Donna "Dawn" Penezich-McClintock

March 19, 1958 — December 18, 2020


Donna “Dawn” Penezich McClintock of Warren passed away unexpectedly on Friday, December 18, 2020 from complications during surgery at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. She was 62. She left this life to go into the loving arms of her LORD and savior Jesus Christ.

Donna was born on March 19, 1958 in Brownfield, PA, the daughter of the late Donald McClintock and Bonnie Giaurtis.

Dawn graduated from Warren G. Harding high school. She was a loving homemaker who married the love of her life, Frank Penezich, on August 6, 1993. She loved to spend time with her beloved family, especially her children and grandchildren. Most of all Dawn was a very faithful daughter and servant of Jesus. She never missed a day reading and studying her Bible. She attended Seeking God’s Glory Church in Warren and loved worshipping and praising with her SGG church family.

Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Frank Penezich; a son, Jeremy (Julie) McClintock of Columbus; a daughter Cree (Jerry) Denno of Lordstown; 5 grandchildren, Justin, Jonah, Kayleigh, Ryan, and Patrick; a brother, Donald McClintock; 2 sisters, Lori (Todd) Curry and Peggy McClintock; mother-in-law, Vianna Penezich; 2 brothers-in-law, Steve (Sandra) Penezich and Mike (Pam) Penezich; a sister-in-law, Laura Penezich; and many nieces and nephews who she loved very much.

Dawn was preceded in death by her father, Donald McClintock, her mother Bonnie (Jim) Giaurtis, her sisters, Erica Thomas and Lisa Platt, father-in-law, Frank Penezich, and her sister-in-law Evelyn Minor.

She was the most SELFLESS woman you could ever meet who loved to help anyone in need and gave from her lack, not from her gain. She will be VERY deeply missed by all her family, friends, and anyone who had the honor of knowing her, especially her special needs grandson Jonah Fox, who made her life a little brighter because even at the age of twenty he loved nothing more than going to his grandma’s house.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her memory to Seeking God’s Glory Church at 3217 Surrey Rd., SE, Warren, OH 44481.
