Obituary of Janet C. Benson



Janet C. Benson born December 20, 1945, was surrounded by her loving family when God called upon her to enter in eternal peace on July 23, 2023.


Janet loved taking "road trips" she would jump in her car and just run the roads stopping by all the familiar locations of family and friends with her tagalong partner in the front seat her chihuahua "Alejandro". She has always had a soft spot for animals and recently birds, her favorite being the Loon.


Everyone that knew Janet pretty much had the same opinion about her, she was a strong-willed woman with a great heart. She was employed by the City of Albany as a Matron for a while and then went on to work for Albany Housing Authority as a dispatcher where she retired from.


She is predeceased by her father Clayton Benson, mother Florence Benson (Vandemore) and her daughter, Faith Deming.


Survived by two of her daughters Laura Deming (Vic), Patti Beeker (Chris) one son Robert Deming (Danielle) extended daughter Heidi Repscher (Ian), granddaughters: Angela Penson (Alfred), Rachel Roland, Alicia Seymour, Deanna Liebe, extended grandchildren: Jason, Mark, and Sarah. And great grandchildren: Malachi, Adarius, Kenadee, Kendall, Jayden, Talyah, Tristan and Egypt. She was the lifelong friend of Mitzi Dominic and Marge Welch (predeceased).


Cremation has taken place through the care of Simple Choices, Inc.


A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2023, at 10 o’clock in St Paul's Episcopal Church, 21 Hackett Blvd., Albany, NY 12208. All family and friends are welcome to attend.
