Obituary

Davona Ruth Benzel, 61, Joliet, Mt, formerly of Woodstock, GA, Pagosa Springs, CO, and Hardin, MT, passed away on August 22, 2019 after battling cancer. She was born March 23, 1958 in Cody, WY to George and Luree Dutton.
Davona will be greatly missed by all those whose lives she touched, and her love was spread all around her. She loved BIG and LOUD and brought sunshine to everyone she knew. Davona never met a stranger and would stop anyone with a baby to coo and chat with them. She gave so much of herself to others with her kind words, her smile, her laughter, her worrying and her prayer. She would fight alongside of you, hold your hand and pray hard for any situation whether knowing you or not. Her enthusiastic joy for life was spread far and wide. The world is a slightly grayer place without her vibrant light.
Davona is survived by her mother Luree Dutton, son Damon Benzel, Daughters Stephanie (Matt) Portman, Sara Benzel, her grandchildren Kellen, Quinn and Sorren. She is also survived by sisters Lurene (Robert) Williams and Georgene (Charles) Williams. She also has many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews that she loved dearly. She is preceded in death by her father George Dutton and brother Elwood “Woody” Dutton.
The funeral will be held Thursday, August 29th at 10AM at the Smith Funeral Chapel, 315 East 3rd Street, Laurel MT. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Frontier Cancer Center, 1315 Golden Valley Circle, Billings, MT 59102.

I am so sorry to hear of Davona's passing. She was a kind lady and was so good to me in many ways. She was Jaron's first baby sitter. Im not sure what I would of done without her help. And what an awesome neighbor to us. I so appreciated her friendship. She was an very dedicated 4-H mom and so good to the 4-H kids. I remember how hard she worked on the 4-H fair concessions. She was loved at the Hardin Primary School as well. She made a positive difference in all the lives she touched. I pray that the Lord wraps his arms around you all and gives you peace, strength and comfort. Nancy Shumway

I knew her when we were both a lot younger, and I loved her generous spirit then. She is one person I always think of even today when I read about or think about the word compassion and what it means.
