Obituary of Patricia Benson Smith Smith

Patricia J. Benson Smith, 90, of Jamestown went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 8, 2022. She was born on March 17, 1932, to the late Hazel and Arnold Benson. On August 18, 1956, she married the late Allen F. Smith, and lived at Falconer-Kimball Stand Rd. in Falconer, NY. After her retirement, Patricia moved to Jamestown, NY. She graduated from Jamestown High School in 1951. She loved to be social and filled her social calendar with “Tuesday Girls Out”, being the “Queen” for the local Red Hatters Group, Committee for the “Class of ‘51”, and Levant’s BYF. Patricia developed a strong faith in God through being very active in church throughout her life, in Kidder Methodist, Camp Street Church and Levant Wesleyan Church. Some of the best times of Patricia’s life were when she and Allen went on trips with their two daughters, friends, and family. Weekend ‘Girl’s Trips’ with her daughters, Becki, and Judy, were always times she cherished. She enjoyed the Smith’s Reunions, and later in life went on many trips with her friends: Marilyn, Elaine, Claudia and Marie. Left to cherish her memories are her daughters: Becki Jean Heyl (Steve Coan) and Judy Ann (Greg) Grimm; four grandchildren: Cassandra Heyl, Cory Heyl, Bethanne Grimm (Cody Bupp), and Jacob Grimm; one great grandson: Paul Heyl; one half-sister: Arla Weibl of Johnsonburg, PA; three half-brothers: Brad Benson, Dean Benson, and Dennis Benson, all of Johnsburg, PA; and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Patricia is preceded in death by her parents: Hazel and Arthur Johnson, and Arnold and Mabel Benson; and her husband: Allen Smith. A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, April 16, 2022, at Levant Wesleyan Church at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Chautauqua County Hospice and Palliative Care, the Gary Sinise Foundation for Veterans, or the Levant Wesleyan Church.
