In Loving Memory Of
Diane Benoit
1949 ~ 2024

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Diane (Gautreau) Benoit of Moncton, which occurred on Monday, March 11, 2024 at the Dr.-G.-L.-Dumont University Hospital Center.

Born May 2, 1949 in Moncton, Diane was the eldest daughter of the late Tilmon and the late Rachel (Bergeron) Gautreau.

She leaves to mourn her husband of 52 years, Paul-Émile Benoit, and her three sons: Simon from Fredericton, Martin (Katriya) from Gatineau and Guillaume from Jasper. She will be greatly missed by her grandson, Francis; her sisters: Hélène (Jean-Yves Daigle) from Shippagan and Claire from Moncton; her brothers: Louis and Marc (Tammy Ring), both of Saint-Antoine; as well as her cousins, her numerous nieces and nephews, her in-laws and friends.

After her high school studies at Collège Notre-Dame d’Acadie, Diane obtained her nursing diploma in 1970 from the Nursing School of the Dr.-G.-L.-Dumont Hospital. She worked full and part time at the Dumont Hospital, in a pediatrician’s office, in public hygiene in Bathurst, and then at Addiction Services in Moncton.

Always full of enthusiasm, with an easy smile, her love for life was contagious. She had developed a passion for the culinary art passed down from her mother, and greatly enjoyed reading. Welcoming and authentic, she always kept her simplicity and was interested in others with respect and sensitivity. Both open-minded and down-to-earth, she did not hesitate to help people and provide kind advice. Endearing, she was a light for those around her and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

The family would like to express their deep gratitude to the staff of the Dr.-G.-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre, particularly at the Breast Center.

Visits will take place at the Passage-Chartersville Funeral Cooperative in Dieppe (363, rue Amirault, 506 857-1901) on Friday, March 15 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m., followed by a celebration of her life at 3:30 p.m. and a reception.

  10. I just learned today of Diane’s passing via the times transcript “thank you” the family posted. I’m so sorry I missed this last month. I was Dianes aesthetician for several years. I adored our visits and was very fond of Diane. I loved how she spoke with such adoration for all her family. I retired last July and at her last appointment with me she spoke of her health. When I called her later in the summer she remained positive and hopeful. I am saddened and so profoundly sorry for your loss. She loved you all so much and there is no doubt she is missed deeply. Sincerely k
