Mar 31, 1938 – Aug 8, 2010
Jill Merion Benbow (nee Price) of Birch Island, BC, was born in Handsworth, Birmingham, England on March 31, 1938. She passed away peacefully on August 8, 2010 at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital, Clearwater, BC. Jill is survived by her husband of 48 years, Austin, her sister Dianne, daughters Louise (Tom), Rachel (Andre), Frances, and by her loving grandchildren, Megan, Anthony and Katherine. She was predeceased by her daughter, Gillian Benbow.
Raised and educated in England, Jill worked as a civil servant until she immigrated to Canada in 1968. Here she raised her family and later became a tax specialist and educator for 20 years. Jill was a very kind and considerate person who was always there with a sympathetic ear; she will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. She loved to travel all her life, and in later years she made several trips to Europe.
A Memorial Service for Jill Benbow will be held at the Moss Family Farm, McCracken Road, Birch Island, at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 15, 2010. No flowers, please, but donations to Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary would be appreciated.Print This Obituary & Condolences
