Virginia Mary Butler

October 3, 1955 - July 7, 2016


Devoted friend, naturopath and nurse, Virginia Mary Butler died peacefully in her home on July 7, 2016, with her dear partner and friend by her side. Virginia was born on October 3, 1955, in Claresholm, Alberta, to Keat and Mary Butler.

She leaves behind her siblings Milo (Jackie: deceased) Butler, Bryce (Judi: deceased) Butler, Rosella (Francis) Self and Carol (David) Boyle, many dear nieces and nephews and her long-time partner and friend Rob (Robbie) Richards.

Virginia enriched the lives of many, enjoyed travelling and was happiest at home surrounded by her garden. She was Mother Earth, with a nursing background, and viewed her illness as a challenge she dedicated herself to. Her mantra was ‘the universe is unfolding exactly as it should.’

She is gone from our sight, but her spirit lives on in those of us fortunate to have been enriched by her uniqueness.

A celebration of life will be held in her garden at 6836 Alberni Street from 2-5 pm on Sunday, August 14.

From: Alyson Anderson
Relation: Niece

I thought I saw her face today
In the sparkle of the morning sun.
And then I heard the angel say,
“Her work on earth is done.”

I thought I heard her voice today
Then laugh her hearty laugh.
And then I heard the angel say,
“There’s peace little one at last.”

I thought I felt her touch today
In the breeze that rustled by.
And then I heard the angel say,
“The spirit never dies.”

I thought that she had left me
For the stars so far above.
And then I heard the angel say,
“She left you with her love.”

I thought that I would miss her
And never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say,
“She’s with you every day.”

Relation: friend

this is a very sad day I always thought we would see each other again.You are gone way to soon.I will remember you as the fun loving strong independent women free spirit that you were.

From: Milo W. Butler
Relation: Virginia is my younger Sister.

What is this thing that men call death.
This quiet passing in the night.
It is not the end, but Genesis,
Of better worlds and greater light.

Oh, God touch thow my broken heart
And calm my troubled haunting fears.
Let hope and faith transcendant pure,
Give strengh and peace, beyond my tears.

There is no death but only change,
With recompense for victory won.
The gift of him who loved all men,
The Son of God, the Holy one.
