Alexandria “Allie” Rae Butori came to us on a cold snowy winter night on December 28th, 2001. After a courageous fight against cancer, Allie was welcomed by her Savior in the evening hours of January 23rd, 2023. The snow fell again as she entered Heaven’s gate. She fought with every ounce of strength she had during her illness. She told us all that God has a plan, even though we do not understand, we need to have faith. Allie had such a strong faith, and we all drew from this. God had a plan for this beautiful soul and needed her sooner than we on earth were ready for.
Allie was a gentle compassionate soul, all who knew her benefited from her love. Adults and children gravitated towards her. She was giving of herself and her heart to help others. She volunteered at her church as a youth leader, Ronald McDonald house, Feed My Starving Children, she also went on a mission trip to Haiti, and so much more.
Allie’s passion was to ski. She was flying down the hill at a very young age and would be on the mountain every chance she got. She was strong and free while skiing and she could pick a line like no one else. She breathed in the mountain air and was one with God while she enjoyed His splendor. Allie’s other passions were hiking, camping, fishing, going for long drives, horseback riding, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, and anything outdoors.
Allie loved to travel and see new things. She had the opportunity to live in Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Italy, and Utah and to travel to many other places, touching lives wherever she went. One of her last requests was a RV trip to Utah’s National Parks to give her family memories to last their lifetime.
Allie loved learning and school was so important to her. She earned her associate’s degree in science while still attending high school. After high school, she attended Weber State University and was thriving in the respiratory therapy program.
Allie loved fiercely, as a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece and friend. All of you who knew her will never be the same, as Allie’s light will always be a part of you. She will not want sadness, but for us to be more compassionate, caring, faithful, and loving in every aspect.
Allie leaves behind her Dad and Mom, Derek and Holly Butori; brothers, Caden and Damon; her soulmate, Brock Lagucki; and best friend, Keely Brinn; Grandparents, Craig and Gail Hansen, Carter and Lori Butori, George and Mary (Clague) Lampman; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She joined her grandmother, Donna Hansen who welcomed her with open arms.
A Celebration of Allie’s life will be at Alpine Church, 254 West 2675 North, Layton, Utah on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 4:00 pm.
