Alice D. Butow passed away on December 9, 2009, at the age of 91. She was the beloved wife for 59 years of the late Arthur R. Butow; mother of Patricia McKinnis (Michael) and Quince Buteau (Jill Sokolec); grandmother of Scott McKinnis (Kecia), Christopher McKinnis and Elizabeth Shea (Robert); great-grandmother of Lucy, Grace and Patrick McKinnis and Emily Shea. Alice was born in Chicago, Illinois, and lived for most of her life in the North Shore community of Northfield. While loving and caring for her family, she designed kitchens as a part of her husband's plumbing and heating business, had a love for gardening and was an accomplished artist. Her volunteer involvement was with her children's scouting and the Chicago Botanic Children's Garden. She and her husband picked up their paintbrushes and golf clubs and retired to Tucson, Arizona in the late eighties. With special visits with her son in California, Alice lived in St. Louis to be close to her family until the end of her life. Fortified with the Sacraments of the Holy Mother the Church, Alice left us with a great deal of dignity and grace. She loved us all very much and we loved her back. A Memorial service will be held January 30, 2010. Visitation at 10:00 a.m. will be followed by the Mass at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church, 401 South Lindbergh Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri, 63141. Memorial contributions may be made to Tohono Chul Botanic Park, 6377 North Paseo de Norte, Tucson, Arizona 85704-4415, or a Charity of your Choice.
