October 17, 1941 ~ February 14, 2022 (age 80)


Meredith (Mary) Mae Butler was a loving, caring and adoring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to so many. She left this world on February 14th, 2022, at the age of 80 years young surrounded by her family.

She was born to John and Nelva Hendricks on October 17th 1941. After graduating from Roosevelt high school, she met her loving husband James Butler. They were married on August 20th, 1960. They moved to Silver Lake in 1972. Their marriage was blessed with three children Bryan (Michelle) Butler of Silver Lake, Gary (Dorothy) Butler of Silver Lake and Rick (Susan) Butler of Howard Lake.

In her spare time, she loved spending time in her many gardens and filling the house with her own fresh cut flowers. She also loved spending time in the kitchen making the perfect meal for her family, and always had a wonderful dessert for when the meal was done. Her favorite holiday was Christmas as her entire family filled their home with love and laughter.

Mary had many friends in her community of Silver Lake that will miss her dearly. She was an active member of the city, including serving on the Silver Lake Ambulance for 20 years, she also served as a council member and later assisted during the polling of elections.

Mary is survived by her wonderful husband Jim, of 61 years; her adoring sons, and their wives; numerous grandchildren and one great grandchild; sister, Nancy (Chris) of Waconia. Nancy will miss her older sister and the times they shared together but knows she is in a better place. Although she will be greatly missed, the memories she helped create will last a lifetime.
