My mother was Rochelle 'Chele' Benjamin who was a member of the 'Dena' Club with Dena Dribin for decades. They worked to keep the family engaged for many years. Dena and my mother were the last of a generation of wonderful people from my family. Hopefully Dena meets up with my mother at the next stop and continues the Dena Club tradition. Fond memories of a previous wonderful generation. May she rest in peace.

Aunt Dena was always a constant bright and happy presence in my life. She always attended my birthday parties and had the best smile. I associate memories of her with memories of my grandmother, Lois, which are always happy ones. I will miss her but I'm so grateful that I knew her.

Aunt Dena was technically not my aunt. She was a member of my extended family, but I considered her an aunt.
She was always a joy to see and talk with. Always a smile and always so vibrant. I will miss that positive energy she brought to a room.
