Panala Kinzie, 71, of Leicester


LEICESTER — Panala Kinzie, age 71, of Leicester, Vt., passed away peacefully on April 29, 2024. She was surrounded in her final days by those who loved her most of all.

Pan was born on Nov. 29, 1952, to Charles and Beatrice Kinzie in London, England. She graduated from Satellite High School in Satellite Beach, Fla., and earned an associate degree from Brevard Community College.

She held many jobs over the course of her life, but was most proud of being a mom to her four children, and to countless English mastiffs and French bulldogs that she bred and raised.

Pan was predeceased by her partner, David Wortham; her son, Joshua Monk; her grandson, Christopher Werner; her siblings Christine Kinzie, Charles Kinzie and Janet Armstrong; and her parents, Charles and Beatrice Kinzie. She is survived by her three remaining children: Stacey Patel of Swarthmore, Pa.; Ashlee Monk of Middlebury, Vt.; and Phillip Troy Monk of Walla Walla, Wash.; as well as her seven remaining grandchildren: Zoe Monk, Kyler Monk, Shane Monk, Junior Monk, Elliot Monk, Brighton Escude, and Emma Patel.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Age Well or Homeward Bound of Middlebury, Vt. Both organizations were incredibly helpful in caring for Pan and her pets during her final days.◊
