|“||“Penny lives with her mom, Pam, in a little trailer by the river. While Pam is out carousing at the saloon, Penny quietly tends to her chores in the dim, stuffy room she is forced to call home. She is shy and modest, without any grand ambitions for life other than settling in and starting a family. She likes to cook (although her skills are questionable) and read books from the local library.”|
|— Dev Update #12|
Penny can usually be found in town reading or cleaning up at the trailer she shares with Pam.

Many Saturdays in Spring and Fall she'll take them to the town playground.
On the 4th of Winter, she has an appointment at the clinic.

During the eight-heart cutscene, Vincent remarks that he once saw Sam and Penny climbing trees, at which Penny becomes visibly startled and scolds Vincent for gossiping. ConcernedApe has explained that he "wasn't trying to imply anything serious" with the scene regarding a continuation of Penny's interest in Sam. "[At 8 hearts,] she's not actually interested in Sam any more."
