Ardene Janice Butterfield
1930 - 2019

Ardene Janice Butterfield passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 13, 2019 in Avon, CT, just two weeks shy of her 89th birthday. A born, bred and very proud Rhode Islander, Ardene grew up in Cranston and attended Cranston High School. As the daughter of Armenian immigrants, she was the first female in her family to attend university, graduating from Pembroke College (now Brown University) in 1952 with a degree in psychology. Ardene was married to Charles Butterfield, Jr., a prominent Warwick lawyer for 17 years. Her greatest joy was raising her four children.

After her children were grown, Ardene enjoyed a rich, full 37 years living at Royal Crest Estates in Warwick. There, she pursued her passions, from mastering bridge and sudoku to watching her beloved Red Sox baseball team. Never one to wallow in boredom, she chose to stimulate her mind with good books, current events, her daily Jeopardy fix, and following the exploits of her children and eight grandchildren.

Her last two years were spent in Avon, CT so she could be closer to her eldest daughter and son-in-law. Ardene will be missed dearly by her family: Lisa Butterfield and Daniel Correia of Simsbury, CT, Lori Butterfield and Duane Empey of Chevy Chase, MD, Steven Butterfield and Lisa Langhoff of Lafayette, CA and Bruce Butterfield of Fort Worth, TX. Her grandchildren include Alex Correia (London, UK) , Jillian Correia (Charlotte, NC), Elle Butterfield-Empey (Chevy Chase, MD), Charlie Butterfield (Lafayette, CA), Bridget Butterfield (Los Angeles, CA), Charlotte Butterfield (East Greenwich, RI), Allison Butterfield (East Greenwich, RI) and Andrew Butterfield (Charlotte, NC).

Our family wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to the wonderful, caring team at Avon Health Center. There will be a private memorial service for immediate family and no calling hours. Please visit Ardene’s “Book of Memories” at for online tributes.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Ardene. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

My deepest sympathy to the Butterfield Family. I met Ardene many years ago thru her brother Donald & sister in law Sona Stevens. Ardene was such a lovely lady and always so pleasant. RIP Ardene...😥

Ardene was my upstairs neighbor who became a wonderful friend for 37 years. We had a super friendship and I enjoyed her calm, steadiness and curious nature. She loved her 4 children and I heard about their adventures. God bless her.
