"Charles Booton Dies in Omaha Hotel Room"

"Funeral services for Charles Clarence Booton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Booton of Audubon, were held at the Methodist church, Blair, Nebr., after he was found dead in an Omaha hotel room about 8 p.m. Friday by an employee of the hotel."

"It was first reported that Mr. Booton had evidently fallen asleep with a lighted cigarette in his room and, then, upon waking had tried to get out of the smoke-filled room, failing because he went to the closet door instead of the door leading our of his room. It is understood however, that he was overcome before he could move very far, although the closet door was reported open."

"Mr. Booton was born February 16, 1913 in Audubon. He was graduated from Audubon high school, and in 1935 married Miss Lois Williamson, of Maryville, Mo."

"Survivors include his wife, four children, Billy 15, twin daughters, Janice and Joyce, 14, and Barbara, 12; his parents; one brother, Robert R. Booton, Audubon; and five sisters, Mrs. L.J. (Marjorie) Larsen, Guthrie Center, Mrs. Howard (Martha) Lacy, Audubon, Mrs. Glen (Bette) Bancroft, Des Moines, Mrs. Dick (Pat) Ross, Gray, and Miss Marilyn Booton, Audubon."

"His grandmother, Mrs. J.C. Boyer, Des Moines, also survives."

"Mr. Booton was a member of the Methodist church. During World War II, he served for two years in the Navy."

"Br. Booton was a feed salesman, making his home in Blair, located about 40 miles north of Omaha. At one time, he and a partner had a feed store at Blair."

"Burial was at Audubon."
