Carol Butler

Carol Butler of West Bend was born on Sept. 23, 1963, and born to eternal life on Dec. 15, 2022, at the age of 59 years old.

She is survived by her loving husband of over 39 years, Thomas Butler. She was the dear mother to Joseph (Sarah) Butler and Sarah Butler, grandmother to Aireanna and beloved daughter of Paul Fechter Jr. and Eva Fechter.

She is also survived by sister Jane Fechter and brothers Paulie Fechter, Bill Fechter, Kevin (Cion) Fechter and Brian Fechter and so many other relatives and friends.

As a partner and co-owner in the family businesses, she kept herself busy. She was Tom’s right-hand woman at Tom Butler Sales & Service, but most notably she was known in the community for Butler’s Fruits & Vegetables.

Her days changed with the seasons — planting seeds in spring, selling produce in summer, gathering the final harvest when the leaves changed color and looking forward to next spring when the long Wisconsin winter started to take hold. She did this while always providing a helping hand and smiling face at Tom’s shop.

Her smile followed her wherever she would go. Her spirit was genuine and kind. She will be missed dearly, and in our hearts forever.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022, at St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church, 1375 Covered Bridge Rd., Cedarburg, WI 53012, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at 1 p.m.

Burial to follow at St. Augustine Cemetery in West Bend.
