Memories Timeline


  1. Ruth was such a sweet lady , ever since I came into the family over 53 years ago, and treated me like a sister that I didn’t have.
    I will surely miss her smile and laughter and kidding around. Rest in Peace with The brother and sisters, We’ll see you by and bye. All my love, Cindy

  2. I’ll miss my Grandmaw and Autumn will miss her Great Grandmaw. While she loved cooking all year round this was grandmaw’s time of year. Getting the family together at her house for Thanksgiving and Christmas were her thing. I’ll always remember Christmas with gifts stacked to the ceiling, behind doors, or on the porch. Basically every nook and cranny of her house. She taught us that we didn’t know to spell our names, Danny is spelled Dannie, Tonya is Tonia, Darlene is Darline, Michael is Mickel, and DeAnn well somehow oddly enough spelled DeAnn. Opening a gift to hear “oh Lord, that’s not yours” or “that’s not what’s really in the box.” All the grandchildren piled in 1 bedroom waiting on Santa to come. As an adult I’ll miss taking her shopping or her driving me to doctor appointments & being my lawyer. Or to the local auction where she was everyones grandmaw, even people she just met. We were all grandmaws angels and her heart. One day soon we’ll see her again where she can “knock a knot on our head” or “whoop our behind.” Love and miss you grandmaw. Tell grandpa we said “hey”

  3. I couldn’t ask for a better Mother-in-law or grandmother to out children , David and De’Ann Rice. In the summers, when the kids were young Ruth and Geneva (her sis) would load up all the grandkids and take them to camping, Disney, or on a weekend trip. We had the best Sunday meals at her house. She had a huge meal and then send the leftovers home with all of us. She loved animals and people. She never met a stranger. She would truley worry about others problems. She would always tell us ,we were her heart. She made us feel loved. I will find this world very empty without her. She is our heart. God Bless you and keep you! You were the best.

  4. So sorry for your loss. She was such a beautiful lady both inside and out. My thoughts, prayers and love are with with your whole

  5. God has a new angel today. We love and cherish you all and will pray God grants his grace to see you through the next few days. Words seem so useless now to convey our thoughts, so we send our LOVE.
    Joseph and Laura Johnson

  6. Mawmaw I am sorry we were not there no one bothered to call David or message either of us to let us know. We are coming to visit..He is so upset about how everyone treated him about everything..I can hear you now saying “Ya’ll know you are doing him wrong”..Dave tried to get a number to call you before you got sick and that was blocked and not answered etc. I am so angry about how he has been done..he wont say anything you know Dave..He and I love how much you loved all these kids..Darlene was not the only child…I have some great pictures of you visiting us and for the record you are the only Butler that ever visited Dave and July 4th we had a good ole time sittin out by the pool with the kids of course…and you are welcome ..I loved Darlene and nearly cost me my marriage keeping Darlene in touch with Kendra..and we talked about that quite a bit..You had a shirt a dollar last food in your cabinet and someone needed it they got it..Thank you for being there for my kids and me..we got through some hard stuff..and Dave and I have a better life now..much better..Butler portion died

  7. My parents and brother, John @ Ressie, and Jimmy lived next door to the Butlers in early 60’s…was much fun to see the residents if the 4 small, frames houses on Cousins Way often found the time to sit outside on summer afternoons visiting. Laughter, smiles, jokes and the smell of pinto beans and cornbread cooking was usually in the air. Not having a bicycle of my own, often I would jump on Perry’s bike and take off with him running to get his bike. Sundays, me and Jimmy often went to church with the Butlers in St Mtn…have sooo many times allowed those wonderful memories to crowd in and take their place in the old storehouse of at 67′, I still relish those wonderfully simple days of neighbors caring about each other. This world has lost a wonderful, magnificently beautiful soul. Perry, Danny and Nita…I send heartfelt condolenses for this tremendous loss. Praying your precious memories will give you all comforts in the days ahead.

  8. We are so sorry about your loss. May the God of all comfort, continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a time, when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.
