Dennis W. Beenken
Dennis Wayne Beenken was called home to heaven to take his place amongst the angels on May 31, 2017 at the Clarion Wellness and Rehabilitation Center.
Dennis was born August 20, 1952 in Clarion to Marie Williams Beenken and Donald Jr. Beenken. Dennis grew up in Clarion, graduating in 1971. He moved to Des Moines, working at Mercy Hospital, later residing in Carlisle. Three years ago, declining health brought Dennis back to Clarion, where he was closer to family and friends.
Dennis is survived by his siblings Marilyn (Karl) Olsen of Clarion, Robert Beenken of Clarion, and David Beenken of Kanawha; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.
The Clarion Wellness and Rehabilitation Center truly became his home and the staff his family. They often commented about how he was always “happy.” Dennis touched their hearts. Remember, we all make a difference in someone’s life!
There will be a celebration of Dennis’ life Saturday, June 10. 2017 at 4:00pm at 602 South Main, Clarion. Please come share and reminisce with us.
Dennis is preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, aunt and uncles, cousins, and friends.
Thank you to everyone who went to visit and be a part of his life while he was here in Clarion.
