Share This Obituary



I'm sorry for your loss and the lateness of this message as I just found out of Mrs. Bennett's passing. She and Mr. Bennett lived across the street from my family in the late 60's to early 70's. I remember their red chevy convertible and her cats Spook and Speck. My parents thought the world of her.

Kenneth and family,
I am so sorry to hear about Pat. I have wonderful memories of the many genealogy research trip to Salt Lake City, Mississippi and other places. I also enjoyed working with her on the Arkansas Genealogical Society Board in years past. She was a delightful, fun lady and a real genius at tracing her family history. I learned so much from Pat and appreciated her friendship.
My sympathy to you all,
Lynda Suffridge

Kenneth, Gary and Mark,

We were so sorry to hear of Pat's death. Our hearts are saddened for you all. There were lots of fun times when we lived next door on Dyson and our boys were in your house almost as much as they were their own!! Pat was a dear friend to us all. She was a great next door neighbor! May your memories be of great comfort during this very difficult time.

Dear Bennett Family,
Was saddened to read of Pat's passing.
My memories are from the high school days and what a lady, friend and sweetheart she was. It seems obvious that she brought much grace and goodness to your family life and traditions.
May God's blessings and peace continue to be with you!

KB, Mark and Gary,
I was shocked and saddened to hear about your great loss. As y'all know, Mrs. Pat and KB treated me like another son when we were growing up. In fact, I just told the story a couple of weeks ago about how I didn't even have to knock when I came inside your house through the garage door every day after school. To this day, my strongest memories are of the countless great times I had in

I am so sorry for your loss. "Miss Lape" as we knew her then was one of my all time favorite teachers. She helped instill a love for history in me. I still have the Social Studies award she gave me in the Carlisle High School awards assembly. I remember her as a sweet and caring person.
