Dot, as she was known, loved coming to the Island to visit her family and friends and enjoyed playing Bingo at the American Legion Hall in Vineyard Haven when she spent the whole summer two years ago.

Dot is survived by her loving family, son Gerald Benoit of Somerset, and from Oak Bluffs, daughter Patricia Law and her husband, Jesse “Jack”, beloved granddaughter Olivia B.L. Butler and her husband, Nicholas, and her two great-grandchildren, Delilah Ellen Butler and Archer Robert Butler, both of whom gave her overwhelming pleasure and pride.

Dot was predeceased by her husband Conrad L. Benoit and by her son Conrad W. Benoit.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in her name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
