Emily Butt Obituary

Emily L. Butt passed away on February 27, 2024, surrounded by her loving family at Boston Children's Hospital after a courageous battle with leukemia.  Born on May 19, 2015, Emily's vibrant spirit and infectious smile were a gift to all who knew her during her precious eight years of life.    


The beloved daughter of Suzanne (Musco) and Terrence Butt of Milton, Emily was the cherished younger sister of Lindsay and Brendan. She was the adored granddaughter of Lynne Musco of Milton and the late Louis F. Musco, and Carolyn and Alan Butt of Revere. Emily's warmth and laughter will also be deeply missed by her aunt Leanne Gibbons of Norwell, aunt Michele Butt and uncle Joe Kurtzer of Wrentham, uncle Marc Musco and aunt Amanda MacDowell of Hull, along with numerous cousins with whom she shared countless happy memories.  


Emily was an integral part of the Cunningham Elementary School and Milton Community. Known for her quick wit, positivity, generosity, and kind hearted personality, she could often be spotted in the local hockey arenas and around the playing fields cheering on her sister and brother and their teammates.  She will always be remembered by her friends, classmates, teachers, and all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  


A girl of many passions and talents, Emily always knew what she wanted and wasn't afraid to express herself with the utmost confidence.  Her creativity, beauty, and sense of fun were always on display when Tik Tokking, listening to music, and practicing dance and gymnastics.  Her ability to connect with others and spread happiness even during her challenging times was a rare gift that will continue to resonate in the hearts of her family and friends.  


Family was the cornerstone of Emily's world, and the special bond she shared with her sister Lindsay and brother Brendan was filled with laughter and unconditional love.  Emily was always more focused on the well-being of her siblings and parents, and the strength and joy with which she approached every day of her life will always be admired and held dear forever. 


Emily's life, though far too brief, was marked by her loving nature, friendly demeanor, and joyous attitude that lifted everyone she encountered.  Her spirit will live on forever, and her strength and love will continue to light the way for us all.  


Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Mass at St. Elizabeth's Church located at 350 Reedsdale Road in Milton on Tuesday, March 5, at 11:30am.   Burial will be private.  


A celebration of Emily's life will take place on May 19, 2024.  More details will be provided at a later date for all to join.
