Isabel Benkert Daly '37

Isabel Benkert Daly '37, who graduated with an honors math degree and worked as an actuary and a homemaker, died Sept. 22, 2017.

Daughter Florence Battis Mini ’68 wrote: “My mother raised the four of us, took care of her aging father, ran the household, and folded my older half sister happily into the rest of the family, all with every appearance of serenity. She also volunteered at church, led a Girl Scout troop, learned to identify every tree in North America (or so it seemed), and earned an MLS. She always could give someone a ride; friends were always welcome for dinner or to stay the night.”
