    Penny LoBianco, East Peoria, formerly of Alexis, died on Sept. 20 at Fondulac Nursing Home in East Peoria. Per her wishes, no services will be held but a celebration of life will be held on Oct. 12, 2013 from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. at the Alexis Fieldhouse in Alexis. In lieu of flowers, the family will be setting up a fund to buy trees to be planted in memory of her in Alexis or you may donate to the Alexis Cemetery Association.
    Penny was born on Sept. 25, 1940 in Canton, to Edward & Blanche Fuller. She married Robert Sullivan, they divorced and she later married Stanley C. LoBianco. Penny worked at Formfit and Smoler’s in Monmouth for several years. After she and Stanley sold the farm, she bought a café in Alexis and named it Penny’s Country Kitchen, but most just called it Penny’s. She was very active in community and school activities, including Boy & Girl Scouts, FFA, War Mothers of WW2, Alexis Community Association, Lion’s Club, Alexis City Board & Alexis Young Men’s Club. She was the founder of Alexis Fun Day. She was honored by many associations for her commitment to community service, such as the DAR (Daughter of the American Revolution) and the SHARE program. She
    was a big supporter of the Alexis Football teams and would often supply food for the boys and the cheer- leaders after Friday night games. She was a big fan of Elvis Presley and was able to go to Graceland. Penny later retired after 28 1/2 years in the café, due to ill health.
    Penny is survived by two brothers, Butch and Jerry, her children, Sheryl Melton Monmouth, Susanne Kinsey Viola, Jacquelyn Brooks East Peoria, and Anthony LoBianco Bloomington. She had six grand- children and five great-grandchildren. She is also sur- vived by her step-children, Patty Lee, Fern Bridges, Carolyn Creek, Bobby Sullivan, Stan Johnston, Joe Johnston, Julie Shull and Tim Johnston. Her parents and a niece, Cathy preceded her in death.
