Edna, or Penny as she was known to all, was born on May 20, 1949, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, to the late Homer and Myrle Cooper. Her natural ability to care for others, her attention to detail, and her steadfast endurance were the traits that led her to pursue her nursing degree. In 1976, she graduated with a Registered Nurse degree from Carteret Community College and later received her Bachelor of Science Degree from East Carolina University. Devoting herself to the care of others, Penny worked for Dr. Richard Borden, Carteret Health Care, Carteret County Health Department, and finished her career at Wake County Health Department.

Penny's love for the Lord was the grounding source in her life. Being a faithful member of First Presbyterian Church in Morehead City, Penny brought joy to everyone she met, and was a perfect example of Christ's love for others.

Penny is survived by her husband, Lawson Patrick Faulkner Sr.; sons, Patrick Faulkner of Morehead City and John Faulkner (Noelle) of New Bern; sister, Kay C. Nattin (Rodney) of Plain Dealing, LA and Connie C. Cooke (Jerry) of Warsaw, NC; grandchildren, Aria Faulkner, Holland Faulkner, Eli Faulkner, Felix Faulkner, Cassie Faulkner, Cody Faulkner, Johnny Faulkner, Dallas Faulkner, and Paisley Faulkner; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Richard Benjamin Faulkner and sister, Sylvia C. Anderson.
