Bennie lost her own mother at the age of 8 and in recent days was looking forward to that heavenly reunion with her loved ones. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend. Her married life with Bob began at a very young age in Oklahoma. They moved to California where she worked at the Owens Glass Company for a while. They moved to Texas from there and then Oklahoma and then to Arkansas. She was a full time mother and homemaker raising her four children along with raising poultry and cattle. Her home also welcomed nieces, nephews, and other family members over the years. After her children were grown she worked at Appletown in Lincoln then Universal in Prairie Grove. She was a talented seamstress, quilter, loved to crochet, and created beautiful hand embroidery work. She enjoyed raising dogs and birds and growing beautiful flowers. Bennie was an excellent cook and loved having all of her family together around the dinner table. She loved getting up early every morning and reading her Bible. Church attendance was very important to her. As a long time member of Liberty Baptist Church of Dutch Mills, she enjoyed her role on the phone committee sharing prayer requests and visiting with her friends. Her phone was a valuable treasure since she enjoyed visiting so much. She always ended calls with her family with "I Love You".

So sorry about your Mom. Both your Mom and Dad where such special people. What a wonderful legacy of family. Had the best conversation with Bennie every time I would see her. What a wonderful reunion in Heaven! God bless you all.

I’m so sorry for your loss. There is no age or time or way that makes losing them any less hard. Be strong she will be with you always. Sometimes it’ll be in an attitude you see or feel, words or stories you retell or a taste that was her favorite or a familiar smell that reminds you of her. They do live on in our memories and love.

Well Bennie you finally made it to your heavenly home! I know you are happy being there with your Lord and savior not to mention Bob and your loved ones. It will never be the same here without you. I expect to hear from you or think I should check in with you if I go somewhere?? I always teased I have to call mom to let her know where I’ll be. You continually thanked me for being your friend. In fact that is what you told me when I last spoke with you. You always told me you loved me and loved you dearly as well. I think I understood you more than most. I know after your funeral I do not want a funeral, people will just have to let me know what they think of me and yes I know what most people think anyway! ??. This is not goodbye it is see you in a little while?? Thank you for always being my friend and checking on me. ????????
