
educational goals and continue to positively impact others just as
Penney would have done.

information about this scholarship here. You will also find photos of Penney and other information
about her short life.
