Gwennie Benson passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January
28, 2014. She was born on October 29,
1952 and grew up in Mound, MN.
Gwennie was married to her true love Dean for 19 years and she now joins him in heaven. She is survived by her two children, Vance (Trisha) & Amy (Anthony). Gwennie had two grandchildren, Ben & Miranda, that she loved to the moon and back and let them know every single day. Her sisters Suzie and Sandy and brother Butch, 2 beautiful nieces & 5 nephews who she loved like her own. Family was the most important part of her life.
Recently she moved to Clearwater, FL with Amy and her family to enjoy fun in the sun, beaches and warmer weather. They were very fortunate to have 7 months in paradise before she passed away. Gwennie enjoyed her crafts and torturing her children with scary movies.
She enjoyed life to the fullest, thought the best of everyone in every situation. EVERYONE loved her. She was the crazy lady across the street who was a foster mom to a multitude of animals.
Vance & Amy were not expecting her sudden death and unfortunately, we are not prepared financially. She was on disability, did not have life insurance and had a fixed income; which everyone knows is not enough to cover the cost of all of the necessary financial arrangements.
We appreciate all and any help; no amount is too small (or too big!).
Love, Vance Schwartz & Amy Gerving
