Dorothy Butler

July 28, 1936 ~ May 3, 2020 (age 83)


Dorothy May Butler, 83, passed away peacefully Sunday, May 3, 2020 following a year long illness. She was preceded in death by her husband Amos Butler. She is survived by her sons George, Steve, and David (Ronda); her daughter Laura (Frank); six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Born July 28,1936 in Tulare, California. She was a resident of Watsonville, California where she worked as a tax preparer, Avon lady, and babysitter for many. Her love of the Lord led her to be a lifelong member of the Church of the Nazarene where she joined the church choir, served as missionary president, and was a favorite Sunday school teacher. She loved her family and was always there to help others. She was loved by the neighborhood, the kids knew where they could get the best treats and her yard sales were a weekly tradition.

She had a special presence and an ability to change the lives of those she met. She will be missed by family, friends, and the entire Watsonville community.

Private family graveside services will be held this week and there will be a celebration of life at a later date. Interment will take place at Pajaro Valley Memorial Park.
