Butler MaryBUTLER, Mary Victoria (Tory)  - May 20th, 1966 - March 1st, 2017

Written by Tory’s lifelong friend, Patricia Whiting

My friend Tory was:

It is impossible to find words that describe the brilliant, dynamic, bright-as-a-shooting-star presence that was Tory. It’s like trying to hold a sunbeam in your hand – it can’t be done.

She would chat up anyone, store clerks, people in the elevator and even if she was only interacting with them for a few minutes she would start using their first name like it was on a name tag!

Kids LOVED her! She was Aunt Fun. I remember her making faces at the supper table when Eric was about 4. She’d say “no more faces at the table”. Then when no one was looking she’d make a face at him and send him into shrieks of laughter to her own amusement.
