Lisa Helen Bennice

May 13, 1960 – January 10, 2013

Middletown NY

Lisa Helen Bennice, a Registered Nurse for Hudson Valley D.D.S.O., passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2013, at Orange Regional Medical Center following a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 52 years old.

The daughter of Joan Downey Biernacki and the late Frank Biernacki, Lisa was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 13, 1960. She married Carl Bennice on April 16, 1983 and together they established a life in Middletown, NY, devoted to raising their children and spoiling Minnie, Lisa’s beloved Shi-Poo. Lisa was an active and faithful member of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Middletown, NY, and an active member of her community.

Lisa will be fondly remembered as an extraordinarily loving, caring, funny, and compassionate woman who had the ability to make friends wherever she went and whose smile could light even the darkest room. She was a true fighter and her strength will continue to be a source of inspiration for the many lives she touched. Lisa’s world revolved around the unconditional and unwavering love she had for her family. She was the ultimate mom, not only to her own children, but also to the numerous children she “adopted” as her own. Lisa’s door was always open to offer advice, a hot meal, warm hug, or shoulder to cry on. Lisa truly found her calling advocating and caring for the disabled; she loved her “guys”.

In addition to her husband, Carl, and her mother, Joan; Lisa is survived by her loving children, Matthew, Portia, Jennifer, and Michelle Bennice. She is also survived by a large extended family and her vast adopted family.
