Obituary for Michelle L. Butler

On Sunday June 18, 2023 the most beautiful soul Michelle L Butler passed on from this experience peacefully in her sleep. Michelle was caring, funny, affectionate with a huge heart and infectious smile. Michelle was a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and dedicated her life to being a great mother. She was a people person and loved greeting new people and making them laugh and smile. Michelle had a passion for arts and crafts, movies, music,cooking and baking. Her brownies, cakes, and goodies have been a go to choice for family events for decades. Michelle’s warm heart and motherly soul can not be summed up in a few words. There’s nothing that can be said that can capture what a great person she was. She existed, she loved, she was a great person, she was enough! We loved her and will forever miss her. Her energy, smile and love will never be forgotten.

We will eternally love you Michelle.
