In the early years of her life, she moved to the Clark, SD, area where she grew up working on the family farm. In 1942, Winnie married Robert Benson in Clark, SD. In 1947, she married Claire Fisk, Sr. in Montevideo, MN. She was employed at businesses throughout our community…some no longer exist. Her final employment was with Quadee Rubber which was 25+ years. She was a member of Hosanna Lutheran Church in Watertown. She could be seen playing Bingo with her friends and was a good pinochle player. In addition, she loved to work puzzles in her later years. Mother did it “her way” as she lived in her home with her companion dog, Sassy, until her final moments. Her goal was to reach 100 years of life and she attained that goal in April 2022. She loved her family. It was always a happy time when her home was filled with family members, especially when the grandkids came to visit. Winnie is survived by four sons: Earl Benson of Watertown, SD, Roy Benson (Maxine) of Odessa, TX, Claire Fisk, Jr. (Tammy) of Huntsville, AR, and David Fisk (Joan) of Piedmont, SD; one daughter, Debra Bishop (friend, Alan) of Arvada, CO; three brothers: Roger Page of Buffalo, SD, Allen Page of Newell, SD, and Leslie Page of Newell, SD; 12 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; her companion, Sassy; and her special friends: John and Sue Schwandt, Doug and Sandy Malone and Mary Fisk. She was preceded in death by her husband, Claire Fisk, Sr.; her son, Roger Benson; her great-grandson, Christian Fisk-Goranson; her parents, William and Flora Page; six sisters: Pearl, Doll, Myrtle, Elvina, Ada and Ruby; two brothers, Ernest and Willis; her daughter-in-law, Sandy Benson; her granddaughter, Sonya Benson; and several nephews. May the lessons a loving mother taught us and the many memories we have from 100 years of life God gave to her be with us from this day forth. Arrangements by Crawford-Osthus Funeral Chapel.
