Mary C. Benoy, 79, of Middleton and formerly of Prairie du Chien, entered into Eternal Life on Monday, Oct. 7, 2019, at the UW-Madison Hospital and Clinics due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident. 

She was born on April 28, 1940, in Crawford County, the daughter of Charles and Evelyn (Garvey) Heisz. 

Mary enjoyed researching family genealogy, family history, spending time with her grandchildren, and gardening. Most all she took great pride in her devotion to her faith. As a faith-filled member of the Roman Catholic Church, she returned to college in 1983 to complete a degree in religion education at Viterbo College in La Crosse. She then obtained her master’s degree in theological studies at St. Norbert’s College in De Pere. After Ministering at several parishes in the Green Bay, La Crosse and Madison Dioceses, she retired to spend time with her family. Mary was currently a member of St. Francis of Assisi in Belleville. 

She is survived by her sons, Charles (Shirley) of New Glarus, Dale (Lori) of Portage, and Ed (Paula) Benoy of Harrisburg, N.C.; sisters, Irene (Wayne) Mitchell of Prairie du Chien, and Theresa (Steve) Wetter of Boscobel; sister-in-law; Mary Ann Heisz; 10 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; eight step-grandchildren; a foster-brother, Charles Coogan; a foster son, Roger Olson, and numerous nieces and nephews. Mary was a foster-mother to nine children. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; a son, John; daughters, Annie and Mary Benoy; a daughter-in-law, Teresa Dion-Benoy; brothers, Ivan and Francis Heisz; a sister-in-law, Patricia Kahler-Heisz; foster brother, William Green; and a grandson, Justin Benoy.

Funeral services will be held graveside on Friday, Oct. 25, at 3:30 p.m. at the St. Wenceslaus Cemetery in Eastman, with Reverend Rajan Anandan officiating, followed by a gathering and celebration of life in the church hall. The Garrity Funeral Home of Prairie du Chien is assisting the family.
