The Butler Family announces with great sadness the passing of Susan Butler. After beating the odds for years, she ultimately lost her fight with cancer.

Susan was born and raised @butlersorchard and devoted her life to agriculture in Montgomery County.

As a 2nd generation owner of Butler’s Orchard, Susan built the framework for what can be seen and enjoyed by their many visitors today.

She mentored generations of employees and brought memories & fresh produce to many farm customers.

Susan retired from Butler’s Orchard and she and her husband, Washington, opened @docwaterscidery and Waters Orchard

Susan was a very kind and generous soul. She provided love, care, opportunity, and inspiration to so many. She will be dearly missed.
