February 29, 1964 – January 8, 2020

After a courageous and graceful battle it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Regelaine “Grammy” Watson on January 8, 2020 at the age of 55.

She will be lovingly remembered by her parents Valeraine and Andre Benoit, daughters Demara (Scott) and Kaelie, sons Kody, Lukas and Darian, granddaughters Avrie and Adaline, sister Angel (Ian), and nephew Tim (Alanna) and many extended family and friends.

Regelaine worked in childcare for 35+ years and treated these children as her own. She was a beautiful soul and touched so many people in a loving and positive way – we hope everyone who knew her, whether for a little while or a long time, realizes what a privilege it was.

  1. I am so sorry to hear of Reg’s passing. I remember her friendship fondly when my daughter and Kailie went to preschool together. She was an amazing mother to all her children. My condolences to all her family and may she Rest In Peace.

  2. Reg you will be so missed. You were a beautiful girl with a big heart. Your dedication to children and family values were very special. You always cared so much for others and just such a caring person, you never complained or thought about yourself…you were always more interested in how others were doing. So sad you won’t watch your beautiful granddaughters grow – you were so excited to have a new baby and so proud of how the other one was doing! The world has lost a beautiful soul much to soon! I will miss you lots. Rest In Peace my friend.

  3. I am in shock with a heavy heart to hear the passing of a good friend. Regelaine came into my life after the birth of our first son. Being a new mother and having to return to work after maternity leave, I found this loving angel to care for my child. She left such a profound imprint on this entire family.
    While I left work to raise my children, Regelaine and I remained friends. Whenever I would visit, there was always a buzz of activity and the voices of very happy children within a loving home.
    She would always be creating something for the children to eat or activities for them to do. Never an idle moment.
    She will truly be missed. Condolences to the entire Benoit and Watson family. From the Poulettes

  11. Reg and I met in grade one,50 yrs ago. She was upbeat,fun,accepting,caring and she LOVED children; her own,her granddaughters,the neighbours’ kids,day care kids,kids with disabilities,my kids,lake kids,etc.She enjoyed doing crafts with the kids, then painting a bathroom, while she made some oatmeal cookies and comforted a fussing toddler.My heart goes out to her family and friends and especially to her children and grandbabies. Reggie had the patience of Job, the heart of Jesus, and the arms of Mary. What an wonderful example of LOVE.
