Born December 22, 1925 in Monroe, she was the daughter of the late Horace and Lettie (Welch) Wilcox. She married Theron Benore on June 5, 1948 in Monroe. Sadly, he preceded her in death on September 5, 1982.
Hope was a devoted Jehovah’s Witness, especially enjoying the Door-to-Door Ministry and Bible study. Even though she was not a big fan of watching television or reading, she loved surfing the web and playing games on her computer. Hope kept her mind sharp by playing cards and working Sudoku puzzles and enjoyed spending most of her time with her loving pet companion Molly.
Hope is survived by two children, David (Sharon) Benore and Diane (Gary) Bondy both of Monroe; and four grandchildren, David Bondy of Monroe, Lisa (Scott) Puse, David (Meghan) Benore of Wallkill, NY and Emily Bondy of Monroe.
She was preceded in death by her Parents and Husband.
Memorial contributions in her name may be made to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 5301 E. Albain Road, Monroe.
