VIRGINIA A. BUTLER
Virginia A. Butler, 87, of Superior, died Thursday, April 12, 2012, in Benedictine Health Center, Duluth.
She was born July 25, 1924, in Superior, the daughter of Leo and Bessie (Pawlikowski) Homsey.
Virginia's work history included the F.B.I.'s fingerprint division in Washington, D.C., an operator for Wisconsin Bell Telephone and many years as a homemaker. She was a long time member of Cathedral of Christ the King.
Daily journaling, making sure photos were taken at every family occasion or special event and always looking out for the welfare of animals were special interests of hers.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband, Joseph L. Butler, in 1996.
Virginia is survived by her daughter, Darleen Butler, of Superior; many cousins; and her special feline friend, "Peter".
A special thank you to the caring staff at the Benedictine Health Center, Sister Mary Susan DeWitt, staff Chaplin and St. Luke's hospice, Duluth.
