Ann K. Butler, 88, of Arlington Heights was born February 1, 1931 to Thomas and Anita (nee Huse) Kelly in Hempstead, NY and passed away peacefully March 1, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. Ann received her Bachelor’s degree in Education from Adelphi University where she was a proud member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. In 1955 she married John Musgrave Butler, a handsome young auditor from Brooklyn. They were married for 61 years until his death in 2016. Ann taught social studies at Hicksville High School until she retired to raise her family. She was a teacher at heart and often said that she never stopped teaching, just got a smaller class. While raising her family, Ann enjoyed supporting her husband in his career and traveling with him. Their favorite place in the world was Maui and they enjoyed many trips there with children and grandchildren. Ann was the beloved wife of the late John M. Butler; loving mother of Maureen (Jim) Sherwood, John K. (Lisa Masucci) Butler, Ellen (Larry) Dietrick and Sue (Doug) Howland; awesome Nana of Mike (Katie) Sherwood, Neal (Brittney) Sherwood, Kevin Sherwood, Jack Butler, Lucy Butler, Larry Dietrick, John Dietrick, Michelle (Bryan) Solomon, Kelly Dietrick, Mariann Howland, Tom Howland and Kimberly Howland and dear sister of the late Kathy Carney.
