Penny “GG” (Schroeder) Carter passed away on Jan. 11, 2021, surrounded by her somewhat dysfunctional family.

Penny was born on Nov. 9, 1946, in Michigan City, Indiana. She was the fourth of nine children. In 1966, while working as a secretary at the Indiana State Prison, she met her future husband. Don’t worry, he was a guard, not a prisoner. After only three dates they eloped and were married on Dec. 31.
