Penelope “Penny” Posel, 70, of Atlanta died Friday, Aug. 26, 2016, after a courageous two-year battle with glioblastoma.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, to Eve and Percie Gild, of blessed memory, Penny and her late husband, Teddy, moved to Atlanta in 1978 with their three sons. Penny was full of life and loved nothing more than her family and dear friends. She cherished her grandchildren and could often be seen sitting at the sidelines of a baseball game or doing art projects with them. She always had a positive attitude, even in the face of a terminal illness.

She is survived by her three sons, Greg (Laine) Posel of Atlanta, Peter (Melissa Wolfe) of San Diego, and Marc (Heather Rubin) Posel of San Diego; brother and sister-in-law Anthony and Renee Gild of San Diego; and five grandchildren, who were her everything, Zach, Alexa and Carly of Atlanta and Evan and Bella of San Diego. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles “Teddy” Posel, of blessed memory.
