Nancy Jones Butterfield ’60

Nancy attended Reed and Portland State and spent most of her life in Astoria, Oregon. For 33 years she was an editor and feature writer at the Daily Astorian and the Chinook Observer in Long Beach, Washington. Nancy raised three boys single-handedly and loved socializing with people to discover unique things about them. A voracious reader, she enjoyed traveling, genealogy, and British TV dramas. She was a lifelong newshound, even in retirement; in 2005, when the oil barge Millicoma ran aground near Cape Disappointment, she rushed to the scene with a camera to snap dramatic photos. Preceded in death by her husband, Michael Rush, she is survived by her three sons, Mark, Tod, and Jason Butterfield.
