Obituary for Gladys Lee Horine Penick

Gladys Lee Horine Penick, 92, of Bedford, KY passed away on September 17, 2019 at Baptist Health in LaGrange, KY. She was born on December 7, 1926 to the late Alexander Pope and Cleo Aldridge Horine in Bedford, KY.
She was the first born of nine children. Her parents were farmers, and Gladys helped out by doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, and looking after her younger siblings. Gladys met her future husband, Robert, at church, she was attracted to his handsome looks and kind nature. After a four-month engagement, at the age of 14, Gladys married 27-year-old Robert Penick on January 2, 1941 at The Old Hedge Inn. Gladys worked for the Trimble County School District as a custodian for fifty-four years. She push-mowed the grass, cleaned classrooms, hauled all the food to the lunchroom, and stayed overnight many times to fire up the furnace so the school would be warm. Gladys worked hard, but the children made it all worthwhile. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading her bible, spending time with family and friends, quilting, cross-stitching, mending and helping others.
Gladys leaves to mourn her passing, her children, Dorothy Louise Penick of Bedford, KY and Gwendolyn Sue Adcock and her husband Warren, Jr. of Bedford, KY; her brothers, Jim Horine and his wife Carol of Mesa, AZ, and George Horine and his wife Lynn of Bedford, KY; four grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren and a host of family and friends all of whom will miss her dearly.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert Lee Penick; one son David Lee Penick; one daughter, Mary Ruth Williams; her sisters, Loretta Richmond, Alma Snow, and Ethel Aldridge; her brothers, Alexander Horine, Jr., Robert Horine, and Arthur Horine.
