James Mann Bennett

June 24, 1991

James Mann Bennett, 69, a retired carpenter, died Thursday of respiratory failure at Carroll County General Hospital.

Services were to be held today at the Bounds Funeral Home in Salisbury.

Mr. Bennett, of Upperco, lived most of his life in Mardela Springs, where he was born, and graduated from Mardela High School. He worked as a self-employed carpenter, building cabinets and furniture, and he worked on home remodeling projects on the Eastern Shore.

He moved to Upperco seven years ago when he married Edna Mae Lowe. An early marriage to Grace Budd ended in divorce.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by five daughters, Charlotte B. Litchford of Delmar, Brenda B. Raleigh of Millington, Bonnie B. Miller of Redondo Beach, Calif., and Beverly B. French and Sherry B. Shores, both of Salisbury; a son, Donald J. Bennett of Salisbury; two stepchildren, Wesley Mitchell and Joy M. Shirley, both of Delmar; his mother, Julia Phillips Bennett of Mardela; and a sister, Martha B. Owens of Fruitland.

The family suggests that memorial donations be made to the American Lung Association.
