Susan R. Butcher

Mar. 1952 – Jan. 2019

Susan R. Butcher, 66, went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 28, 2019.  Susan was living in Madison, Wisconsin at the time of her death.

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota to Don and Shirley (Adams) McKibben in the winter of 1952, Susan grew up with her two sisters, Carolyn and Teri.  She majored in social studies and graduated from CSU, Stanislaus.  Helping people became the backbone of Susan’s career as she worked for Stanislaus County as a social worker for Adult Protective Services.

Susan met the love of her life, Ronald Butcher and they were married in Fontana, California and had three amazing children, Jeff, Brian and Kelli. A wonderful mom who always made time for her kids, Susan was a very kind person.  Susan’s faith was also very important to her and while living in Turlock, Susan attended Monte Vista Chapel.  Although Susan will be deeply missed, there is peace knowing she is reunited with her husband and her mom and dad in Heaven.

Susan is survived by her sisters Carolyn Quick and Teri Mclaughlin; children Jeff Butcher, Brian Butcher and Kelli Estes; grandkids Terrell Estes, Isabelle Butcher, Kailey Estes and Nathaniel Butcher.

A Celebration of Susan’s life will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at Allen Mortuary in Turlock with a Reception following at the Allen Event Center.  Please share your memories at

    I have very special memories of Susie, she was the sweetest person and very genuine. Many of my memories of Susie include her husband, Ron, and her parents. All very genuine and authentic. I loved them!

    Susie was like a second mom to me, and an amazing aunt. It breaks my heart that I can’t be there today. I loved her very much and some of my favorite childhood memories are of climbing the cherry tree in her backyard, her teaching me to play piano, and introducing me to pomegranates. Kelli and I were more like sisters than cousins since we didn’t have sisters of our own. 4th of July was always a blast at Susies house. She is very missed! I’m glad she’s with her mom and dad and husband now.
