Condolence: This news saddens me so. I have so many memories from my youth in that special house. Frannie always in the kitchen doing something. Can still feel and smell it in my mind.
My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

Condolence From: Julie Garwood Mannos
Condolence: Sadly, I never had an opportunity to meet Mrs. Benton, only some of her children. If her wonderful children are a reflection of the kind of person she was, then she must have been a strong, courageous, funny, loving, kind, and generous woman. I'm sure she will be greatly missed by everyone in the community and especially her family. May God give the Benton family comfort and peace during this difficult time. Love and hugs from the Garwood family.

Condolence From: Doug & Eileen Yordy
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear that my Aunt Frances has passed away. I know she is in a better place and is reunited with all of her family that has gone on before her. I enjoyed my last phone conversation with her Saturday morning and just wish she was still here for the family gathering we had all planned. My condolences to all of my cousins and their families for the loss of their Mother. I will still be coming up to Oregon next week for the funeral and a time to celebrate her life and to share memories with everyone.

Love, Doug & Eileen Yordy
