Penni Lyn Green, the daughter of J.T. and Patricia Janelle (Hunt) Sego, was born June 18, 1957 in Haskell, Texas and departed this life on July 18, 2017 in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the age of 60 years and 1 month.
Penni lived a huge life and enjoyed every minute of it. She was especially proud of her son, Burdge, and grandkids, Bo and Mabel Kate. She graduated from Tahlequah Public Schools, attended Northeastern State University and received a Bachelor's degree from University of Central Oklahoma. She was an accomplished accountant working for the Oklahoma State Auditor’s Office, CFO for Home Health Companies and several different accounting firms in the Oklahoma City area, where she lived most of her life. For nine years Penni lived in Minneapolis, MN where she was the director of the savings department of the largest bank in town and a part-time photographer. Penni grew up with an enormous love of animals. She had cats and dogs that were constant companions throughout her entire life. She loved the summertime and enjoyed being out on the water skiing, canoeing or soaking up the sunshine. She enjoyed photography, art and music. She attended numerous art festivals, plays, and concerts. Humor was her way of life, though she may have been a little dry and sarcastic. She was very opinionated and stubborn, but if you knew Penni you loved her. She was a great story-teller and had many lively, eventful stories to share. She was an adventurer and could get around anywhere, in any country, on her own. Penni loved her nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews and each birthday they would receive a special birthday present from her. She was an accomplished conversationalist who never met a stranger. Everyone truly loved Penni. She will be dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by her mother Patricia Janelle (Hunt) Sego.
She is survived by a loving family which includes her son Dr. Burdge Green IV and wife Lisa and her grandchildren Bo and Mabel Kate Green of Fayetteville, AR; her father J.T. Sego II and his wife Christy of Tahlequah; her brother Jim T.

Where do I begin. First and foremost I am so sorry I was not able to attend the services for Penni. My heart ❤️ is sadden by the loss of my beautiful sweet friend whom I met back at Home Team Home Health. In Oklahoma City. She was married with a child. I instantly clicked with Penni, I loved her honesty and quick wit. I know she loved her son with all he heart and spoke of him often. We clicked because I too had children. There were many days we laughed and Penni always had a good story. I am so very thankful I got to see Penni twice these last few months. She was so brave and hid her fear well. We prayed and talked about the good old days. I am sadden by the loss of this young vibrant beauty, but thankful her health is now restored and she is in the arms of Jesus. Burdge, I admire you and I know your Mom was incredibly proud of you. Thank you for doing the best you could to help her. I know from experience that it's not a easy task taking care of a terminally I'll loved one when you pretty much know the outcome, but must remain strong. My prayers for strength and comfort go out to all of you. I will miss her but I say go soar high my friend with the eagles where death pain are no more..
My love always..
So sorry for your loss. May God bless you and keep you and family wrapped in his love and grace.

Penni was everything her obit says and more. An amazingly funny and quick-witted woman with friends to numerous to count. She had an infectious laugh, and a beautiful smile. The Illinois River All Female Flotilla will have one less oar to splash on the river. We will miss our sweet friend so much.
