EULA LOUISE BUTLER DOLBY


Photo By:

Eula Louise Butler Dolby passed away peacefully, April 16, 2013, surrounded by her fam-

ily. She was a happy woman and long-time Los Altos resident.

Born February 5, 1928 in Collinsville, CT, the second child of Myron Ferris Butler and Catharine Barber Bristol, she graduated from Hillyer College, married in 1950, and resided in Putnam, CT and Schenectady, NY before moving to Los Altos in 1960 with her husband and five young children.

For fifty-three years, Eula was an active member of Christ Episcopal Church, Los Altos and with her beautiful voice, sang in the

choir for many of those years. She played bridge often with her many friends, and loved spending time with her family. She served in the El Camino Hospital Auxiliary, logging over 6000 volunteer hours, so it is fitting that her final hours were spent in that hospital. She had a full life of 85 years.

Eula was preceded in death by 28 years by her husband James Louis Dolby, Jr., PhD. She is survived by her five children: Karen Mali (Jim) of Morgan Hill, Beth Surrell (Scott) of San Diego, Bill Dolby (Nyna) of Los Altos, Diane Straw (Tom) of Laguna Niguel, and Mark Dolby (Della) of Bellevue, WA; five grandsons, five grand-daughters, and one great-grandson.

A memorial service will be held at Christ Episcopal Church, 1040 Border Road, Los Altos, CA 94022, at 2pm on Thursday, May 23. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Eula’s honor to the ADA Improvement Fund of Christ Episcopal Church.
