Anna A. Bensley

Anna A. Bensley, 96, of Medina entered into rest peacefully on December 14, 2020 at the Martin-Linsin Hospice Residence in Albion.

Born November 12, 1924 in Middleport, she was a daughter of the late Julius and Rose (Kontos) Wasvary. She was a longtime parishioner of Holy Trinity Parish, St. Mary’s Church in Medina. She was known to be a quiet and humble person. Anna loved taking her children on local field trips and adventures, like seeing Santa at Christmas Park. She was a frequent visitor to the library, bringing her children to read and experience the world. Anna loved music, was an avid reader, a wonderful gardener and enjoyed taking care of her various animals. Her love of nature took her down the Erie Canal for walks with the family dog. She was a dessert enthusiast, never turning down sweets and was known to enjoy a taste of chocolate daily.

Predeceased by her husband, Robert J. Bensley in 2001; beloved brothers and sisters in-law, Walter, Gerald, Raymond, Donald, Phyllis and Mary; her cherished siblings, William Wasvary, Lillian (Robert) Hayden and Mary Ellen (Robert) Spaulding.
