Marie Benoite (Bennie) Girard

March 8, 1929 – September 17, 2013

Bennie Girard was a long-time resident of the Comox Valley, who died as a result of a fall in her home. Bennie was predeceased by her husband Paul in 2001 and her friend Lou Des Meules in 2003.

Bennie will be missed by friends; Collette, Victoria, Tasula, Alexa and Lo, as well as family in Québec and local families; the Des Meules and the Lalic’s (Alex and Jim and their families) and Suzanne Racine and her daughter Marie.

Known to many as “Mrs. Girard”, Bennie was respected and had a keen wit and a great sense of humour. She was an engaging and articulate person with a quick smile. She will also be missed greatly by her other family at “Chances”. “She also loved fast cars!”

No service by request. Informal interment at the niche wall, Courtenay Civic Cemetery on Monday Nov. 4, 2013 at 3:00pm, followed by refreshments at “Chances” in the café.
