Hally was born on December 9, 1926, to Samuel Robert Stephens and Velmar May Bowman Stephens, in Ash Flat, Sharp County, Arkansas.

In addition to her beloved Kenneth, Hally is preceded in death by her son, Charles Robert Benedict, and grandson Aaron. She is survived by her children, Eric and Louise Benedict of Independence, Missouri, Ronald and Carmen Benedict of Sierra Vista, Arizona, and Susan and Robert Farrar of Southaven, Mississippi. Also surviving are five grandchildren, four great grandchildren, a brother and two sisters.
