Death Notice (01/06/01)
BENSON, Olga - Peacefully, at her daughter's home on January 1, 2001, in her 64th year, to be welcomed into God's Kingdom. Loving Mother of Michele Sharp (of Niagara Falls) and her children Brandon, Graham, Dillon and Kalleigh and of Shelley and Jeff Hart (of Whitby) and their children Kaitlin, Mitchell and Sarah. Surrogate daughter of Fred and Pat Benson of Campbellville who have faithfully and lovingly expressed their prayers and love for our Mom. The manner in which she lived her life, always giving to others came full circle in the manner others were able to give to her. We were fortunate to be able to care for our Mom at home in spite of the government's indifference towards our health care system. Thank you to our nurse Dana for her years of kindness, service and friendship towards our Mother, palliative nursing care as this is so welcomed. Thank you Dr. McGarry for the considerate and respectful manner in which you treated our Mother. Although we will miss our Mom and grandmother, we have seen the wonderful side of humanity in the respectful and dignified care our Mom has received from the gracious women she was honored to have care for her. We would also like to thank you for being so kind to her grandchildren. All of her caregivers are very special and dedicated people and we really appreciate your concern extended toward her. Michele would like to thank her wonderful children for the love and care they have shown their grandmother during her three-year stay with us, for all the times you unselfishly assisted her requests; and especially to Brandon, you have such a loving spirit demonstrated in the hours you sat with your grandma, reading the Bible to her and gently talking to and comforting her. I am so proud and honoured to have the privilege of being your Mom. Thank you Shelley for being a partner in this journey. We were blessed with an unselfish Mother and our children have wonderful memories of a grandmother who adored them. Our children in their innocence are our great teachers. Michele would also like to thank Janet, Nancy and her Professors at Niagara College for their concern and understanding, it has not gone unnoticed. It is my desire this chain of kindness will continue through me and be passed onto others. At Olga's request, there was a private family service and it is her wish to have her cremated remains taken to a peaceful and beautiful Valley back home in Saskatchewan. Please do not express regrets to the family, there are none. She has shown us the strength and determination a human spirit is capable of. Olga lived over 30 years after her first of three different cancer diagnosis's. She did not let it rob her of raising her daughters, enjoying all of her wonderful grandchildren, or living an independent life with wonderful friends. She will be especially missed by dedicated friends Sonya and Marg. At Olga's and her daughters' request, please do not send any flowers. In memoriam of Olga, contributions to a trust fund to assist Stephen Sharp, a young man who was recently the victim of a horrible beating would be appreciated, as well as your prayers. Donations may be completed at Hetherington & Deans Funeral Chapel, 5176 Victoria Avenue, NF, L2E 4E3 (354-5614). Olga fought a great battle and now can rest in peace, unfearful of what is to come, free of needles, medication and pain. It is in giving that we receive, in pardoning that we are pardoned and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
