Obituary for Lydia "Peggy" Jeanette Buteyn

"Peggy" Jeanette Buteyn, 92, of Sheboygan, passed away on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.  Peggy was born March 22, 1925 in Kohler, WI to Cornelius and Cornella (Minnard) Buteyn. In her younger years, she enjoyed growing up on the land of the Kohler Stables where her father worked with the horses. In the 1950s, she moved to Holland, Michigan to pursue her degree from Hope College. Throughout her years at the college she worked various jobs as a residence director, secretary, and Departmental Counselor. After graduation, Peggy devoted her career and life to helping others. She worked as a social worker for the State of Michigan. In 1984, Peggy returned to be closer to her family. She was a member of Hope Reformed Church in Sheboygan. She was wonderful at encouraging others on their Christian walk. Peggy was a humble servant of Jesus Christ and His church. She had a passion for music and loved serving as the church organist for many years.  Peggy was bright, quick-witted, humorous, a good listener and conversationalist. She was always smiling, positive, warm and caring. Her hobbies included the piano, crosswords, sewing, babysitting, and baking. Peggy took great joy in teaching children how to bake, especially young Connor who recently learned how to make her signature poppy seed bread. Her cookies, cakes, and breads were enjoyed by everyone she knew. Peggy is survived by many generations of loved ones who became like family; Ken, Sara, Nathan & Calla Born, James & Marilyn Holden family; neighbors, Curt, Jean, Alex, Mathew & Anna Brauer, Kay Hilpertshauser; dear friends, Gertie & Bert Stam family, Nori Huibregtse, the Warmus family, and so many more wonderful friends, neighbors and church members that were there for Peggy through the years.

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Robert (Edith) Buteyn.  A memorial service to celebrate Peggy's life will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Hope Church, 612 Ontario Avenue, Sheboygan, with Rev. Bill TeWinkle officiating. An inurnment will follow at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers a memorial fund is being established in her name. Her loved ones would like to express their immense gratitude and many thanks to the kind nurses and staff of Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice who made Peggy’s final days comfortable and full of kindness. For online condolences and additional information please visit  The Wenig Funeral Home of Sheboygan Falls (920-467-3431) is serving the Buteyn family with arrangements.
