Ada Grace Bennett was born June 8, 1923, in Lorimor, Iowa, the daughter of Horace and Ethel (Masters) Carter.
On Aug. 25, 1946, she was united in marriage to Elmer Lloyd Bennett at Fort Des Moines. The couple lived in Knoxville most of their married lives. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
