      Penni Dianne Lehman, age 64, of Lamar, passed away early Friday morning, November 3, 2017, at Good Shepherd Nursing Home in Lockwood.

      Penni was born October 15, 1953, in Lamar, the first of the five children of Roy and Thelma (Johnston) Lehman.  After graduating from Lamar High School in 1971, she went on to earn a bachelor of science degree in education from SMS in Springfield.  Throughout her 32 years of teaching high school sciences, Penni sparked the love of learning, enriched lives and contributed to the success of countless students in Golden City, Republic, and Lamar.  She was devoted to her family and was a dedicated member of First Baptist Church.

      Survivors include her parents, Roy and Thelma Lehman, Lamar; two brothers, Jerald (Connie) Lehman and Allen Lehman all of Lamar; her twin sisters, Kenda (Mark) Garfield, Lamar, and Karma (Mark) Hartong, St. Joseph.  Penni was proud to be the aunt of Kelsey (Brandon) Parker, Brandon (Brittanii) Lehman, Nicole (Micah) Osborne, Whitney Garfield, Parker (Ciara) Garfield, Alison (Mitchell) Hedrick, and Taylor (Austin) Doran.  She delighted in her great-nephews and great-nieces, Karson and Sophia, Trentyn, Talia, & Jaidyn, Eli & Ella, and Macey, and was looking forward to celebrating the birth of great-niece Doran this December.  She will be greatly missed by her large extended family and a host of friends.

      Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, November 5th, at Daniel Funeral Home where the family will receive friends from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. Sunday.  Burial will be in Lake Cemetery.

      Memorial contributions are suggested to First Baptist Church in care of the funeral home.

My heart aches for Penni's family, as I know how much they will miss her as will
ALL who knew her. This earthly world has lost a tremendous being, but this world
is not our home..... Penni is home! We celebrate her beautiful life and example
she was for us. Much LOVE and prayers from Janelle and family.

I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that the Lehman family and friends are
feeling because of losing Penni recently in death. Most of us have had to
endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was
prayer and faith in God's promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and
it tells us: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing."
Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick,"
ever again. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10
will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of
us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John
5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) You are in my prayers.
