Lori J. (Richter) Butler, 56, went to be with the Lord November 8, 2013, at home and in the presence of her adoring family. She was born March 9, 1957, to Joyce and Robert Richter.

She attended the Burlington school system, graduating in 1975. Lori, a gifted artist, attended the Burnley School of Professional Art. She had a wonderfully imaginative mind, a terrific sense of humor, and the uncanny gift to love, care for, and connect with everyone she met.

She is survived by her husband, Steven Butler; children, Megan, Melissa, and Anthony, and their father, Robert Poggioli; her parents, Joyce and Robert Richter; brothers and sisters-in-law, Doug and Carol, Dave and Cinde, and Thom and Nancy Richter; grandson, Hunter Fagin, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and loving friends.

Her life will be celebrated 12pm on Friday, November 15, 2013 at Avon United Methodist Church, 13743 Avon-Allen Road, Mount Vernon. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made in Lori's name to the charity of the donator's choice.
