It is with great sadness that the family of Penny Lofton announces her passing after a 16 month battle with Ovarian Cancer. Penny was born March 31, 1949 in Clermont, Florida to Ray and Martha Coon. She resided in Clermont and Pinellas Park Florida during her childhood, graduated from Dixie Hollins High School in 1967 and then eventually moved to St. Petersburg, Florida where she met and married the love of her life James “Jimmy” Lofton. In 1986 Jimmy and Penny packed up the family and moved to Inglis Florida and then made their way to Dunnellon in 2000 and Dunnellon is where they’ve remained. Penny will be remembered by her loving husband Jimmy, a sister Gaile Hickman, two brothers Ron and Ken Coon, her children, Michelle Daly, Mike Lofton, Steve Lofton, Jimmy D. Lofton, George D. Lofton and Benn D. Lofton. Penny was also a Mema and will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Ashley, Travis, Paige, Macy, Landon, Emily, Lauren, Wyatt, William, Audrianna and Sabin. Penny also had two beautiful great grandchildren, Adam and Kyleigh that will also remember her.
