Julia Ann Riedinger
January 12, 1949 ‒ April 22, 2020
Julia Ann Riedinger, “Ann,” passed away unexpectedly and will be deeply missed. Her jovial personality and love of playing games of all sorts made for wonderful memories of good-natured fun and lots of laughter. She enjoyed adventures planned and unplanned despite being directionally challenged and slightly accident prone. She never admitted to being lost, but instead would declare being on an adventure. Life was never dull when Ann was around.
Ann grew up in Ada, Ohio with her two brothers, Patrick and William, and her parents William J. Butterfield and Maybelle (Anderson) Butterfield. Ann was a dedicated daughter to her mother in her mother’s final years. She is survived by her older brother, Patrick Butterfield, sister-in-law, Rose Butterfield, her daughter, Amy (Wallace) Sawyer, son-in-law, Russell Sawyer, two grandsons, Joe and John, sister-in-law, Linda Butterfield, nephews, Timothy and Zebediah, and niece, Nicole.
Ann served her country proudly in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War and was an avid and energetic Buckeye fan.
Her grandsons will miss her visits, which often promised homemade cookies and plenty of laughs. Ann enjoyed spending time with her grandsons and she would frequently go to the movies with them- especially Star Wars movies.
Her daughter will miss her humor, her support, her love, and her company.
Try not to get lost, Mom. Remember you want to go up.
Memorial services were held privately by the family.
