In Memory of

Carmella Penny-Fatino

February 4, 1975 - January 1, 2021


Carmella Penny-Fatino
February 4, 1975 – January 1, 2021
Carmella Penny-Fatino, age 45, of Belton, Missouri, left this life on January 1, 2021, due to COVID-19. She was born on February 4, 1975 to James and Connie Penny, who both preceded her in death. Carmella spent the majority of her life in the Kansas City, Missouri area, graduating from Center Alternative High School in 1993.  She went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Baker University and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Webster University. She was employed as Controller for Titan Construction in Lenexa, Kansas.
Carmella loved deeply and protected those she loved fiercely. Her laugh was contagious and she had a knack for finding the humor in this life. She had a passion for politics and one of her favorite past times was political activism.  She loved watching (and screaming at) the Kansas City Chiefs.  She also enjoyed traveling and experiencing different cultures, wine and food.
Her most prideful accomplishment was her son, Dustin Robert Belton, 26.  The love they shared and their bond was remarkable.  They shared a love of boston terriers, of which Carmella fostered and adopted many throughout the years. They also shared a love of travel and were able to share many trips throughout the continental United States and beyond.
Carmella was recently married on October 31, 2020 after several years of deep love and adventure with Michael Carmen Fatino. They shared a love that was undeniable to anyone that met them. Through their travels and adventure together they shared many happy times that changed them both for the better.
She is also survived by her sister, Jacqueline Penny (Troy Smith) of Peculiar, Missouri and her two children, Sydney and Kaiden Brown, as well as a large extended family and many, many friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue or Lupus Foundation of America, Heartland Chapter.

I’m at a complete loss for words. Sending all the love and support from my heart to Mike and to everyone.

Mike (and family) –

My heart is aching for you. C19 is awful. Its mean. Its ruthless. However it horrible, when you are ready, I know your celebrations Carmella will be much stronger – she lived life fully and in turn, so did you. Draw from this as you move into your future.

With much love,

Cousin Dana (with Ben, Shamus & Carmen)

Iam sadden by the passing of my niece, I visited you when you were still in a baby crib at your grandmothers home in Bolivar in 1975, I remember it like it was yesterday, your parents are so happy, you have Loved and given love to so many people, may you be blessed in heaven, Amen

Mike & Dustin I am so very sorry for your loss. I’m praying for you all. I always heard lots of stories about you both. Carmella was one of the few people I would talk to daily at work. She was a good friend, and my favorite boss I’ve ever had. I will miss our talks, stories and laughs. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed so much.

I have met Carmella through my granddaughter in-law, Jacqueline Penny. My deepest sympathy goes to Jacqueline and to the rest of Carmella’s family. May God bless you all, and may she rest in peace.
