Iola "Penni" Pauletti Obituary

Iola Pauletti, affectionately known as Penni, passed away on December 14th, in the comfort of her home, with her family by her side.

Penni was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on May 22, 1937, to parents William and Alberta Langley. Though born in Oklahoma, she became a cherished long-time resident of Merced, spanning over 40 years. She was a creative and talented artist; coupled with her career in sales management across various firms, Penni showcased her professional prowess.

Known for artistic spirit, quick wit and humor, she always enjoyed a new joke.  Above all, she truly enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Penni was a loving mother and friend.

She is survived by four devoted children: Renea (Ashton) Delahoussaye, Janine (Kelly) Winchester, Jodi (Brian) Frade, and Corey (Sheila) Woods. Her legacy extends to her adored grandchildren, Renea, Aria, Alexis, Jordy, Branden, Courtnie, Carol Leigh, and Olivia, as well as thirteen great-grandchildren. Siblings: Ron Langley, John Langley, Betty Langley, Alice Leonard, Donna Cameron, and Jim Langley, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Penni is reunited in eternity with her parents, Chester and Alberta Langley, siblings Jack Langley, Wanda Williams, and Leon Langley.
