Benita was born in Acri Cosenza, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1965 with her husband, Pietrangelo, and their three children. With a young family to take care of, Benita and Pietrangelo took great pride in working extremely hard to provide for their family.

Benita was predeceased by her beloved husband Pietrangelo Conforti; her father Salvatore Luigi Fusaro; and her mother, Mariantonia Gradilone.
