Vestal – Helen Bennett, 92, went to be with the Lord at UHS on January 9, 2024 after a short illness. She had been healthy most of her life and had a very good life. She had excellent care at UHS, a big thank you to nurses & staff there. We know we will see her again someday – What a day of rejoicing that will be! Helen was predeceased by her husband of 73 years, Richard Bennett, her parents Albert & Frida Schuh, and sisters Hilda and Emma. She is survived by her much-loved children and their spouses Linda and Thomas Macbeth, and Richard and Cindy Bennett; grandchildren Robert Hyde, Carrie (Hyde) Little, Jeri Ann (Bennett) Filan, plus Tina (Macbeth) Shay and John Macbeth; great-grandchildren Joshua, Jaime, Kali, Taylor, Paige, Emily, Caleb, Abigail, plus Madison, Katelyn, Olivia, Victoria and Lindsey, with one more on the way; great-great grandchildren Tanner, Levi, Jackson, Wyatt and Theo; along with several nieces, nephews and friends.
Helen loved her family and was always ready to help them in any way she could. She enjoyed baking and sharing her baked goods when she visited friends and family (which was often). She could even make a great German Spaetzle dish. Her favorite meal was waffles with ice cream at the Broadway Diner – she always cleaned the whole full plate! At the recent party for her 92nd birthday she was fun, caring and had a surprise visit from Santa (her beloved nephew David Mead). Across that long active life, there was family camping, snowmobiling, and many a polka. We share this prayer that Helen lovingly shared with her family – “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord, my soul to keep; If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord, my soul to take”.
Funeral services will be 2:00 pm Saturday January 20 at the Hopler & Eschbach Funeral Home, 483 Chenango St. Binghamton. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Saturday from 1:00 pm until the time of service. Burial will be private in Vestal Hills Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial gifts in her name to Mercy House. Sign the online guestbook at www.HEFUNERALHOME.com
