In Loving Memory of Annie Benedict
MARY THERESA BENEDICT “ANNIE”
1947 – 2021
It is with great sadness that the Singapore Association of Las Vegas Nevada
(SALVN) must announce the passing of Mary Theresa Benedict, affectionately
known as “Annie” to SALVN members past and present dating back to the
Singapore Association of Nevada (SAN) days of which she was an original
Annie was born in Singapore on July 5, 1947 and passed away on February 20,
2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. A graduate of the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus
Secondary School (CHIJ) in Singapore, Annie arrived in Las Vegas along with her
husband Benny, and her daughter Jennifer including her husband, Ronald and two
children. In 2000. Her eldest son, Jeffrey Benedict had preceded the arrival of the
extended family, having set up residence in Las Vegas in 1995. Another brother,
Jason, subsequently joined the family in Las Vegas at a later date.
Annie was always known to be friendly, personable and quick with a smile. An
avid basketball fan, Annie enjoyed attending her grandson Ryan’s games and
following her favorite professional team, the L.A Lakers. Annie derived much
pleasure from tending to her flower garden. SALVN members will undoubtedly
remember her outstanding cooking expertise as most have been treated through the
years to her delectable dishes, such as, Chicken Curry, Sayoh Lodeh, Rojak, Nasi
Lemak & Sambal at countless SALVN pot luck events. Annie was also known for
her caring attitude, especially as it pertained to her children and grandchildren and
even took on child care duties periodically for some of the SALVN members. In
recent months, following the death of her beloved husband, she became
particularly close to her sole surviving son Jason and his son Ryan with whom she
Annie was preceded in death by her loving husband Joseph “Benny” Benedict and
her son Jeffrey Jude Benedict. She is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Danker
and her husband Ronald, her son Jason and his wife Karen, along with
grandchildren Melissa & Vanessa Danker and Ryan Benedict.
May she rest in peace. She will be greatly missed.
