August 04, 1993|By Staff Report

Anna Rose Butta, a supporter of charitable causes who was active in Birth Right of Annapolis and in churches in Southern Anne Arundel County, died Monday of cancer at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

The 64-year-old Harwood resident was the wife of J. Henry Butta, retired president and chief executive officer of the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. of Maryland.

The former Anna Rose Janowiak was a native of Highlandtown who was educated at Sacred Heart of Jesus Elementary School and St. Elizabeth's business school.

When a young woman, she worked as a secretary in the state's attorney's office in Baltimore.

She had been active in Holy Family Church in Davidsonville, where a memorial Mass will be offered for her at 1 p.m. tomorrow and in Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Owensville.

In addition to her husband, her survivors include three daughters, Anne M. Butta of Harwood, Mary Beth Lebherz of Frederick and Susan M. Butta of East Bridgewater, Mass.; a son, David J. Butta of Crofton; her mother, Anna Janowiak of Street, a sister, Margaret Baranowski of Street; a brother, David Janowiak of Desert Hot Springs, Calif.; and four grandchildren.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the Little Sisters of Jesus and Mary in Salisbury, or to the American Cancer Society.
