It is with a very heavy heart that I report the passing of Rev. Deena Butta, who was also known as Mekhatsenyt as a Shemsu of the House of Netjer Kemetic Orthodox Temple, to the beautiful West late Sunday afternoon, January 27, 2013, after a short and very difficult illness.
Rev. Deena (Mekhat) was a tireless priestess of Isis and many other goddesses, and gave much of her life and time and effort to assisting the Chicago goddess community, and the global goddess community, as an archpriestess of the Fellowship of Isis. She worked in interfaith efforts for most of her life, and touched many people with her selfless service and constant dedication.
Rev. Deena has the singular distinction of being the most genuinely kind person I have ever known in my lifetime, and she was a friend of mine for more than 20 years. While the West has gained a beautiful daughter, our world will be less bright without her, and she will be deeply missed.
Journey safely upon the roads of the West, Mekhat. May Yinepu guide you true, may Nebt-het provide comfort to those who weep, and may you shine justified before Wesir as a star in the vault of Nut forever.
