Memorable Manitobans: Joseph Alphonse Hudon (1886-1918)
Born in Quebec in September 1886, he had come to Manitoba by late 1910 and was working as an architect, with an office in the Builders’ Exchange Building at 333½ Portage Avenue, Winnipeg. He and wife Mina Janelle lived at 95 Notre Dame Street in St. Boniface and, by 1916, had three children: Joseph Leo Hudon (1911-?), Irene Hudon (1913-1920), and Cecile Hudon (1915-?). He died at St. Boniface on 10 November 1918, possibly of the Spanish flu, and was buried in the St. Boniface Cemetery.
