Obituary

CUYAHOGA FALLS – In our most loving memory of Brenda L. (Bates) Pennino who went home to be with our Lord on December 26, 2021. Born on May 5, 1961 in Akron, OH to Ken and Dorothy Granlee Bates, Mimi, as her grandchildren called her, was a caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew her. Brenda lived most of her life in Cuyahoga Falls and was a graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School, class of 1979. She was employed with the Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education for 18 years, most recently with Cuyahoga Falls High School as a paraprofessional. Brenda had many special students and took pride in caring for others. Her compassion was also demonstrated during her years of employment with Sunrise Assisted Living, where she helped in taking care of many special people.

She was preceded in death by her beloved son, Brian Patrick Pennino Jr.; and dear sister-in-law, Barb Bates.
