Carol Diane (Butsch) Hoyt, 85, of Mount Angel passed away on Aug. 26, 2023.
She was born on Sept. 15, 1937 to Norbert and Dorothy Butsch in Mt. Angel, Oregon, where she was the eldest of five children. She attended school at Mt. Angel Academy, graduating in 1955.
She married Jim Hoyt and lived in Portland until his death in 1977.
Carol moved back to Mt. Angel after that and spent many years working at Mount Angel Abbey’s post office and Mt. Angel Towers, gaining many friends along the way.
She loved visiting the coast with her family and especially loved lighthouses, visiting quite a few along the Oregon Coast and gathered a collection of many small lighthouses that she displayed on her wall.
Carol was preceded in death by her father and mother, Norbert and Dorothy Butsch; her brothers, Paul Butsch and Tim Butsch; and her sister, Mary Butsch.
She is survived by her brother, Mark Butsch of San Diego, numerous cousins and many nieces and nephews.
