AYDLETT, NC - Olive Bunch Butt left the coast and banks of Aydlett, NC to arrive on God's Eternal Shore on June 15, 2014. Left to cherish her memory and enjoy the fruits of her affection are her children Sharon Hodges and her husband, Chris, of Marshall, VA; Karen Mayne and her husband, Paul of Marietta, GA; James Butt and his wife, Inok, of Queens, NY; Kevin Butt and his wife, Jill, of Virginia Beach, VA; five granddaughters and many nieces and nephews. Olive married her lifelong love, James Butt, Sr. in 1954 and enjoyed almost fifty years together before his passing. Olive is survived by her brother, Gerald Bunch and his wife, Charlotte, of Greenville, NC and her sister Janice Owens and her husband, Dean, of Harbinger, NC. Olive was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2004 and was given six months to live. God's Mercy was extended to her and she went into remission and lived ten years beyond the doctor's initial prognosis, thereby earning the title of "Miracle Lady." Sincere thanks goes to all the helpers and family members who so graciously lent support to Olive. Special thanks to Olive's niece, Melodie and her husband, Mark Marshall, for being such good neighbors through the years. Warm thanks also to all the staff and friends at the Currituck House in Moyock, NC and the wonderful staff at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.
