Mabel Petersen Butler passed away at the age of 89 years on October 26, 1998.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Virge M. Butler in 1974; a child, Noel Peter Butler in 1957; and a great grand child, Brianna Lynn in 1987.

She was born October 11th, 1909 in Manti, Utah, and graduated from Snow College in Ephraim, Utah.

Her family moved to the Granite area and she worked as a stenographer in Salt Lake City, where she met her husband. They were married in the Manti Temple on October 9, 1934. She was a homemaker, and companion to her husband and was able to serve an LDS mission with him in Central America and Mexico.

She is survived by her three children, Petrea Lynn Reading, of Geneva, Switzerland, Beverly Jean Loder of Tustin, California, and Bryan V. Butler of Spring, Texas; as well as sixteen grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren.

A viewing will be held Monday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at Memorial Estates Mortuary 5850 So 900 E. Funeral services will be at the Holladay 14th Ward Chapel at 4917 Viewmont St., Holladay Ut., with burial at the Murray City Cemetery.

Mabel loved life and learning, especially music and serving in various callings in the LDS Church. Wherever she lived she soon formed a chorus or choir and enjoyed teaching and performing beautiful music. She was always an inspiration to her many friends and her family and will be dearly missed.
