Obituary for Marlene and Gordon Benn

Marlene and Gordon Benn were a devoted and loving couple from Fort Saskatchewan, AB, married for 54 years, who passed away within days of one another. Marlene died unexpectedly but quietly at home on November 6, 2019, and Gordon passed away in hospital on November 8, 2019. They were both 78 years old. Their family takes comfort that neither suffered for long the loneliness of grief, and in knowing their love truly was eternal.
Marlene and Gordon Benn are survived by three daughters, Carmen Benn of Edmonton, AB, Krista Gifford of Las Vegas, NV, and Lesley Benn (Adam Perry) of Washington, DC; and their grandson, Milo Perry, who has promised to cheer occasionally for the Toronto Maple Leafs in honour of his Grandpa Gord. They are also survived by two beautiful black Labrador Retrievers, Emmy Lou and Herbie, whom Marlene and Gord loved as family.
Marlene is survived by her eldest sister, Lorraine (Wallace) Good of Maple Creek, SK; and by her sister-in-law, Sylvia Schultz of Calgary, AB. They also leave behind many cherished nieces, nephews and cousins.
Marlene was a dedicated elementary school teacher for more than 30 years. She will be remembered for her commitment to education, her love of her black labs, and her legendary apple pie. Gord joined the R.C.M.P. in 1962, eventually retiring as a Staff Sergeant in K-division in Edmonton 34 years later. Gord had a great love of the outdoors and was a long-time supporter of Ducks Unlimited. He spent many seasons duck hunting in Alberta, and salmon fishing in British Columbia.
After retirement, Gord and Marlene pursued their passion for field trial and Retriever competitions, becoming founding members of the Wild Rose Retriever Club, training (and loving) seven black Labrador retrievers over the course of their marriage, forming lifetime friendships in the field trialing community, and serving as valuable ambassadors to the sport.
A Funeral Service will be held Friday, November 15 at 11:00 a.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 27, 9964 – 93 Avenue, Fort Saskatchewan, AB. Interment in Fort Saskatchewan Municipal Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Gordon and Marlene to the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital Foundation, Room 1C, 012 9401 – 86 Avenue, Fort Saskatchewan, AB, T8L 0C6; or to Ducks Unlimited Canada, P.O. Box, 1160 Stonewall, MB, R0C 2Z0.
