dau of A.J. & A. Marley

Mrs. Edna Butterfleld, wife of L. K. Butterfleld, formerly a Clarinda lady, died Thursday, July 27, 1916, at a hospital in Wheatland, Wyo., about thirty miles from her home, which was on a ranch near Lingle, Wyo. It not being known that she was afflicted with a fatal ailment until about the time of her death, her demise came as a surprise as well as a shock to her relatives and friends. Among those who mourn are numerous of her school time and other friends in Clarinda. The late Mrs. Butterfleld was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Marley, and was born in Clarinda, Sept. 3, 1882. As Edna Marley she grew to womanhood in this city. Here she was educated in the public schools. Nov. 5, 1906, she was married at the home of her grandfather, the late J. A. Marley, in Clarinda, to Burl Whitnah, who, a year later, was killed by a live electric light wire while at work at his occupation for an electric light plant at Santa Cruz, Calif. His remains were brought back to Clarinda for burial. This week Burl Whitnah's brother, Penton Whitnah,
was killed in Clarinda by a fall from a tree while at work for the Iowa Telephone company. On the 7th of July, 1910, the then Mrs. Whitnah married married L. K. Butterfleld of Knoxville, who had been an engineer in Clarinda for the Lee electric plant. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Butterfleld moved to Fort Dodge where they spent three years, and about one year ago they moved to Wyoming, she going to Lingle in July, and he in August. They were desirably located on a claim near Lingle, and near them were Mrs. Butterfleld's parents, also happily located on a ranch of their own. The world was bright and happy for Mrs. Butterfleld, relatives and friends were gladdened by her presence among them; she was looking forward to a continuance of contentment in life, when the Death Angel called for her. Thus it is with life! Human expectations often fail of realization, and often are relatives and friends called upon unexpectedly to mourn, as in this case. Mrs. Butterfleld died as she had lived, a member of the Baptist faith. Years ago in Hendricks county, Ind., while visiting her grandmother, the late Mrs. John Jones, she joined the Friendship Baptist church in the community in which her grandmother lived. The remains of Mrs. Butterfleld were brought to Clarinda, and reached here last Friday night accompanied by the father, A. J. Marley; the husband, L. K. Butterfleld, and Edwin Marley, the twin brother of the deceased. The remains were taken to the undertaking rooms of the J. B. M. Pruitt Furniture and Undertaking company, where they were kept until Saturday, when they were conveyed to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bailey, on South Fourteenth street, for the funeral, Mrs. Bailey being an old-time friend of the deceased. The funeral service was held Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Abram S. Woodard, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church of this city. Interment was in the Clarinda cemetery in the Marley family burial lot. Mrs. A. J. Marley, the mother of the deceased, although in better health than when she left Clarinda, was not in good enough health to come to Clarinda to the funeral, and another relative who could not come was the infant daughter of the deceased, a fine child, named like her mother, Edna.
