Mrs. Benton was born on July 31, 1954, in Orangeburg, S.C. She was the daughter of the late George Thomas and the late Helen Carson Thomas. She was a beautician for over 20 years at First Lady in Orangeburg where she would “make you beautiful.” She was a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church and enjoyed singing gospel music. “Moma Pat” as she was affectionately known as never met a stranger. Her smile and her laugh would light up the room. Her family was her life. She loved being a wife, mother and “Nana.” To know her was to love her.
Survivors include her husband of 51 years, Fred Benton of the home; daughter, April Benton Cole (Nick) of Cordova; grandson, Thomas Cole of Cordova; sister, Phyllis Davis of Orangeburg; best friends, Judy Martin and Grace King and a number of nieces, nephews and additional family and friends.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Blair Becker, Rev. David Royster and the staff of Edisto Home Care and Hospice for their love, support and care of “Moma Pat.”
Friends may call or come by the residence.
