In the gentle embrace of twilight, on September 12, 2023, we had to bid farewell to a pillar of love and resilience, Sandra Dare Butcher, from Broadway, Virginia. At the age of 85, her journey on this earthly realm came to a peaceful close, leaving behind a tapestry of memories woven with family and friends. To all those whose lives she touched, the sanctuary of this memorial page is a space to share condolences, reflecting upon the profound impact Sandra left behind.

The harmonious melodies of Sandra’s life were occasionally met with the somber notes of goodbye. She was greeted in the hereafter by her parents, William Earl Edmonson, Sr. and Doris Pauline Nelson Edmonson; her step-son, James Powell; her cherished grandson, Seth Bailey; and her brother, William Earl Edmonson, Jr.

However, the symphony of her life continues to echo in the hearts of those she held dear. Her loving husband, William Powell Butcher, remains a testament to their enduring bond. Her legacy thrives through her children: Terrence Butcher (Mikki), Daren Butcher (Debbie), Deborah Bailey (Russell), and Bonnie Fitzwater (Stanley). Additionally, her love resonates in the laughter and tales of her sisters, Brenda Powell and Ava Sullivan (Danny). The stories of her nurturing spirit will undoubtedly be passed down through her twelve grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

For those wishing to pay their final respects and immerse in the collective memories of Sandra, a visitation is scheduled on Monday, September 18th, 2023, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Kyger Funeral Home, located at 3173 Spotswood Trail, Harrisonburg, VA 22801. This will be followed by a heartfelt service at 1:00 PM, celebrating Sandra’s vibrant life. Her earthly journey will be commemorated with a burial at Eastlawn Memorial Gardens, 3289 Spotswood Trail, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, later that day.

In these moments of reflection, let us cherish Sandra’s memory, carrying her lessons, love, and legacy forward.
