Patricia Ann Jensen Butler
December 24, 1931 ~ June 29, 2022
Patricia Ann Jensen Butler, 90, passed away on June 29, 2022 surrounded by her family.
She was preceded in death by her eternal companion, Allan Keith Butler.
She is survived by her beloved children, David Butler (Lisa), Kevin Butler (Teri), Annette Hruska (David), and Suzanne Bunker (Jeff), 21 grandchildren and 47 great-grandchildren with 3 on the way and many more to come.
Pat was born in Wheeling, West Virginia on December 24, 1931 to John Paul Comer and Ann Bowman. Before she was five, she and her mother moved to California where she received her early education and then moved to Ogden, Utah where she graduated early from Ogden High School in 1947. In high school, she was a member of the Carpe Diem club, a motto she carried throughout her life.
At 17, Pat won Miss Ogden. She went on to compete in Miss Utah but because of her short stature, she couldn’t hold the official title. Her beauty and grace took her to Weber College and The University of Utah where she joined Pi Beta Phi National Sorority.
In high school, she met her beloved husband, Allan and continued to date in college.
Pat married Allan Butler in 1950. They moved to Houston, Texas in 1960 where they lived the rest of their lives. Together, they raised four wonderful children, David, Kevin,
Annette, and Suzanne. After decades of happy years of marriage, they leave a legacy of 21 grandchildren and 47 great-grandchildren and still counting.
Pat lived her life as a valiant, faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She and Allan worked as temple workers in the Houston Temple for over 10 years. Together, they also served a service mission with the Vietnamese people in the Houston area. Her love for her children, grandchildren and great-children and her knowledge of eternal families, guided her back to Allan, who has patiently waited for her for over eight years.
President Gordon B. Hinckley
"All of us have to deal with
death at one time or another, but
to have in one's heart a solid
conviction concerning the reality of
eternal life is to bring a sense of
peace in an hour of tragedy and
loss that can come from no other
source under the heavens."
Pat was fun and feisty, but most of all, she was faithful. Her passion for her family kept her active, and she loved participating in everyone’s lives. Known by her grandkids as “Gramma” or “G”, Pat was the embodiment of love and her legacy will carry on as “love one another”.
