Kathleen Benedick Obituary

Kathleen Savannah Benedick was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, friend and teacher. She was equally brilliant, artistic, creative, and inquisitive. But above all else, she exuded love. She had a gift of truly caring about other people.

Adored by her family, Kathleen’s legacy of kindness and unconditional love is passed down to her children, Jennifer Benedick Milan, Jessica Benedick Webb, Michael Benedick and Rebecca Benedick Urlock, along with her son in laws, Timothy Milan, Rick Webb and Matt Urlock and most importantly her grandchildren, Timothy and Andrew Milan, Hannah and Doug Center, Jack, Abby and Emma Webb, and Charlie, Henry, Gertie and Maggie Urlock. Lovingly known as Mommom, she found her greatest happiness in times when she was with her children and grandchildren, hiking in the woods, relaxing on the beach, putting together puzzles, discussing history, and sharing stories.

Growing up in DC, the second oldest of seven siblings Bobby, Jimmy, Peggy, Billy, Tracy and Julie to parents Bill and June Savannah, Kathleen was known for being loving, compassionate, outgoing, adventurous and perhaps a bit bossy. This has been confirmed by her closest friends who all share these common traits, and come by it honestly as they have all answered to a calling in education.

Instilling a love of learning in everyone she met was her greatest gift. Earning her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Towson State University and going on to receive her MS in Math and Science Education and a Certificate of Technology Integration from Johns Hopkins University, she touched thousands of lives in the field of education. Students, staff, her children and grandchildren learned all they could about nature and history and science and her true love, math. Kathleen found joy in any and all opportunities to expand her knowledge and share that with others.

She will be remembered by family, friends and all who knew her for the sharpest of minds, her quick wit, her voracious love of reading, a chuckle that we hope to never forget but fear we will, and the greatest example of unconditional love this world has ever known. We ask that in her honor, please take every opportunity to spread love, offer help to others and live a life free of judgments.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, January 27, 2024 from 2-3pm  A memorial service is scheduled for 3 pm at Candle Light Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to one of the following charities on her behalf. Each of her children have chosen something that is close to their hearts.
