Dianne Page Bench died on March 18, 2012 in Austin, Texas. She was preceded in death by her beloved son, Terry. She is survived by her husband, Brig General Herbert G. Bench, sons Scott, Tim and his wife, Cindy, Kevin and his wife, Sherice and by her grandchildren, Hollie, Ben, Danny, David, Kilby and Bailey. Dianne attended the University of North Carolina where she earned Phi Beta Kappa for academic excellence. Dianne was a tried and true Tar Heel every day of her life.

Dianne Page was born on July 6, 1924. She grew up during the Depression, raised a family and did all the normal things that a person in the Greatest Generation would do. Dianne, however, was far from normal. She had a truly wonderful mind and touched many lives with her combination of kindness and wit (and what a wit it was). Everyone who knew Dianne knew that spending time with her would involve lots of joy and laughter. The world will be a sadder place without her. Dianne had many loves: God, family, country, the Heels, pugs, Arnold Palmer, thrift shops and anyone who loved to smile. She was so very proud of her grandchildren who arc all great students and even better people.

The Bench family wants to sincerely thank everyone at the Summit at Lakeway and on the 6th floor at Seton Hospital for their tremendous care and compassion. In lieu of flowers or contributions, just hug your children—and BEAT DUKE!
