Mamie Mildred Butts, 97, of Cabool was born May 1, 1916 in Upton, Mo. to the late Evert and Grace (Stottlemyer) Varnell. She was called to her heavenly home on Friday, May 17, 2013 at the Kabul Nursing Home with family at her side.

On September 17, 1937, she married Ezra Butts and they shared 60 years of marriage. To this union two children were born, Elster and Charlotte.

Mildred faithfully served her Lord since the time of her salvation at the age of 10. She worked alongside her husband in his ministry doing whatever needed to be done while blessing many people with her beautiful alto voice.

Most important of all was the assurance that everyone in the family knew the Lord.
