To the Benson and Hunter families, so sorry to hear “Aunt” Grace passed. So many fond memories of her. She and “Uncle” Dab are together again.

Such sad news. Gracie was one of my favorite people. She was always so positive and had a wonderful smile. We played bridge together for years and she was a formidable player. I have been missing her all this year and will continue missing her each and every time I think of her. I know she had a very strong faith so now she is at peace in Heaven and I am sure she is smiling down on us. Love you, Gracie, Sue Hill

Our deepest condolences are with Emmy and her children and grandson and also our hearts go out to Grace’s beloved daughter, Gracie, son-in-law, Dave, and her three most treasured Grandsons. We will always remember Grace in our hearts, her smile, her friendship, her love and her most precious sense of humor. We have many, many wonderful memories of Grace, hosting her New Year’s parties always were always a highlight, traveling to Aruba with Grace will forever make me smile. If there’s one thing we will forever bring smiles to our hearts, it will be Grace’s sense of humor and infectious smile. God be with those you left behind Gracie, Heaven gained a great lady. Rest In Peace forever with your beloved Dab.

I was saddened to learn of the loss of Gracie. She was a lovely person. We grew up in Shamokin, belonged to the same church and went to the same high school. Our parents were close friends. I am slightly younger than Gracie and Emmy but was always fond of them both. I offer sincere condolences to her family and friends.
