Noreen Kathryn Butler


With great sadness her family said goodbye to her on January 28th 2021.

She was born in Pittsburgh, PA to John and Mary Kocan on October 23rd 1942.  She married the love of her life Myron Butler on December 23rd 1967.

She passed away at her home in Edmond, Oklahoma surrounded by her family at 2 PM in the afternoon after battling Covid and being hospitalized for eight weeks.

During her 53 years of marriage she gave of herself continually to her family, her neighbors and strangers.  She had a heart for orphans, the elderly and the homeless.

She mourned the loss of her first-born child, John, in June of 2020. She is survived by her husband Myron Butler of Edmond, OK, son Greg Butler of Front Royal Virginia, daughter Jodi Warner of Morristown, TN, daughter Kristin Davis of Edmond, OK, daughter Ann Marie Hagy of Pottsboro, TX and son Aaron Butler of Edmond, OK. She was preceded in death by her grandson Cody Freeman.  She left behind nine precious grandchildren: Megan, Blake, Emma, Ashton, Madeline, Matthew, Mitchell, Ryan and Abigail.

We fondly remember her smile, her generosity and her sense of humor.

    We dearly loved visiting my cousin, Myron, and Noreen whenever we could take a break and come down from Indiana. I fondly remember her sense of humor and her deep joy for the Lord. She will be missed, most by Myron, but by the rest of us too. I’m sure we’ll get to see her again “when the rolls are called up yonder”.

    A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12

    She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:25-31

    These scriptures perfectly describe Noreen Butler. And these are the reasons she leaves such a huge hole in the lives of her husband, children, family and friends.

    I miss her. She was a godly and spiritual woman, who lived her life to please the Lord. She was a prayer warrior. She prayed for my family and I prayed for hers. I could feel her faithful prayers for me. She was the heart and soul of her home and family. She was a blessing to all who knew her. She was the most perfect hostess I have ever known, pouring love into her hospitality, like a soothing balm. What a loss of light and love to this world!

    Rest in peace, beloved Noreen. We all long for the day when we see you again. Love and prayers for you dear ones who are grieving. God bless you and comfort you, Myron. God’s blessings and comfort upon you, Greg, Kristen, Aaron, Ann-Marie, and Jodi. May her years of constant earthly love and prayers for her grandchildren continue to influence you: Maddie, Matthew, Mitchell, Megan, Blake, Emma, Ashton, Ryan and Abby. I will continue to pray over you all.

    All my love, Eva
