Penny Sue Forrest Myrick

Date of Death: January 5, 2017

Date of Birth: March 1, 1963


Penny Sue Forrest Myrick, 53, of Auburn, passed away on January 5, 2017 at Central Maine Medical Center following an extended illness. Born in Lewiston, Maine on March 1, 1963 to Nancy Carroll Forrest Hutchinson and the late Richard Forrest. Penny was educated in Auburn Schools, graduating from Edward Little in 1981. After high school she attended CMVTI where she earned her associates degree in architectural and civil engineering. Penny worked for Harriman for over 20 years. On August 7, 1987, Penny married Jim Myrick and they settled into their lives in Auburn. Penny and Jim’s lives changed for the best in 1992 – with a son, Casey Robert Myrick and in 1995 with daughter Brittany Lauren Myrick. Penny’s greatest love was for her family, but especially Casey and Brittany. She would go to the ends of the earth for their happiness, which in turn brought her the greatest joy. Whether it was driving countless hours every weekend to see Casey ski race. Or spending a long exhausting day looking at colleges with Brittany. She did it all for her children, and was so proud of their accomplishments. She instilled in them her passion for life and enduring determination as she encouraged them to attain their greatest goals in life. Although her illness was long and grueling, no matter the day, Penny always had a smile on her face. Her smile was contagious to others, and she could make anyone forget about a bad day. She taught everyone around her exactly what strength, courage and resilience meant as she battled this beast with grace each and every day for over three years. Penny is survived by her husband, Jim, children Casey and Brittany, and grandchild Zayden. Mother Nancy Hutchinson and Step-Father Robert Hutchinson of Auburn; Brother Scott Hutchinson and wife, Megan of Wisconsin, Step-Brother Glenn Hutchinson and wife, Tammie of Wisconsin, Brother-in-law Jerry Myrick and wife, Paula of Minot, Brother-in-law John Myrick and wife, Deb of Gardiner; Father-in-law Bruce Myrick and wife, Rita of Sabattus.
