Louise Benson (Kucharski)
GLENVILLE Louise Ann Benson passed away peacefully on 6/8/18 at her “home away from home” in Glenville.
Louise was born in Exeter, PA on March 7, 1931. A graduate of Wilkes College in PA, Louise relocated to Waterford, NY in 1958 when she married the love of her life and best friend, Joseph P. Benson. Louise and Joe were married for over 50 years while residing in Waterford until Joe’s passing in 2009. Over the years, Louise worked as a Medical Technologist at St. Clare’s, Cohoes, Leonard and Samaritan Hospitals.
She is survived by her children, Patricia Archer, Ellen O’Connor, Anthony Benson, Brigid Schaffer, John, Roseann and Paul Benson; and her 16 grandchildren.
Louise’s family would like to acknowledge their heartfelt appreciation for the kindness, compassion, care and friendship provided to Louise by Donna, Kim, Chris and Kierra from Rely Health Care Services, her faithful friend and caregiver, Jeanette Balkisson, Dr. Arthur Lee and Sharon Caruso from Capital Care Medical Group as well as Patti Allen, Elaine Polsinelli, Fr. J Thomas Connery, Fr. Jerome Gingras and all of her Waterford and Glenville neighbors and friends too numerous to mention here. All of their support allowed Louise to remain at home surrounded by her family, friends, love and laughter until she joined her husband in heaven to begin enjoying her eternal reward.
