Betty J. Benishek, 72 of Findlay, passed away at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, December 20, 2019 at the Hospice Care Center in Findlay. Betty was born on February 3, 1947 in Arlington, Ohio to the late Ray and Sarah "Levon" (Kimmel) Wells. On August 1, 1971 Betty married David L. Benishek in Arlington, Ohio and David preceded her in death on May 12, 2015.
Surviving Betty are three sons, Tony L. (Karri) Benishek of Lewis Center, OH, Gregory S. Benishek of Upper Sandusky, OH and Kevin E.

Betty will also be missed by Zeus, her English Bulldog. Betty was preceded in death by two brothers, Ronnie and Bob Wells.
Betty attended Zion United Methodist Church near Benton Ridge. She was formerly employed at Ohio Bank as a loan processor. Her favorite hobby, "going out for a loaf of bread", resulted in an impressive collection of purses. Her family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Bridge Hospice and Natalie Oglesbee for their compassionate and tender care during Betty's last days.
