Dolores Benbow

Port Monmouth - Dolores Benbow, 86, of Port Monmouth, NJ, died on December 14, 2017 at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ. She was born in New York, NY to the late Oscar and Theresa (nee O'Donohue) McQuade. Dolores worked at Young & Rubicon in New York for many years. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Knights of Columbus. Dolores was very good with her hands. She was excellent at needlepoint, crocheting, and sewing. Whenever there was news of the arrival of a family member's baby, she adored creating baby blankets and clothes. She loved arts, crafts, and ceramics. As an early riser, she loved driving to her favorite stores and this was always an enjoyable way to start her day. Right up until she went in to the hospital, she drove all over town.

Surviving are her three sons: George E. Leth and his wife Bonnie, Scott J. Benbow and her daughter-in-law Margaret, Lee J. Benbow and his wife Jackie; her grandchildren: Carol A. Leth, Stephanie L. Benbow, Scott J. Benbow Jr., James L. Benbow, Amanda M. Benbow; her great-grandchildren: Vincent and Olivia; and her many beloved nieces and nephews.

Dolores was preceded in death by both of her husbands: George Edward Leth and John Edward Benbow, and her brother, James Patrick McQuade.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, December 20, 2017 from 9-11 am at John F. Pfleger Funeral Home at 115 Tindall Road in Middletown. Funeral services are scheduled to begin at 11 am at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Fair View Cemetery in Middletown.
