Alma Creecy Butler, 70, a longtime member of the Women's Board of Georgetown University Hospital, died of a respiratory ailment Monday at her home at Rosmoor Leisure World in Silver Spring.
Mrs. Butler was born and reared in Washington and graduated from Holy Cross Academy, which is now located in Kensington, and The Washington School for Secretaries.
In 1935, she married J. Godfrey Butler, a former senior vice president of the old D.C. Transit System. She then worked for General Motors for about a year before resigning to devote time to her family.
She and her husband lived in Chevy Chase and Bethesda before moving to Rossmoor about three years ago.
Mrs. Butler was active in the sodality of the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church here and in the Catholic Daughters of America, Court Forest Glen.
In addition to her husband, survivors include a son, John G. Jr., of Rockville; a daughter, Jeanne B. Chamorro of Crofton; a brother, Leonard L. Creecy of Chillum; a sister, Anne L. Dietle of Silver Spring, and five grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Alma Butler Memorial Fund of the Interfaith Chapel at Rossmoor Leisure World.
