Jana (Benson) Warecki, 67, of Rochester passed away January 22, 2013 in the comfort of her home, surrounded by the love of her family. While her body could not keep up with the cancer, it never touched her strength, spirit or heart.

Born in Long Beach, CA, the daughter of the late Wayne and Alpha (Lockmiller) Benson, she resided in the SouthCoast area since 1969.
Mrs. Warecki recently retired from Family Services in Fall River, MA, where she spent 15 years helping therapists make a difference in the lives of children in need.
She was an animal lover who enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, needlepoint nights, scrap booking, sewing and spoiling her grandchildren.
Survivors include her devoted husband, William Warecki; four loving children, Christine Warecki, Cynthia (Warecki) Rock, Mark Warecki and Brian Warecki; a brother, Norman Benson; and six grandchildren, Nathan, Reagan, Ella, Braden, Matthew and Gavin, who loved their Nana.
