North Andover — Mrs. Georgette M. (Moore) Pennace, a resident of North Andover for more than 22 years and beloved wife of the late Joseph A. Pennace, Sr., died Monday, July 1, 2013. She was 87 years old.
Born in Lawrence on March 1, 1926, Georgette was the beloved daughter of the late John B. Moore and Laura M. (Fournier) Moore. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Mrs. Pennace worked as a Dental Assistant for many years. In her younger years, she was a member of her brother's band and played the Bass Fiddle. Georgette loved to cook and was, for several years, the cook at a children's day care center. Above all, Georgette was loved by everybody who knew her. She was always the life of the party, had an extraordinary sense of humor and never missed an opportunity to tell her jokes. She was a kind-hearted, generous woman, who always shared her wonderful food with those around her. No one ever left her home hungry.
She will be sadly missed by her loving children, John R. Pennace and his wife, Margaret, of Paxton; Georgette Royer and her significant other, Dr. James Murphy, both of Oakham; and Joseph A. Pennace and his wife, Susan, of Andover.
