Tralee died on October 22, 2022 in her beautiful home, while overlooking the ocean with her family, at the young age of 71 years..
She was born in Gander on October 18, 1951 to Desmond and Ruth Daly (nee Davis). As a young girl, her family moved to St. John’s where she went to Presentation, followed by Holy Heart. As a young lady, she married Bob and moved to Foxtrap in 1971.
Leaving to cherish and celebrate her life and memories are her husband Robert (Bob) Butler, daughter Nikki Butler (Melvin), son Rob Butler (Candace); kindred spirit and sister Sheila Hallett (Jim), sister Ann Duggins (Russ); special nephew Des Hallett (Rhonda), special niece Vicki Hallet (David) and great-nephew Sam Hallett-Hopkins; sisters-in-law Linda Rideout (Warren) and Joyce Rideout (Chris); as well as many other wonderful family and friends.
Born Mary Margaret, she was nicknamed Tralee by Sheila as a baby. Nobody knew her as Mary, she was Tral, or Tralee.
Tralee created a wonderful, welcoming home with Bob, and would put the kettle on when ever the door opened. You were welcome.
This warmth and generosity, combined with her quick wit and sense of humor followed her from her home to her career with Canada Post. We are certain there were as many laughs as stamps at the Kelligrews Post Office. Just ask Eva and Karen.
After her retirement, her creative eye, love of art and sense of adventure flourished when she followed a dream and signed up for painting classes with Glenda. The walls in the red brick house resemble an art gallery.
We admired Tralee for her bravery, strength, intelligence, sense of humour and openness.
