Gwyneth Mary Butler
On January 29, 2018 our beloved mom, grandmother and great-grandmother Gwyneth Mary Butler passed away after 91 amazing years.
Born in Edmonton on November 3, 1926, Gwyneth was a beautiful and bright woman with a great sense of humour and wonderful spirit of adventure. When she was just 16, she took a train to Vancouver to “see the coast,” where she fell in love with and married a handsome young seaman named Norman Hicks. They had two children together--daughter Cathryn and son Glenn.
Gwyneth loved to read (usually with one of her cherished pets asleep on her lap) and believed a good story should be shared. Her home was always filled with the books she loved and thoughtfully loaned. She also had a wicked sense of humour and could light up a room with her infectious laughter and wonderful storytelling.
Survived by her daughter Cathryn Anderson (David); son Glenn Butler (Katherine); and eight grandchildren: Megan Chartier (Errol Bressler); Ian Anderson (Alysha); Emily Anderson; Lauren Krahn (Cody); Scott Butler; Kelly Johnston (James Hill); Cassandra Drinnan and Joe Drinnan; and four great-grandchildren: Ryker, Jonnie, Gwenyth and a little one due to arrive in June. She is also survived by her dear friend, Kelli Riste.

My deepest syphathy, to the family and friends of this beautiful person. I stumbled on this notice, and was brought to tears because although I never knew this sweet woman- I know one of her grandchildren. I know how much this woman meant to her and can see how she Influenced the life of this perfect human being- shaped her into someone with so much love and light that she brightens the lives of all who know her. She must have been a very special woman
-the bible gives us hope in Rev-21:3,4 that someday you will see her again- that she is kept in God’s memory n one day he will bring her back-hope that day comes soon
