Arlene Amanda Senne Benoy, 102, born to Walter Senne and Florence (Nordmeier) Senne on October 18, 1919 passed peacefully at home on Thursday, December 30, 2021.
Having lost her mother at a young age, Arlene and her sister Audrey were raised primarily by their beloved grandparents Fred and Minnie (Wille) Senne. She graduated from Woodstock High school in 1938 and on February 28, 1939 Arlene and Darrel Constantine Benoy were married. While Darrel was serving in WWII, Arlene remained in Woodstock to support family. She worked at Alemite Die Casting, Inc., and later Autolite. Arlene continued in the work force and retired from Guardian Electric after 30 years of service. Her proudest moments, however, were raising two sons, being there for her grandchildren and finally snuggling with her great-grandson.
Arlene is loved and missed by her children, Ronald (Carol) Benoy, Leslie (Joanne Sweeny) Benoy; her grandchildren, Andrew Benoy and Danielle (Jonathan) Borowicz; her great-grandson, Elias Christopher Borowicz and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her grandparents, parents, husband, sister, and brothers and sisters-in-law.
A special thank you from the family for the caring support and guidance from Northern Illinois Hospice.
