Daughter of Carroll Smith Fisher and Mary Lillian Parker. She married Wilmer Kersey Benson, Sr, on 31 January 1906, and was a devoted wife and mother. They lived at 114 Pine Street, Wyoming, Delaware all of their life, until she was unable to care for herself, and moved into a private nursing home in Dover, Delaware, in 1975, at the insistence of her family. She had two children: Lillian Fisher Benson (born 18 Dec 1906, died 30 June 1990) and Wilmer Kersey Benson, Jr (born 2 Nov 1915, died 19 July 1999).
