Penny Ann Guilliatt was born August 25, 1952, to Robert and Marilyn Dahl in the St. Paul area. She attended and graduated from high school there and attended one year of college before marrying Larry Guilliatt as he exited the military. The couple lived in the central Minnesota area until moving to the Sioux Falls area. During this time Penny stayed home with their three children. Eventually, Penny started working at John Morrell in 1986. She worked there for sixteen years. She also worked at the Argus Leader delivering papers with her children. In 2001, after the passing of Larry, she went to work fulltime for the Argus. Penny worked there as a dock supervisor until her passing.

Penny was a fun loving gal who loved spending time with her grandchildren more than anything. She also loved to read romance novels when she had a spare minute. Her dog Eddy, also occupied her spare time as her constant companion. Penny’s favorite event of every week was her outing with her children for dinner. Every Friday she took one of them out for dinner to a favorite restaurant. Any conversation was about her kids and grandchildren and what they had done. She also cared for her Argus family. She always wanted to know how their families were doing.

Penny will be greatly missed by her three children, Krey (John) Ohling, Omaha, NE, Autumn (Rocky) Sannizzaro, Sioux Falls, and Brian Guilliatt, of Detroit, MI; eight grandchildren, Austin, Lara, Brooklyn, Kayla, Steven, Damian, Dylan, Alexis; and one sister, Pamala Tjosvold, Pueblo, CO; and many nieces and nephews.

Penny was preceded in death by her husband, Larry, her parents, Robert and Marilyn Dahl; one brother, Greg Dahl; and one niece, Dawn.

A memorial has been established in Penny’s memory.
