We have so many unique memories of Sally from Sheboygan days that it is difficult to be brief .  The Benson Halloween parties in their Blackstock Home were Classic.  We have photos of the Peterson kids, perched up in a tree, eating apples on one of Sally & Ken's pumpkin choosing kids parties at "The Farm",  admiring her American Club floral arrangements,  chatting over coffee in my kitchen in Minneapolis, remembering how she ate the entire apple, core and all, "entirely edible & nutritious" she'd comment.  Mortality, tough to reconcile sometimes, but we sure do have good memories of this fine woman.

You don’t know me but I met both Ken & Sally at Idaho Veterans Home when my dad was there in 2018/2019. I am very sorry for your loss. Sally had an amazing life!

What a beautiful obituary.  My memories of Aunt Sal always revolve around her smile.  She always seemed interested in me when we would talk and that taught me to do the same with my niece.  
I am so lucky to have had her in my life.

To Sally Drewry Benson

Sally was so special to me growing up as I did not have any sisters. She was about my age. She had a successful life with a wonderful husband and family.
