Remembering L. Penny Mendez-Ruiz: A compassionate soul who found joy in caring for others and animals, her legacy lives on through support for the New Hanover Humane Society. Join us in honoring her memory and continuing her legacy of kindness.

In loving memory of Lorraine Clewis Mendez-Ruiz, affectionately known as Penny, who graced this world with her presence from September 13, 1963, to March 14, 2024. Penny's light shone brightly through her love for cleaning and caring for others, finding solace in the simple joys of being outdoors.

Penny's compassionate spirit lives on through a cause close to her heart - the New Hanover Humane Society. In honor of her memory, we invite you to join us in supporting this charity that reflects Penny's kindness and love for animals.

She is most likely to be sitting with her mother E. Van Clewis now at peace.

Penny's legacy is carried forward by her beloved husband, Carlos Mendez-Ruiz, her sons Jason Clewis and Christopher Stallings, her brothers Tony Clewis, Buddy Clewis, and Joe Hinson, and her sisters Cindy Galise and Teresa Jimenez. Together, they cherish the memories of a remarkable woman who touched their lives with warmth and care.

As we celebrate Penny's life and the impact she had on those around her, let us come together to honor her by supporting the New Hanover Humane Society. Your generous donations will help continue Penny's legacy of compassion and love for animals, making a difference in the lives of those in need.

Join us in honoring Penny's memory and spreading her legacy of kindness. Together, we can make a meaningful impact in her name.
