Virginia ‘Chickie’ Dudley Bengtsson

Virginia “Chickie” Dudley Bengtsson passed away from complications of COVID-19 on January 12, 2021. She was 94 years old.
Born in Glendale, Chickie graduated from Hoover High School and attended Glendale College. In 1950, she married and settled down to begin a wonderful life with her family in Glenoaks Canyon.
Chickie was preceded in death by her husband, Charles “Chuck” Bengtsson, and her brother, Lee Dudley. She is survived by her younger sister, Geraldine Glidden and many beloved nieces and nephews along with wonderful life-long friends and neighbors.
Chickie is also survived by her children Chris Bengtsson (Sue), Stevie Goffredo (Johnny); grandchildren Tom Watson, Melissa Smith, Christopher Bengtsson, Allison Katz, Kristen Milano, Kimberly Tatman, Jimmy Goffredo and their wonderful spouses; great-grandchildren Kieley Hicks and Kasey Watson, Addie and Colton Smith, Juniper Bengtsson, Zoey Katz, Katie and Olivia Milano, Maegan, Noah, and Emerson Tatman, and John Goffredo.
She was smart, funny, caring … and her smile lit up the room! Nothing gave her more pleasure and happiness than time spent with her loving family. She will be greatly missed.
Because of COVID-19, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to The Salvation Army.
