- Janelle Benson
Janelle has been an avid friend, supporter and volunteer of PCH for 16 years. Following the passing of her husband, Jack at PCH in 2002, Janelle joined our Golf Committee and was the Top Gun Winner many times, raising the most funds and always recruiting numerous golfers. She has also supported our Gala and been a great resource and thought leader. Her passion for our mission stems from her caregiving of her husband, mother and youngest son.
While Janelle’s physically handicapped son was in school, she was involved in wheelchair sports and organized the first booster club for wheelchair sports in DeKalb County. Janelle is a very active member of Parkway Baptist Church where she has served as a deacon and on many committees.
Tony is Post Care Services Director for Crowell Brothers Funeral Home. He has over 25 years of funeral care experience, helping families navigate the business side of loss. Tony has been a long-time friend and supporter of PCH, helping with both the annual Gala and Golf Classic, as well as providing funding and resources for other PCH special events.
An expert in business matters, he conducts seminars with veterans to help them receive benefits to which they are entitled, as well as leading workshops for Social Workers and Certified Nursing Assistants. Tony is an honorary member of the Gwinnett County Veterans Museum and Quilts of Valor Committees, and a Past President and Board member of the Monroe Rotary Club. He served two terms as a Board member for the Walton County Chamber of Commerce and is an Executive member of the Walton County Veterans Memorial.
