IN MEMORIAM: Mary Ann Benjamin, 90;

22-Year Teacher At Center Street School 

Mary Ann Benjamin

ONEONTA – Mary Ann (Georgeson) Benjamin’s life ended peacefully, surrounded by family at her residence on June 23, 2019.

Mary was born to Nicholas and Christina Georgeson on July 21, 1928, in Oneonta, and spent the first years of her life in Oneonta.

At age 5, while her father remained in America, Mary moved with her mother to her parents’ homeland of Zoupana, Greece, for a year. Believing a better life awaited his family in America, her father brought Mary and her mother back from Greece and the family moved to Norwich for a few years before settling back in Oneonta, where she spent the remainder of her life.
