Obituary for Dorothy Bender

Dorothy Bender, age 97 of Berkley, MI and previously of Huntington Woods, MI passed away peacefully on June 11, 2018 in her home. She was born on June 13, 1920 in Barrow-in-Furness, England to the late Ellen and William Bentley.
Mrs. Bender came to the United States with her parents as an only child at the age of three. She was raised in Highland Park, MI and attended the High School of Commerce in Highland Park and also attended college courses while being employed as a Secretary in the Steel Industry. Mrs. Bender met her beloved husband, Joseph, while working at a steel company and soon moved to Huntington Woods in 1948 to raise their two children. After 42 years in Huntington Woods and the death of her husband in 1982, she moved to Berkley in 1990. Dorothy enjoyed traveling, bingo, and playing bridge with friends and family. She showed tremendous courage when she took a hot air balloon ride during a senior group trip. Most of all, she will be remembered for her love and concern for her family and friends.
Dorothy is survived by her son, Craig (Patricia) Bender; daughter, Mary Ellen Bender and her granddaughter, Kelli Bender.
Private cremation has taken place with Sawyer-Fuller Funeral Home. A memorial will take place at a later date.
