Daisy Eloise Hinkle Benedict, 65 of Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away on January 15, 2023, surrounded by family, after fighting a short battle with cancer.  She was born to Henry Nolan and Gladys Hinkle on February 21, 1957, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

She is survived by her companion, Curtis Jaite; her sons, Dennis, Michael, Nolan (Amanda) Demaree of Indianapolis; her grandkids, Isabella, Abby (Pat Underwood), Phoebe, Tristan, Payton, Addison, Colton, Nolan, and Aniken Demaree, Katie (Ray) Circharo, Hannah, Joslyn and Abby Cleary, Jeremy (Jessica) Moss, and Tory (Brandon) Schultz; her great-grandkids, James and Dean Underwood, Zaylynn, Jace, Brice, and RosAaliya Moss, and Bently and Bayleigh Schultz; her siblings, Nolan LeRoy, Philip Hinkle Sr. (both of Indianapolis), Darlynda (Troy) Klingele (of Washington State), Deanna (Mark) Garnard (of Lebanon, Indiana), and Danita (Ted) Cichecki (of Illinois).
