Penny K. Harper passed away April 23, 2022, at her beloved Ruidoso, New Mexico vacation home.
Penny Loved working with people as a Dallas fashion model, a tanning salon owner, a disc jockey and as the lead actress on the Granbury Rose paddle wheel boat “Murder Mystery Play.” She and Buddy created “Truly Texas Productions,” a western reenactment group entertaining throughout Texas and New Mexico. She loved her church. Triple Cross Cowboy Church and the Harpers organized several inaugural events on behalf of the church. Penny had an effervescent smile and loved talking to people— “the cowgirl with the west Texas accent.”
She was joined in matrimony to Buddy Harper on December 13, 2003. She is survived by her children, Corey Carter, Casey Carter, and Candice Adams. Her pride and joy were her six grandchildren: Tatum Carter, Quinn Carter, Ethan Adams, Macy Adams, Siddalea Carter and Ayurum Carter. Also, several brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Dixie Evans, Jean Ann Evans and Joy Rose as well as her mother and father Vie Ann and Henry Evans.
