Eva C. Benson

Westfield, PA: Eva C. Benson, 86, of Westfield, PA, died May 18, 2011 at Darway Elder Care Rehabilitation Center after a spirited struggle with a long and debilitating illness. Born March 30, 1925, she was the daughter of the late Nellie and Francis Kump. She graduated from Cowanesque Valley High School with honors in June of 1943. On September 21, 1949, in Corning, NY, she married William H. (Bill) Benson who predeceased her on March 9, 1999. Eva retired in 1987 from Cornell University after a long and successful career as Manager of Telecommunications. She was a generous, loving, and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and we will miss her dearly but are comforted knowing that she is now with her beloved husband. Eva was a passionate and competitive softball player and an amazing cook whose homemade mac-n-cheese, three bean salad, and apple pie crust were considered "the best". She loved playing cards, camping with her grandchildren, the New York Yankees, and watching Johnny Carson and Dean Martin on late night TV. She was a dedicated member of the Westfield United Methodist Church. Surviving her are her daughter, Donna Stewart of Sayre, PA; two sons, William B. Benson of Westfield, PA and Richard R. Benson of Ithaca, NY; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; two brothers, Eugene Kump of Elkland, PA and George Kump of Westfield, PA and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at the United Methodist Church, 158 Church Street, Westfield, PA, at 2PM on Saturday followed by burial at Champlin Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Weill Cornell Medical College, 1300 York Avenue, New York, NY, 10065. Arrangements are entrusted to the Kenyon Funeral Home, Westfield, PA
