Memorable Manitobans: Francis H. Benoit (c1922-2000)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born in the Rural Municipality of Ste. Anne around 1922, son of John Benoit and Rose Paradis Beniot Barrette (c1899-1990), he took up the career of farming. He and his wife Marion (1937-2013) had two sons. Later in life, he served as Reeve of the RM of Ste. Anne (1979-1990), resigning on account of illness, with two years left on his last term. He died at the Ste. Anne Hospital on 26 August 2000 and was buried in the Green Acres Memorial Gardens.
