Memorable Manitobans: Irene Benoit Lane (?-?)

Museum curator.

A crusader for the restoration and preservation of Manitoba’s French-Canadian heritage, her efforts resulted in the restoration of the Grey Nuns residence in St.  Boniface and its establishment in 1967 as the St. Boniface Museum, for which she was its first curator. She also served for the Red Cross, Community Chest, Patriotic Salvage Corps, and Le Cercle Molière. In 1965, in recognition of her exemplary community service, she was given a Good Citizenship Award.
