Penny Weeks

Woonsocket

Penny C. Weeks, 94, of Woonsocket, passed away Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018, at the Prairie View Healthcare Community in Woonsocket.

At her request, there will be no service arrangements, just a simple memorial at Prairie View at a later date.

Penny (Billie Christensen) Weeks was born Sept. 27, 1923, in Rocky Ford, Colo., to immigrant Danish parents, John and Bessie (Thrane) Christensen. She joined three brothers and one sister in the family home: Earl, Harlan, Web and Ruth.

The family lived in several places and finally settled in Wessington Springs. Billie left home around the age of 17 and traveled, living in different states and abroad in Israel. She liked the Hawaiian Islands.

Billie changed her name in 1969 and was known as Penny Weeks. She married several times and had three children: Joe, Bonnie and John, who were adopted by other families.

In 2004, her daughter Bonnie was reunited with the Christensen families, and she found her mother living in Alaska.

Penny is survived by three granddaughters, Kathy Kegley, Karen Williamson and Kim Woodbeery; six great-grandchildren, six great great-grandchildren, a very special friend and family, Kimi Harvey, and Dale and Abby Harvey, all of Ree Heights; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers and sister; sons, Joe and John; daughter, Bonnie Breitbach of Circle, Mont.; sister-in-law, Neva Christensen of Aberdeen; and one grandson.
