1933 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
BUTLER, Barbara (Compardy) 82, a long-time resident of Colchester, Vermont, passed away peacefully at The Arbors at Shelburne on August 14, 2016. Barbara was born in Milford, Massachusetts on September 9, 1933, the daughter of Anthony and Adeline (Orifice) Compardy. She graduated from Norwood Senior High School in 1951 and on May 2, 1953, married Robert F. Butler. Bob predeceased her on October 16, 1998. Barbara was a bookkeeper by trade, working most of her career for Wiemann-Lamphere Architects. Barbara took great pride in her work; only retiring from full time employment when Bob became ill. After retirement, she enjoyed volunteering her time with RSVP, the Elks Club and the VNA among other noble causes. "Auntie" also enjoyed day excursions with the many friends she made along the way at the Heineburg Senior Center and Elks Club. Our beloved Auntie had a wonderful spunk and zest for life until stricken by Alzheimer's disease. Barbara is survived by her nephew, David Butler, his wife Patty and sons Nick, Jesse, Derek and Kasey, and niece, Maureen Butler, and her daughter Sarah. Memories of Barbara will also be cherished by close friends and caretakers, Susan Dorey and Kathy Gleason, who were her "adopted nieces". Barbara was extremely proud of her Italian heritage and leaves behind many members of the extended Orifice and Compardy families. A heartfelt 'thank you' from all of us goes out to the angels who staff The Arbors at Shelburne for their loving, compassionate and tireless attention to Barbara during her stay. They are truly a remarkable group of people and words fail to express the depth of our appreciation. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on August 17, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Stephen's Church in Winooski, Vermont. Interment will follow at Fort Ethan Allen Cemetery, Essex, Vermont. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Barbara's name may be made to the , 300 Cornerstone Drive, Suite 130, Williston, Vermont, 05495. Arrangements are under the care of LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Condolences may be shared at www.lavignefuneralhome.com.
