Betty A. (Stevens) Bennett
Betty A. (Stevens) Bennett, 90, went to be with the Lord at 9:21 pm on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at the home of her daughter. She finished the race exactly how she wanted, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Ross County to the late Clifford E. and Alice (Peart) Stevens. Betty was united in marriage on June 25, 1950 to John E. Bennett, who preceded her in death on March 1, 2021.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Debra Sue (Bennett) Park; great granddaughter, Alice Louise Lloyd; sister and brother-in-law, Adeline (Norman) Brenneman; brother-in-law, Kenneth Clark; brother/sister-in-law, Ed (Pat) Bennett; sister-in-law, Ruth Thompson; and father/mother-in-law, Claris (Evelyn) Bennett; and nephew Larry Brenneman.
Betty is survived by her son, Dan (Debbie) Bennett; daughter, Bonnie (Joe) King; son-in-law, Nathan Park; grandchildren, Heath (Angela) Bennett, Heather (Mike) Schultz, Ty (Julie) Park, Marty (Leah) Park, Bret (Grace) King, Jamie (Kristen) King, Kimberly (Blake) Lloyd; great grandchildren, Caleb (Paige) Bennett, Isaac and Peyton Bennett, Jordyn and Riley Schultz, Evan and Allison Park, Neilsen, Tye Lynn, Asa, Forrest and Strider Park, Carly, Claire and Catie King, Kailen, Eliana and Matias King, Adeline, Oliver and Eva Lloyd; great-great grandchildren, Paislee and Colt Bennett; sister-in-law, Jean (Bennett) Clark, and several nieces and nephews.
Betty graduated from Chillicothe High School in 1950. She worked at F.W. Woolworth as a restaurant manager, then as an office manager before retiring in 1974. She spent several years as a caregiver to her daughter and both sets of parents, as well as, others who needed help.
She was a breath of life to the residents at Liberty Village, where she lived the past 9 months. She was so loved there and was voted queen by the residents. Her greatest joy was loving and giving to others and her favorite quote was, “Don’t take away my blessing.” It was not unusual to find money stuffed in your pocket or shirt after you paid for something she wanted to pay for. Betty would definitely give you the shirt off of her back.
Her family was her most cherished possession on this earth and always put them first, never wanting to be a burden. Her love and concern for others will always be remembered.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. at Freedom Ministries Church in Frankfort, Ohio with her son, Pastor Dan Bennett officiating. Burial will follow in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Kingston with graveside services with her grandsons, Heath Bennett and Jamie King officiating. The family will receive friends on Tuesday from 4 - 7 p.m. at the HILL FUNERAL HOME, Kingston, and one hour prior to the funeral on Wednesday at the church. Memorial contributions may be made in Betty's honor to Freedom Ministries Church (P.O. Box 34, Frankfort, OH 45628). Condolences can be made on Betty’s online guest registry at www.hillfhkingston.com.
