With deep sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Christina “Tina” Bendig. On July 30, 2022, at the age of 76 God reached down and placed her in Ray’s loving arms. Tina and Ray were married on October 16, 1971 and are survived by their four children David (Stacey) Bendig, Michael (Kim) Bendig, Brian (Darcey) Bendig, and Carrie (Steve) Brush; her 8 grandchildren Cody, Taylor, Jayme, Shawn, Devan, Morgan, Eric & Kalista. Tina devoted her life to her family and faith. She took a very active role in her community, volunteering to serve St. Johns Parish, CWL, nursing homes, Food Hub and countless others. But most dear to her heart was the Kidney Foundation. Where there was need Tina was there giving of herself. She had a strong faith and connection to God; her prayers and actions blessed all who knew and encountered her. Her spirit, enthusiasm and smile will be missed by all. Special thanks to all of the nurses from Home Instead and her friends who made her final weeks at home possible. In lieu of flowers, she asked that all donations be made to the Kidney Foundation. Tina is resting at the Kennedy Funeral Home Ltd. (519-776-7378) 128 Talbot St. North, Essex on Wednesday, and Thursday from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. CWL Prayers Thursday at 7 p.m. On Friday, friends are invited to meet the family after 10 a.m. at St. John the Evangelist Church in Woodslee followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at St. John’s Cemetery.
