Dr. Lee Penner, who sadly passed away in November, became a Benefactor of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation. A Celebration of Life took place Saturday April 29th where friends and family honoured the memory of Dr. Penner. Dr. Penner and his wife Jos raised their family in Salmon Arm and Dr. Penner worked for many years at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital as well as in family practice. He was a well respected and much loved physician and general practitioner who made a difference to health care in our community. His career spanned many aspects of health care including surgery, anaesthetics, emergency and obstetrics, he delivered well over 1,000 babies!. Dr. Penner was a UBC Clinical Professor for medical students mentoring in rural practice, he also served as President of the Medical Staff and Chief of Staff and became a mentor, advisor and respected colleague to many. Dr. Penner also enjoyed activities within the community, he was a Rotarian, and worked with organizations such as Citizens on Patrol, Haney Heritage Village and the Probus Club. His hobby of boating led him to become a Boat Safety Inspector and a Power Boat Squadron member. The Shuswap Hospital Foundation is very grateful for the support of the Penner Family and friends.
