In Loving

Dana L. Butler

October 25, 1951 – November 1, 2021

Dana L. Butler passed away November 1, 2021. She was preceded in death by her mother, Janeth Faison Butler. She is survived by her loving sister, Lindsay B.

Hetrick of Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  She will be deeply missed by her friends and family.

    You will be missed by all who knew you, Dana. The “girls” lunches & trips to Williamsburg will never be the same without you. You will be in my heart forever.

    I am so fortunate to have had you in my life and to call you friend. Who will be “the girl’s” secretary and remind us of our luncheons. I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to give you the beach painting. When I’m at the beach or see pictures of the beach, I will think of you. I do and will miss you. Rest In Peace, my friend. Patsy
