      Margaret Bennett

      Margaret Geraldine (Gerry) Bennett Passed away peacefully while at home in Lynden, Washington. Born in 1921 in Glenn's Ferry, Idaho, Gerry grew up in Davis, California and attended Sacramento City College. She was preceded in death by the two loves of her life, her husband of 16 years, Ken Dunn, and her second husband, Ralph Bennett, who died in 1984. She lived in Los Altos, California for more than 30 years. Gerry was an active Episcopalian at both St. Peter's Church in Redwood City and St. Timothy's in Mountain View and served for many years on the Alter Guild and was President, twice. She was always active socially, working with the PTA while raising her two daughters, volunteering at the Redwood City Women's Club, Menerton's (and their gift shop), and later, the Atherlons. She was a gifted seamstress and needle pointer. Her love of her family and friends and her amazing wit will be missed by many. She was a gracious and giving person, always worrying about others ahead of herself. Gerry will be greatly missed by her daughters, Patti and husband John Leach, and Barbara Dunn; her grandchildren, Kelton Leach, Marina Flores, Matthew Rose, and Christopher Giudicelli; her sisters, Charlotte Holder and Beverly Hardwick; and numerous nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Gerry's life will be held on December 19, 2011, at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Redwood City, at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Peter's Building Fund, 178 Clinton St., Redwood City, CA 94062. Gerry's family wishes to thank Hospice of Whatcom County, Washington, and Lynda Richards for her love, care, and friendship. Arrangements are under the care of Moles Good Steward Funerals, Lynden, WA.
