During this time, Benadene met her future loving husband William “Bill” Snyder and they united in marriage on December 4th, 1965 at the Little Brown Church in the Vale located in Nashua, Iowa. Benadene moved to Sanborn, Iowa with Bill to begin their family and had two loving daughters. In 1976, Bill and Benadene moved their family to Mandan, ND when Bill accepted new employment. Benadene continued to create a loving and warm home for her family and in 1986, they again moved for another employment opportunity which brought them to Fargo, ND. Benadene spent 53 wonderful years married to Bill and together they raised their two daughters.
