Charlotte Ann (Darnell) Pennington

August 10, 1939 ~ May 3, 2020 (age 80)



Charlotte Ann Darnell Pennington, age 80, of Oak Dale Drive, Clearfield, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 3, 2020, at her home with her husband Mike by her side.


Born August 10, 1939, she was a daughter of the late Kenis and June Taylor Darnell.  Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Sue Whitaker, and two daughters, Vikki and Valerie Elswick.    


On December 27, 1976, she was united in marriage to the Rev. Michael E. Pennington, her beloved husband of nearly 45 years.  She is also survived by their precious daughter, Andrea Hope Pennington, and mother-in-law, Margaret Davidson, all of Clearfield.   


Other survivors include a sister, Virgie Carter of W. Terre Haute, Indiana; a special niece, Allison Ward of Lexington; her best friend, Faye Lenning of Ashland; other relatives; dear friends; and church family.


Charlotte earned a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in early childhood education from Morehead State University and owned and operated Charlotte’s Daycare and Preschool for several years.  She was a valued partner in her husband’s ministry in churches including Pleasant Valley First Church of God in Nicholas County, Fountain Park First Church of God in Richmond, Polksville First Church of God, Midland First Church of God, and Youngs Valley Community First Church of God, all in Bath County. Charlotte was the epitome of a virtuous woman.  She loved everyone equally; a person’s education or socio-economic standing was unimportant to her.    She was a Christian, a prayer warrior, and a dedicated and loving wife, mother, and friend.  Charlotte’s legacy will endure in those whose lives she touched here on earth.  She will always be lovingly remembered. 


Due to the COVID-19 regulations set forth by the Governor, a private service will be held Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals with Carolyn DeHoff and the Rev. Johnny Hatfield officiating.  Burial will follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens with the Rev. Ben Furman officiating.
