Rhea Forbes Butler
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 30, 1903
Davis County
Utah, USA
Death: Aug. 3, 1999
Box Elder County
Utah, USA

Daughter of Florence "Flora" Caroline Ray and Thomas George Forbes.

Wife of John (Jack) Herbert "Herb" Butler.

Rhea was known by her friends as the "Energizer Bunny". Early in her life, she was a recipient of the very first pacemaker device implanted at Utah. It seemed her energy and enthusiasm for life went on and on!

Rhea was always sweet, kind and helpful. A very avid sports fan, she watched every game she could. Years of service to her family, church and community were unmatched and, ever cheerful, she seemed to love everyone. The feelings were mutual and she remained optimistic to the end.

This is especially amazing, because her life had not been easy. When a young girl, she found her father, accidently shot by his own hunting gun, over a snowy fence on their property. The story would bring a cloud of mist to her eyes even 60 years later.

As a young mother, she also bore the loss of two infants and then, was widowed for 18 years, and burdened with the loss of a beloved grandson in her 89th year.

She is buried alongside her grandson.

Her husband, known as "Jack" and "Herb", was buried in Kaysville, Davis, Utah, alongside the two young children, whom they lost in infancy.
