Penny Klabunde

Board Member


Penny Klabunde is a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, and St. Mark’s representative on the Family Nurturing Center Board.

Penny was a public school teacher for 40 years, primarily kindergarten, fourth and fifth grades. She spent 38 of those years at Wilson School in Medford. She chaired the Wilson Site Council, designed Outdoor Education programs, directed the Student Council and planned school-wide activities and assemblies. Upon retirement, Penny enlisted the generosity of colleagues, friends and family to establish the Wilson School Scholarship to benefit former Wilson students seeking higher education.

A 1976 graduate of Whittier College, Penny moved to the Rogue Valley the same year. She and her husband, Kevin, are thankful for the family life they each enjoyed as children, for the blessings of raising two daughters in Southern Oregon and for newfound joys as grandparents! The Family Nurturing Center is a welcoming, supportive place to “strengthen families so that children can live safely and develop fully in their parents’ care.” It is a privilege to be a part of such an endeavor.
