Madelin Adelaide Law Benson
July 17, 1936 ~ October 31, 2012

Madelin, Mable, Muggsy, Mud or Granny, it didn’t matter what you called her, she loved you unconditionally. Granny was her favorite.

Our dear sweet mom returned home to hug her dad on October 31, 2012, just like she had always talked about. Family was everything to her and her entire life was dedicated to serving them as well as everyone she came in contact with. She would never leave anyone hungry. Over the years she baked more cookies than most professional bakers. She was a devoted wife and mother and deeply loved her men. She would joke with people that she lived with 7 of them.

Mom was born in Payson, Utah to Jordan Albert Law and Jessie Lutisha Clark Law and had great memories of her young childhood there. Around the age of 12 she moved to Garden Grove California. That is where she met her sweetheart, David. After falling head over heels in love, she waited for him while he served a mission. Her life of complete devoted service started on December 11, 1958, when they were married in the Los Angeles Temple. After marrying, she moved to Utah to start her new life and lived in Orem, Mapleton and St. George.

Mom’s entire life was devoted to service, starting with her family and church and then extending to everyone she met. She particularly loved serving in the Young Women’s program of the church. She would greet everyone with a smile and was always willing to help in any way she could. Anyone that knew her for more than a couple of days was the recipient of a meal or cookies.

She believed that every moment of life should be an adventure and loved to learn and discover new things. She got her first computer this last year and it opened up a whole new world for her. She loved to learn new things and was self taught in most things that she did in life. She was still working on a sculpture right up to her last days. She loved to create and could turn a paper bag, plastic spoon or old piece of wood into something grand. She loved making crafts and for many years had a craft business and would travel to fairs and boutiques, selling her crafts. Most of the money she earned was spent on her family, but from time to time she would find a yard of fabric for a couple of dollars and make a new dress.

She is survived by her Husband, David K Benson, her six boys Roland, Ron, Randy, Richard, Robert and Ryan along with her 6 daughter-in-laws Tami, Julie, Elaine, Delsi, Rina and Connie. And her favorite people, her 27 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, who lovingly called her Granny. She is also survived by 2 siblings, Jordan A Law and Ila Gills. She is preceded in death by her parents, 6 siblings and 2 grandchildren, whose lives she is adding joy to at this very moment.

She never wanted anyone to cry (or blubber) over her and always said life should be celebrated. So please only mourn her for a moment and then celebrate her life with all the great memories you have of her.

Graveside services will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 10:00 am in the Provo City Cemetery located at 610 South State Street Provo, Utah. Funeral Directors - Warenski Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, go splurge on yourself, that is what she would want.
