Marion L. Butz, 86

April 12, 2019

Marion L. Butz (86) beloved wife to the late Harold for 63 years, mother of 4, LeeAnne (Jeff) Kornbau, Ned (Jessica) Butz, Laura (Vincent) Kotowski and Amy (John) Kamstra and 9 grandchildren, John, Greta and Oliver Butz, Emily, Samuel and Riley Kotowski and Jacob Kinney, Hutchinson and Maggie Kamstra. She was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Marion (Caldwell) Myers, passed away April 12, 2019.

Marion was born in Johnstown, PA and grew up as coal miner’s daughter in Nanty-Glo, PA. with her 3 siblings. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Nursing School in 1953 where she met and married Harold. They settled in Lancaster and have been lifelong residents of Manhiem Township. Marion was a nurse at both the Lancaster Osteopathic Hospital and Lancashire Hall Nursing Facility for many years.

Marion’s love of antiques brought she and Hal to purchase the Antique Marketplace as owners for over 22 years. Her expertise was in both textiles and glass. They both loved the antique community of friends, which became their extended family until her death.

As a grandmother she hosted Camp Grandma every summer that included Friday night variety of songs and plays, art auctions on Thursday evenings and field trips throughout the week. Finally, everyone who knew Marion could not forget the annual sandtart baking event, the hundreds of hats she knitted, the family cook book she wrote, her love of travel and as an avid Phillies fan.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday April 20, 2019, visitation at 10:00 am and a service at 11:00 am at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA. Please omit flowers.

Our deepest symphathy to all the Butz children and grandchildren.  Your Mom and I started out on a very rocky slop in 1985 when she dennied me a spot at the Antique Market place all because of a dream she had.  After days of reassurance to both her and Hal I was give a “temporary” spot at the shop with the understanding that I had 2 months to prove my self.  Twenty one years in the making we grew and developed a wonderful friendship.  We shared a birthday together and celebrated it to it’s fullest each year.  Our family shared fireworks at Longs Park each 4th of July, annual picnics at the Antique Market Place, Christmas celebrations at the shop, and finally for the last few years monthy lunches together just because we missed each other.  Your Mom give my son at age 11 his first lessions at enturpurnship…. giving him a spot at AMP all his own.  It was with the understand that he be courteous to all customes, keep his showcase clean and neat and be sure to show up for work on Saturdays .(I think there was something mentioned about “tupperwear” at the time)  I remember one time Jim was working and group of hearing impared customers came into the shop.  He felt so bad that no one was able to help them with their questions.  Marion just look at him and said..”so what do you want to do about it to help the situation?”.  She left it up to him to find the answer…  6 months later he was fluent in American sign lanuage and was so proud each time he was able to use that skill at the shop for the next 7 years.  Your Mom had taught him a wonderful life lesson on how to make things “right” in the world.  She was always in charge but also always willing to pass on her kind and generous life lessions.
As with all of you….. I will miss my dear friend.  Her memory will always bring a smile to my face.  Jerry & Evie Buescher
