She did not want her husband to leave for World War II, and was devastated when she received a letter informing her of his death. John Benton saw her crying and told her not to worry, saying he would look after her and just be like his father. (HOMEVID: Wartime)

- John Benton's sister is not seen or mentioned in Wartime, so it is perhaps best left to personal preference as to whether Mrs. Benton was pregnant at the time of her husband's death or she remarried at some point afterwards.
