Mary Elizabeth (Ross) Butler

posted by Joshua Smith.

Mary Elizabeth Butler, age 80, was called home by the Lord on Sunday May 9th, 2021.

Mary was born February 9th, 1941 in Elba, NY to the late Charles and Violet Ross.

Mary is survived by her loving husband John Butler of 22 years, Charles Giummo; her son, Theresa Hume; her daughter; her grandchildren Alicia (Justin) Watson, Katrina (Joseph) Schultz, Erica (Dallas) Logsdon, Alex Carney, and Sebastian Carney; her sisters Thelma Welch and Carol Hoak; many great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews; she shared a special bond with her niece Elizabeth Welch.

She is predeceased by her parents; her brothers George Ross and Albert Ross; and her first husband Lawrence Giummo.

Mary loved spending time with her family and friends. She was the baby of her family and loved her siblings dearly. She was a social butterfly and loved to talk for as long as you would let her. She had a great sense of humor and made everyone laugh, the best part is she never knew just how funny she was. She was always honest and never compromised who she was. She had a beautiful, childlike spirit and did not believe in keeping secrets. She loved her country music and on summer days you could usually hear Conway Twitty singing out of her window. She was truly one of a kind.

Her loss leaves an unfillable void in the hearts of her family. She will be dearly missed, but comfort is found knowing that she is in Heaven. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 NIV

She will never be forgotten.

Family and friends are invited to attend Mary’s funeral service on Friday May 14th, 2021, at the Grace Baptist Church 238 Vine St. Batavia NY, 14020 beginning at 11am. She will be laid to rest at Middlebury Cemetery, Middlebury NY.

Arrangements for Mary were entrusted to the Bohm-Calarco-Smith Funeral Home, Batavia, (585) 343-5673.
