With mixed emotions and broken hearts, the management Eddie & Jackie Nelson and the Support Staff of Nelson’s Funeral Home sympathetically announce the passing of Mrs. Katie “Mondell” Bennett 80, of Camden, South Carolina.

Mrs. Bennett transitioned into eternity late Wednesday night November 4, 2020, at Kershaw Health Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Katie Mondell Bennett was born on May 4, 1940 to the late Mr. Richard Bennett, Sr. and Mrs. Gustavers Wood Bennett in Lugoff, SC.   She departed this earthly life on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at Kershaw Health in Camden, SC.

Katie attended The Wood School and later graduated from Jackson High School in the Class of 1958.  Katie relocated to Westchester, NY and she attended Westchester Community College where she studied X-Ray Technology.  After leaving Westchester Community College, she worked as an X-Ray Technician at New Rochelle Hospital and DOCS of Hartsdale New York.  Katie retired in 2006 and returned to Camden, SC.

In 1967, Katie married Dr. Lonnie G. Barnes and to this union, one daughter, Melanie, was born.

Katie overcame every obstacle that she encountered with dignity, courage and poise.   She loved to travel around the world.   She was self-less, generous, kind and loved God and her neighbor.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Melanie Barnes-Edwards; grandsons, Richard Barnes and Joshua Barnes-Edwards; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other loving relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by seven brothers, Odelle, Lathan, Richard, Jr., Lawrence, Roland, Freddie, and Paul Bennett; and five sisters, Bessie Glover, Josie Nelson, Annie Godbee, Ruby Arthur, and Lillie Bell Nelson.
