Anna L. Benson, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, at the age of 70 years old.

Anna was born in Milford, Delaware, to the late Author Young and Rachel A. Benson. She was educated in the public school systems and was a student in Lake Forest District. She earned an associate’s degree in Human Services from Delaware Technical and Community College, in Wilmington, Delaware.

Anna retired from Con Agra Foods. She also retired from the State of Delaware, where she had worked with the Division of Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities and Division of Social Services with the Department of Children, Division of Family Services, in Dover, Delaware.

Anna loved to shop and thoroughly enjoyed cooking for her family. The family would say that they loved a special meal, but all of Anna’s meals were special! She loved to watch cooking channels ALL THE DAY LONG! Anna enjoyed spending time with her children. She would often visit their homes, showing up with bags and bags of groceries and whatever else she felt they needed. And, when the children would visit her, they would often leave with meals or bags and bags of groceries.

In addition to her parents, Anna was preceded in death by her brother, George Benson.
