Alice M. Bennett

September 5, 1936 ~ August 29, 2019 (age 82)


Alice M. Bennett, 82, of Dolgeville, New York, passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon, August 29, 2019 in Salisbury, New York in the comfort of her family's care.


She was born on September 5, 1936 in Deerfield, New York and was the daughter of the late, William and Yvette (Martin) Brucker.  She was educated at a one room school house and then went on to St. Mary's School and eventually graduated from Little Falls High School, Class of 1953.


On October 27, 1956, Alice was united in marriage to Daniel Bennett at St. Mary's Church in Little Falls, New York.  The couple shared a blessed union of 60 years together where they raised their nine children in a loving home. 


Alice spent most of her life as a loving homemaker, caring for her family.  She enjoyed sewing, reading, baking cakes, pies, holiday cookies,  and NASCAR.  She felt a sense of pride to be able to see what great people her children had become as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren for whom she loved dearly.  She enjoyed watching them grow and find their way into this crazy world.  I know they will go far in their lives.  Alice will be missed deeply by her loving family.


She is survived by her nine beloved children, Mark Bennett and his wife, Ellen of Salisbury Center, NY; Michael Bennett and his wife, Helen of Macedon, NY, Kay Stegich and her husband, Jeffery of Richardson, TX, Fred Bennett and his wife, Robyn of Salisbury Center, NY, Marie Travis of The Woodlands, TX, Daniel Bennett and his wife, Lisa of Little Falls, NY, Nancy Cizik and her husband, Paul of Casa Grande, AZ, Karen Zeller and her husband, Phil of VA, Edward Bennett and his wife, Denise of Syracuse, NY; nineteen granchildren, Matthew, Emily, Ethan, Brooke, Christina, David, Laura, Eric, Lauren, Daniel, Morgan, Luke, Ryan, B. James, Chase, Scott, Brianne, Alissa, and Michael and their families; two cherished great-granddaughters, Claire and Grace; a brother, Francis Brucker and his wife, June of Herkimer; and several nieces and nephews.


Alice was predeceased by one brother, Edward Brucker.
