Anne Butts

1915-2013

Anne was born to Mary Gosetti and Leandro Tirapelle in August 1915, in the little lumber town of Hermansville, Upper Peninsula, Mich. She passed to her eternal rest on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013, at the age of 98, in Placerville, Calif. With her parents, sister and brother, she relocated in early 1916 to Sonora, Tuolumne County, Calif. She was a proficient student and graduated from Curtis Creek Grammar School in Standard, Calif., and nearby Sonora Union High School in 1933. In 1935, the middle of the Great Depression, the Tirapelle family relocated to Diamond Springs, where her father, brothers and sister took employment with the California Door Company, later known as CalDor Lumber Company. It was there that Anne met her partner for life, James Robson Butts. They were married in 1939 at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville.

Anne was preceded in death by her husband, James Robson Butts in 2005; a son, Henry Joseph, who died in infancy; brothers, Joseph Vitale, Edward Leandro and George Robert Tirapelle; and sister, Josephine Mary Tirapelle. She is survived by son, James Edward Butts (Bonnie); daughter, Carol Anne Sigl (John); brother, Louis Anthony Tirapelle; sister-in-law, Marie Orpha Lee Tirapelle; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Anne was what is now called a stay-at-home mom. Her husband, Jim, was well able to support his wife and children working as a lumber grader at Placerville Lumber Company. When he retired, he and Anne were active in the El Dorado County Mineral and Gem Society, enjoyed their trips to the Lake Tahoe casinos on the Hospice support bus and bingo games at several locations in the area. Anne was active in sports in high school and played second base for the CalDor Lumber Company softball team in an El Dorado County league in the late 1930s and 1940s. Until her final days she continued her interest in sports, watching football and particularly golf on television.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 3109 Sacramento Street in Placerville, at 11 a.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 4, by Fr. Lenerio Jong Sabuga, preceded at the church by Rosary and Eulogy at 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at St. Patrick Cemetery on Green Street in Placerville.

In lieu of flowers donations in Anne’s name may be sent to the Snowline Hospice, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619. Funeral arrangements are by the Chapel of the Pines in Placerville.
