It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beautiful mom on November 18th, 2022, at the Health Sciences Centre, at the age of 89 years. Mom is predeceased by her husband, the love of her life, Patrick J. Bishop (2002), her parents: Charles and Beatrice Butler, her siblings: Robert L. Butler and Ernest Butler, Edith Bishop (Herbert deceased), Gwenelyn Cluney (Melvin deceased) and sister in law: Violet Butler.
Leaving us with many wonderful memories are her daughters: Effie (Richard), Betty (Bruce) and son: Pat (Bonita), brother: Calvin Butler and sister in law: Martha Butler, grandchildren: Lisa (Sheldon), Krista, Patrick Jr. (Kristen) and Nicole, great-grandchildren: Whitney, Miles, Zoe, Johanna and Arabella.
Mom was an exceptional mother who dearly loved her family. She was a great cook, baker and craft person. She enjoyed all family occasions and going to the New Years Eve dance at the Legion and dancing with her honey (Richard). Mom enjoyed visiting the cabin. She had a great smile that would melt your heart and a wonderful sense of humor that brought smiles to many faces.
