  1. I have fond memories of Lola’s parents visiting my grandparents, her uncle and aunt in Britton, SD and also Lola and Benny coming to Britton at various times too. Saw them in Gwinner, ND , where her parents lived and she grew up, when I was a young girl.We are so sorry to hear of her death and for all of her family for their loss of a lovely woman! May the memories her life sustain you now and always and may God wrap his arms around you and give you his comfort and loving care.

  3. The heart has its own memory and we hope that in her memory you continue to discover the rich legacy she has left you and find comfort.

    When I met Lola and her sisters, I felt the same vitality and humor of their father, Uncle Carl. Very fun!

    May every thought sent to you
    Give you strength to see it through.

  4. My condolences to the Benson family. Grandma Benson was such a lovely woman and always treated me as part of the family, just as everyone else in the Benson and Towner families always have. I know she will be dearly missed, and I pray for God’s peace to be with you all.

  6. I met Mrs. Benson many years ago when I helped design Dr. Benson’s office in Webster. She was always so full of life. I will always remember her for that twinkle in her eye. Our hearts go out to Dr. Benson, Pamela, Paula and Penny.

    For the last many years I have kept up with her comings & goings through Pamela, my Bunco friend.

    God bless you all and keep you in his arms during this time of sorrow.

  7. My sincere condolences to you and your family during this difficult time and may the “God of all comfort” provide you and your family with comfort and peace during this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3-7). I pray that you find hope in the beautiful promise the Bible contains for the future at John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.
