Obituary

(Nee Beno) Born to Eternal Life September 11, 2020 at the age of 66. Loving mother of Shaina. Dear sister of Lynette and Joe. Dear aunt of Shelli, Camille and Tony. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Leona Beno. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.

She devoted her life to her daughter Shaina. She beat Breast Cancer in 2000 and had a courageous battle against Throat Cancer before she passed. She was politically engaged and loved being a member of the League of Women voters. Everyone that cared for her at Muskego Health Care Center loved her and she loved hanging out with the staff there and playing bingo. Even more than that....she enjoyed getting her nails done with her daughter and going out to eat at King's Wok for Chinese and Avalanche Grill for pizza.

Special thanks to the staff of Muskego Health Care Center for their kind and compassionate care for 11 years.

Memorial gathering at Hartson Funeral Home on Thursday, September 24th from 6 to 7 PM. Memorial service 7 PM.

She was a woman of faith. She is walking again probably with a German Shepard as I remember her when I was young. It’s a nice thought. Love shelli
