Evelyn Rae Benson was born on March 3, 2022, in Morris, Minnesota, the precious babe to Nickolas Benson and Anna Dembroski.  Evelyn was a ray of light to everyone who was lucky enough to know her.  She was passionate, intelligent, beautiful, and perfect in every way!  She loved playing outside and loved all animals, her favorite being cats.  Evelyn found joy in music – she would bop up and down and spin around to the beat.  She especially enjoyed Mickey Mouse and the beauty and smell of flowers. She loved her Mom and Dad, and was always excited when she got to see her Grandmas and Papas. Evelyn was comforted by many snuggles and was always willing to share hugs and kisses! 

Evelyn died on Thursday, August 24, 2023; she lived one year, five months, and 21 days.

Evelyn is lovingly remembered by her parents: Nick and Anna of Morris; grandparents: Jeff Dembroski of Superior, WI, Stephanie (Milo) Sanchez of Morris, and Jeanine (Randy Pieske) Benson of Hancock; great-grandparents: Allen (Sue) Benson of Hancock, Theora VerSteeg of Hancock, John Dembroski of Superior, WI, Tina Dembroski of Superior, WI, and Nancy Houghtalin of Hasting, MI; aunts and uncles: Alexis Benson of Mankato, John Dembroski of Morris, Josh Dembroski of Duluth, Mij Buran of Morris, Mariano Sanchez of Morris, Reyes Sanchez of Morris, Marie Pieske of Morris, Jon (Lily) Pieske of Morris, and Andrew Pieske of Hancock; cousins: Jaxon Dembroski of Morris, Hazel Dembroski of Duluth, Tyson Thole, Anna, Zoey and Mason Higgins and Scarlett Pieske; great-aunts and great-uncles: Tim VerSteeg of Benson, Renee Benson of Hancock, and Lee Houghtalin of MI; and many other great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, and extended family.
