Janet Butler Kwan

May 25, 1931 — August 18, 2023

Our wonderful and hardworking mom and granny, Janet, passed away peacefully on a beautiful August morning due to old age.  Janet was born and raised in Salt Lake City as the oldest of four children of Marjorie Valone Beveridge and Malcom Dale Butler.  She met and married Patton Kwan in 1962 after meeting in the restaurant industry.  They continued their journey through the restaurant world, owning and operating the Highway Café. They later owned the Kowloon Café in West Valley City, which was their favorite and most successful restaurant. They took over the Kowloon from dear cousin Charlie Wong in 1973 and retired in the early 1990s.  They remained close to Charlie and his family the rest of their lives.  At the Kowloon, Pat and Janet made many friends and wonderful memories with both customers and employees. Janet loved going to the family cabin seeing many great sunrises and sunsets from the mountains.  She also loved traveling with family and enjoying time with her children and grandchildren.   Janet leaves behind two children, Colleen and Justin, and her brother Mike Butler (Cathi). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Brady and Kirra (Justin), and many cousins, nieces and nephews and a very special uncle, Fulton Kwan. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Pat, sister Ann Butler Henderson, and her youngest brother Mac Butler.
Friends and family may join us for a viewing and visitation August 30th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Memorial Redwood Mortuary and Cemetery, 6500 S. Redwood Rd. A private dedication of grave will be carried out at a later time by brother Mike Butler.
Many thanks and hugs to the staff at Legacy Village Taylorsville and Renew Hospice for their kind hearts while she was in their care.
