Denton, TexasOn Friday, May 15, 2020, Penny Kathleen College, 74, loving mother of one son, passed away at The Vintage Senior Center in Denton, Texas after an eight-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She grew up in Everett and graduated from Everett High School in 1963.
She was married to B. Randall Grubb from December 1963 to February 1974 and had one son, Jeffrey. She was a devoted mother, who worked and sacrificed constantly to provide her son with the best life she could.
She had resided at The Vintage for the past eight years after relocating to Texas in 2012 to be closer to her son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters.
