Suzanne Marie Buttolph

May 19, 1949November 24, 2019

Suzanne Marie Buttolph, 70, passed away on November 24 peacefully at her home in Ruther Glen, Virginia, surrounded by her loving family.

Suzi was born May 19, 1949 to Clark and June (Bigness) Wiswell, Clayton, New York. On September 2, 1967, she married her husband of 52 years, Roland Buttolph. They raised two children together, Tricia and Jeffrey, while living in Fulton, New York. In 1985, she achieved her dream of becoming a nurse and worked as an LPN until her retirement in 2009.

More than anything, Suzi loved spending time with her family, especially her three grandchildren, Delaney, Logan, and Lindsey. A woman of deep faith, each morning began quietly in prayer and reading her Bible. She also enjoyed being on the water, going for rides in the family pontoon boat and fishing with her husband. In her later years, Suzi found a passion for knitting and crocheting, using her gift to bless those less fortunate with countless hats, scarves, and mittens.

Suzi was preceded in death by her mother and father. She is survived by her husband, Roland, her children, Tricia (Fred) Montville, and Jeffrey (Natalie) Buttolph, her grandchildren Delaney Normile, Logan and Lindsey Buttolph, her sister, Holly (David) Berger, several nieces and nephews, and a few cherished friends.

At her request, there will be no funeral services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to New Century Hospice, 221 Duke Street, Tappahannock, Virginia 22560.

I will miss u my friend ! You where my first friend when we lived in Fulton . Many many years ago , You helped with my kids and they just loved you, even after the sugar incidence. You talked me out of the phone booth when I called you when I was in labor with karen.
You also helped out when I was sick and you took karen into your home while I was in the hospital . I just want to say thank you for all you have done and I am sure you brought happiness to all. God bless you and your family .
Love you all
Until we meet again my friend 💕

I had the privilege of working with Suzi in nursing for several years. She always cared deeply for her patients, gave 110%, and was spunky. I got to know her and her family when we moved to Virginia 18 years ago and they also became like family & are good friends to us. Although life would get crazy busy we always knew we had a friend with Suzi and her family. Suzi loved her family & friends. She always made you feel at home when you visited or caught up by phone or text. She had a way of making you smile, feel welcomed & cared for. She was a nurturing soul. She was always so proud of her family. She would light up when she spoke of them & you always felt her joy which in turn made you smile. She loved her grandkids, her children, & her husband. Her family was everything to her & I know she was everything to them. She will truly be missed by everyone. I know she will always be watching over her loved ones. Our family is blessed to have had the privilege of knowing her & the family. May God bless you all & comfort you. With love- The Edwards Family
