“Sorority Honors Sister Benson,” Ensign, May 1986, 107
Sister Flora Benson, wife of President Ezra Taft Benson, has been honored as Lambda Delta Sigma Woman of the Year.
She received the award from the LDS sorority at its annual women’s conference, held at the University of Utah Institute of Religion during the last week of February. Some three hundred young women, from nine chapters of the sorority, attended the presentation.
The students paid tribute to Sister Benson for her spiritual qualities, her strength as a wife and mother, and her many other achievements.
President Benson’s own words were used in introducing his wife to the group: “She has instilled in all her children a strong testimony of the gospel, and to me she has always been a constant inspiration.”
