Cathy (Benson)


The family of Cathy (Benson) Gillette would like to thank everyone for their kindness, prayers, support & friendships throughout her life. Special appreciation to Anna & Keith who have been there for all of us, through both good times and sad times. To her fellow nursing career family; friends she shared with her husband Ken, especially neighbors Tony, Laurie (Marc), and Ken's co-workers at the Deerwood Bank & Kinney Realty; and to her new friends at No. Lks Senior Living Apts.

We are also grateful for Nick, Mary & Dan at Koop's Funeral Home who's compassion, knowledge and professionalism helped ease the process of making arrangements. To Pastor Paul for his kind words of faith, peace and hope. To our family friend, Mary Lou, for the music and for accompanying brother Ben as he sang songs that have a special meaning to our family. To the members of Immanuel Lutheran for serving lunch and performing other duties that were needed. To all who sent flowers and plants to adorn homes of the family members as a living memory. They were arranged beautifully by our friends Nancy, Julie, and Judy.

Also we thank the people who were responsible for snow removal and care of the gravesite at the Oak Grove Nokay Lake Township Cemetery. God Bless You All.
