Obituary

Josephine Evans Butcher, 73, of Oak Hill, WV passed away December 30, 2020 at home after a long illness. She went peacefully in her sleep with her devoted husband Dave Butcher, her loving daughter LaVon Butcher, and friend/caregiver Karen Dempsey by her side.
Jo was the daughter of the late Nick LaRocco Sr. and the late Mary Gill LaRocco of Oak Hill.
Jo is preceded in death by her brother Nick LaRocco Jr. of Oak Hill and her brother in law Mick Adkins of Oak Hill.
Those left to cherish her memory include her soul mate Dave Butcher, daughter LaVon Evans Butcher of Oak Hill, stepson Jason Butcher of Iowa, sister Marlene Adkins of Oak Hill, brother James "Bo" LaRocco (Pat LaRocco) of Oak Hill, granddaughter Hannah Butcher Coalson (Shane Coalson) and great granddaughter Grace Coalson of Princeton, WV, granddaughters Deborah Butcher & Mary Butcher of Oak Hill, WV and Jeff Evans of Charleston, WV (a brother in law she loved like a son), Karen Dempsey of Oak Hill (friend/ caregiver). And so many more family and friends. She will definitely be missed by all who knew her.
Jo had a 40 year career in Radiology Technology. She began her career at Montgomery Hospital and Fayette Clinic. She worked many years at Clay County Health Department, not only as an X-ray Tech, but as a dental assistant and a medical assistant. Jo entered into women’s imaging at Professional Medical Ultrasonics alongside the late Dr. Robert Pulliam. Early detection in women’s health became her passion. She enjoyed her patients, never meeting a stranger, while providing them with the best patient care.
Jo had a smile that lit up the room, a laugh that was unforgettable, and determination like no other.
We love you Josephine.

Dear Family,
For years Jo was there for my annual visit to Professional Ultrasonics. She made it almost like a social visit, asking about things going on in my life. She gave little health hints and was always smiling and made me relaxed. Her personality perfectly suited her job. I have missed her in the last years, but won’t forget her and I imagine there are many other women who feel the same. I know that she will Rest In Peace having made a difference for good on this earth.
