Alleyne Bennett, 80, of Grand Avenue, died Sunday, Dec. 7, 1997, in Lake Haven Manor.

She was born Jan. 1, 1917, in Hutchinson, Minn., where she lived until after graduating from high school when her family moved to Sidney, Mont. She attended the University of Montana at Missoula, where she met Rev. J. Gordon Bennett. They were married June 4, 1939, and she graduated June 6, 1939, with a double major in English and sociology.

Mrs. Bennett was a loved and respected minister's wife, as her husband worked for churches in Missoula; Minneapolis; Antigo, Wis.; and Duluth. While in Antigo, she taught at Langlade County Teachers College (1959-68). In 1966, after attending summer sessions and completing a thesis, she received her Master of Arts degree in English education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Her health, but not her spirit, was diminished by Parkinson's disease, beginning about age 50. She enjoyed attending Parkinson's support group meetings.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her five children, Jim Bennett of Grand Junction, Colo., Allyn Bennett of Carroll, Ohio, Gordee Bennett of Duluth, Patrice Bonner of Roseville, Minn., and Elyse Russell of Rochester, Minn.; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and her sister, Lee Thompson of La Habra, Calif.

Burial will be in Oneota Cemetery.
