Ms. Ida “Lil' One” Benton

April 25, 1967 ~ June 6, 2022 (age 55)


“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”

                                                                                                      Psalms 30:5

Ida Lou Benton, affectionately known as “Lil' One” was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, etc. She departed this earthly home on June 6, 2022, at her residence. Ida Lou Benton was born on Tuesday, April 25, 1967, to the late Lucy Mae Berry and the late Arthur Daniel Benton in Atlanta, Georgia.

She attended Warren County School System. “Lil' One” was full of fun, outgoing and always loving. Anyone who knew her, knew that she loved to joke around and dance. She was always the life of the party. Ida loved to listen to music, dressing up, and doing her make up. You would never catch her without her hair done. As she would always say “Make It Do What It Do”. Her affectionate spirit that lit up around the area will be truly missed by all who knew her well.

She was preceded in death by her parents the late Lucy Mae Berry and Arthur Daniel Benton; granddaughter, Sha'Niyah Drake; three uncles, Farris Berry, Willie Berry and Eddie Berry, Sr.

She leaves to cherish her precious memories: a daughter, Cametta Ivey of Warrenton, GA; two grandsons, San'Tavious Drake and Javian Bundrage, both of Warrenton, GA; one brother, Arthur Lee (Cynthia) Benton of Thomson, GA; two sisters, Betty Reese of Thomson, GA, and Julie (Butch) Ficklin of Warrenton, GA; two aunts, Susie Kate Nelson of Warrenton, GA, and Doris Bell of Sparta, GA; three uncles, Johnny Berry of Warrenton, GA, Charlie Benton and Leon Benton, both of Atlanta, GA; a loving nephew whom she reared as her own, Marcus Berry of Warrenton, GA; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
