Margaret J. (Landis) Romahn, 89, passed away on January 9, 2018, at Manatawny Manor in Pottstown, following a decline from Alzheimer’s disease.
The daughter of the late George and Florence (Ely) Landis, Margaret “Peggy” enjoyed her younger years growing up on her family’s farm in Limerick, where she developed a life-long love of animals, birds, and flowers. Married to Bill Pennypacker from 1949 to 1974, she had two children. Following a divorce, she married Henry C. Romahn and enjoyed a happy and loving life with him until his passing in 2004. In her older years, she cherished times with her family, loved playing cards, and had an artistic talent that allowed her to enjoy painting. She will be remembered for her love of life, her laughter and smile, and her colorful character that could bring smiles from all who knew her.
Margaret is survived by her daughter, Jane (Pennypacker) Ford and son-in-law Ernie Ford, of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida; and her son, Bill Pennypacker Jr. of Collegeville. She also leaves her sister and brother-in-law, Nancy and Norman Hunsberger of East Greenville, and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at Highland Memorial Park, in spring 2018.
