Obituary for Marie C. Benavent

July 23, 1947 - October 6, 2017
North Aurora, Illinois | Age 70


Marie Claudette Benavent, age 70, dearest daughter of the late Maria and the late Jose Casella; dear sister of Juan (Maria) Casella and Reynaldo (Graciela) Casella; proud mother of Paul Benavent and Richard (Melissa) Benavent; precious aunt to Gary, Alex, Adriana, Gabriela, Michelle and loving grandmother to Beatrice Marie Benavent and Sophia Evelyn Benavent, was born on July 23, 1947 and passed away on October 6, 2017 when she was reunited with her mother and father in Heaven.

Marie was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and enjoyed a joyous childhood with her parents and two older brothers. She later came to the United States in 1965, where she married, raised 2 boys with her former spouse Victor Benavent, and lived a life full of new adventures. She lived in New York, New Jersey and Texas before spending her last ten years in Illinois close to her granddaughters.

Marie's passions included a fond love of nature and animals, gardening, cooking, travel, sports, movies, music and dancing. She felt her grand purpose in life was to share her experiences with her friends and family so that all could benefit. Her teachings and stories will live on in the hearts of those she touched, and the kindness and respect she had for every person she met on her journey here on Earth was obvious to all.

Marie was preceded in death by her loving parents, Maria and Jose Casella. She is survived by her brothers, Juan and Reynaldo sons, Paul and Richard and most beloved granddaughters, Beatrice Marie and Sophia Evelyn.

A service to honor her memory will be held on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 1 P.M. at The Healy Chapel, 332 W. Downer Place, Aurora, IL 60506. The family will receive friends after the service.
