grandma benson.

by Janetha on July 7, 2012

in family time

this is grandma benson. my dad’s mom.


grandma benson died in the middle of the night. it’s sad, but it was a good thing because she has been in a lot of pain lately. she has also been missing her husband ever since he passed away, so i am glad they are together once again.

i don’t mention my extended family too often–it’s simply because i rarely see them. but that doesn’t mean i don’t love them lots. my grandma and i didn’t see each other much or know each other well. but i do know she was a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. 

here are a few photos of grandma benson and our family through the years.



we love you, grandma b.

So sorry about your grandma, but I am glad she’s back with her husband! I was just at my Uncle’s memorial last week, and I know that my Uncle and Dad are splitting a Dr. Pepper and fishing together! :D

I loved the photos of her wedding. Beautiful!

Janetha, I’m so sorry to hear about Grandma Benson. Hopefully she is in a good place now and reunited with the love of her life. I adore that first photo of your grandparents- the one with the camera looking down on them. It’s so beautiful!

Janetha Michelle and I are both so sorry for your loss. Losing a grandparent is never easy. It still feels like yesterday when our grandpa passed away.

You and your family are in our prayers!!

Wow, those early photos were stunning! And it’s so fun to see Momma B over the years. I’m glad that she’s with her husband now but sad, especially for your Dad. He’s so lucky to have had her so long! <3
