Celebration of Life

It saddens our hearts to announce the passing of Patricia Ann Butler, a loving wife, mother, aunt and friend on Friday, March 4, at her home in Tehachapi at the age of 75.

Trish was born Patricia Ann Osborne, in Los Angeles, to James and Minerva Osborne on May 3, 1946. She grew up in Redondo Beach, California. She loved to dance and won several awards. As a teen, she loved to surf. She attended Aviation High School and Goldenwest College. Although she had no formal training, Trish was an accomplished Printed Circuit Board Designer for Master Specialty Company.

In 1976, she married the love of her life, Robert Butler. You would never see one without the other by their side.

Trish had a passion for baking and crocheting. Any reason she could find, she was baking, whether it was for the holidays to disburse to the fire department, police department, family and friends or for an event that someone in the family was attending. Trish received several awards at the Orange County Fair for her beautiful afghans.

Trish is survived by her husband, Robert Butler of Tehachapi; her daughters, Tobyanne Casey of Tehachapi, Trishalee Criss of Kingman, Arizona, Shannon Hebel of Prescott, Arizona, Teana-Louise King of Riverside, California; 14 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
