Kathleen F. Benner


Mrs. Kathleen “Kae” F. Benner, 84, passed away Monday, Oct. 10, 2022, peacefully at her home. She was born in Syracuse, N.Y., to John B. Foley Jr. and Oneita (Hotaling) Foley.
Kae was a military wife for much of her life and made home in various locations, but her heart was always in the Southwest.  After being widowed at age 40, she returned to college and received her degree in education from Southern Utah State College.  She loved teaching at Pine View High School in St. George, Utah, for 10 years.
Kae is survived by her daughters Linda Holmes (William) and Maribeth Kirkbride (William); son-in-law, Jerry Queen; niece, Lynn French (Jim); grandchildren, Shannon, Billy, Meaghan, Brandon, Courtney, and Carol; and seven great-grandchildren.  She is predeceased by her parents, John and Oneita Foley; sister, Suzanne Brainard; husband, Robert T. Benner, Ret. Lt. Col. USAF; and daughter, Jerri Ann Queen. Kae is recently preceded in death by her life companion of 20 years, Raymond Dallago Jr., with whom she enjoyed golf, travel, fishing, and visits to the local casino.

Kae asked that there be no funeral or memorial service. Her request is simply that a “change of address” card be sent.
