Remembering Priscilla Bennett

Priscilla Faith Dohse Bennett

December 14, 1932 - October 24, 2013


I am taking time away this weekend to be with my husband's family as we gather to remember his dear mother, Priscilla who went to live in Heaven with Jesus last week. 


 I know that all of the angels are rejoicing to have her there, but as everyone knows, it's always difficult to see a loved one leave this earth.

We rejoice in knowing that mom is no longer suffering from all of the illnesses that would not allow her to walk and to talk with us, but, she will still be missed by everyone she touched here on earth. Season by Season - flower 2

I take comfort in knowing she is with my mom in heaven and they are both smiling down on all their kids and grandkids and great grandkids!  What sweet comfort that picture brings!


Below: I photographed this out of one of the scrapbooks I made years ago... this is how I will most remember Eric's mom... COOKING!  As a mother of 5, you know she cooked a LOT of meals in her years!

As I was reading through one of my daily devotional books, I found this verse and I said, THIS describes Priscilla...

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole heart!

Psalm 119:2

Patty, There is great comfort knowing that both of your mothers knew Jesus and are walking and talking with Him, fully whole in body, mind and spirit.

The best is yet to come when we come face to face with our Maker and are reunited with our loved one who've gone on before.

May the presence and peace of our Heavenly Father bring comfort to your hearts; today and in the days ahead.

Aren't our hearts miraculous things? They keep us alive in more than a mechanical way. They let us store so much love and so many memories,it's amazing. Treasures we can't lose. What a sadness and a joy her passing must be. We are here for only a short while and her loss has brought you grief and sadness, but there is comfort and joy in knowing where she will be for eternity, with our Lord and Savior. Not really "gone," just in a glorious new home. Well done faithful servant.


so very sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers and good thoughts for you all.

Your mother-in-law looks like someone I'd love to know. Just a sweet friendly mom who loved her family and the Lord. I'm sorry for your loss, but it's certainly Heaven's gain when we know our loved ones are there. Blessings to you and your family.


Your Family are in my prayers.

Nancy Boffo

I am so sorry for your loss. My husband and I have lost 3 parents in the past 3 years and we know how difficult it is to lose a parent. And like you, we have found peace and comfort in knowing that our parents knew Jesus as their personal Savior and therefore are whole and happy at the Lord's side in Heaven. I will continue to pray for you and your family. God bless you.



I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family are filled with happiness while you all remember days when she was healthy and happy.

Sending prayers your way;

~Shawnie B.
