A resident of Williamsburg for the past 18 years Kelly Buter passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, following a courageous four year battle with cancer. She was 44.
Kelly was born in Brockville on September 5, 1971 to her parents Don and Patricia Tryon (nee Stinchcombe) and was raised on English Road north of Iroquois.
She attended Stampville Public School, Iroquois Public School and Seaway District High School.
After graduating from high school she went to St. Lawrence College in Kingston where she received her Law and Security Diploma.
On August 10, 1996, she married Randy Buter and together they had three children Kendra, Katie and Dryden.
Kelly’s love for her family was evident every minute of every day.
Kelly enjoyed coaching as well as participating in many sports including hockey and baseball.
She also enjoyed children which was evident in the love and patience she showed for her own children as well as those children she worked with as an Education Assistant with the Upper Canada District School Board.
She treated her students as her own and rejoiced with them at every goal they achieved.
Kelly loved the simple things that life has to offer: the sun on her face, her toes in the water (no snakes), animals (again, no snakes), corn on the cob and coke in a can.
Kelly is survived by her husband Randy, her children Kendra, Katie and Dryden, her parents Don and Patricia Tryon and her brother Mike Tryon (Debbi) of Morrisburg. She was predeceased by her brother Sheldon. She is also survived by aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and one great-nephew.
Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Williamsburg, on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service was held at Williamsburg Christian Reformed Church on Saturday, June 4th at 11 a.m., with Rev. John Noordhof officiating. Cremation followed.
The pallbearers who were dear to Kelly were Natasha Hodge, Amy Tryon, Jordan Tryon, Kelly DeDekker, Mary Lalonde, Chris Merkley and Cole Merkley.
