Margaret Ann Yordy Benton December 27, 1925 - November 28, 2018

Mother of three; grandmother ("Dearie") to six; and great-grandmother to five; Peg Benton lived life to its fullest, surrounded by the innumerable friends she made in the Sisters and Bend area, as well as the community of people whose lives she touched. But friendships didn't stop there: they radiated around the world to the many people she met while living in Germany and while traveling. She treasured every one, and took care of them all as best she could.

Her life began in West Carrollton, Ohio, the daughter of Dr. Paul L. Yordy and Margaret Elizabeth Whitehead Yordy. Subsequent moves took her to Dayton, San Diego, back to the University of Wisconsin, Cincinnati, Germany, and back to Cincinnati before she and her husband, Ed, decided to make Sisters their home after his retirement from Proctor and Gamble.

Here she played a mean game of bridge, hiked with friends, skied with her family until she was 75, and at 90 went skydiving with her daughter, much to her doctor's chagrin - Dr. Joe Bachtold was more than just her doctor, he was a friend who cared and shared her adventures.

After a short illness, she died on her own terms and cared for at home, looking out over the Indian Ford Creek Meadow that she loved.

Family and friends will gather in the spring to celebrate her life.

Donations can be made in her honor to Partners in Care of Bend, www.partnersbend.org, or Deschutes Land Trust www.deschuteslandtrust.org.
