Sue Butler Obituary, Death – The passing of Sue Butler has left a deep sense of sadness within the community. As the Executive Director of The Carnegie, I had the privilege of meeting her on several occasions, and it was evident how much she meant to the people in Northern Kentucky and beyond. Sue’s immense generosity towards numerous organizations is truly remarkable, and it is difficult to comprehend the extent to which her kindness has benefited countless individuals. We at The Carnegie consider ourselves fortunate to have had Sue and Bill Butler as friends.
Chip Finke, the President of The Carnegie’s Board, reached out to me soon after the news broke, expressing how Sue Butler was not only a dedicated board member but also a longtime friend of the organization. While the entire community will undoubtedly feel the loss, The Carnegie will particularly miss her presence. Sue served on our Board of Directors from 2010 to 2019, and her impact continues to be felt. Her absence will be deeply felt.
Over the past week, I have spoken with members of our organization and individuals in the community who knew Sue well. They all speak of her genuine passion for uplifting those in need and providing a helping hand on their journey towards success and opportunity. Sue leaves behind a legacy that is both admirable and worthy of emulation. We can only extend our sympathy and condolences to Sue’s family and friends, assuring them that the positive work she accomplished throughout her life will continue to impact future generations long after her passing.
In another act of kindness, the Butler family has suggested that memorial contributions be made to either the Butler Foundation at 100 E. RiverCenter Blvd., Suite 1100, Covington, or the UC Health Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, c/o UC Foundation, PO Box 19970, Cincinnati, OH 45219. This serves as a testament to Sue’s ongoing commitment to supporting causes close to her heart.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon on Saturday, July 15, 2023, at Mother of God Church in Covington. Visitation will take place immediately preceding the Mass from 9:00 am to noon. For those unable to attend in person, the Mass will be live-streamed at mother-of-god.org/churchcast, allowing friends and well-wishers to pay their respects remotely.
In conclusion, let us remember Sue Butler with fondness and gratitude for the positive impact she had on our community. Her legacy will endure, and her memory will continue to inspire us to make a difference in the lives of others. May she rest in peace.
