BENOIT, Anne Louise (Nan) 92, of South Surrey, BC. Passed peacefully January 3, 2017 during a short stay at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock. Born September 27, 1924 to George and Ellen-Mary Jones of Brighton, West Sussex England. Anne is survived by her husband of 70 years, Ovid, to whom she wed February 16, 1946 in The UK. Crossing aboard "Aquitania", Anne moved to Canada following Ovid's Canadian repatriation in 1946. They settled in Vancouver, BC to raise a family of three sons, by whom she is also survived. Nan is fondly remembered by numerous grand and great- grandchildren, and a litany of friends and relations from both Canada and the UK. No services will be held, except a family brunch January 9, 2017. Later this year Anne will return to England to be united with her favourite locale, the South Downs in Sussex. Always retaining her British charm (and feistiness) our Mum was an exemplary wife, homemaker, mother and community member. She was tirelessly committed to our successful lives, and we extend our eternal loving and devoted gratitude.
