Age 78, of East Tawas, MI was born on March 30, 1932 in Royal Oak, MI to the late Earl and Helen Weaver (nee Allen). Dorothy has called East Tawas home since the late 1940’s where she has left her mark as selfless and caring wife and mother. She enjoyed spending time with her family above all and providing them with her example of strength and courage. Dorothy loved working in her yard and tending to her flowers, snowmobiling, going to Jazzercise, dancing, playing the organ, listening to country music, and playing slot machines at the casino with Las Vegas being a favorite destination. She also enjoyed traveling out West to winter in Tuscon, AZ. Dorothy is survived by three children: James, Jr. (Linda) Butler of Fredericksburg, VA, Debra (David) Mielock of Northville, MI, David (Faye) Butler of Midland, MI; seven grandchildren: Stephanie, Robert, Brian, Lauren, Tyler, Kirsty, and Taylor. She is also survived by her great-grandson Jamison Tingler, brother Earl J. Weaver, Jr. of East Tawas, MI; two sisters: Margaret Roberts of West Bloomfield, MI, Carol (Jake) Stone of OR and several nieces and nephews. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, James T. Butler, Sr. on January 11, 2005 and two sisters: Betty Salvato and Virginia Memmer. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2010 - 11 am at the Buresh Funeral Home in Tawas City, MI.

Condolences

If there were words that could heal a heart, I would speak them. If there were songs that could fill the emptiness, I would sing them. If there were arms big enough to hold the loss, I would extend them.
But only You, Lord, can offer these precious mercies.
In Your grace, please grant them, Lord.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
