Gertrude Butler Buried Here
  An invalid since she broke her hip more than two years ago, Mrs. Gertrude Butler died Saturday at the home at Lineville where she had been living.  She was born in Wayne county May 6, 1878, and lived all of her life on a farm south of Seymour until moving to town.
  Funeral was Monday afternoon at the Liggett Funeral home with Rev. Gilbert Hamilton in charge.  Burial was at Southlawn cemetery.
  Mrs. Butler was the youngest of the seven children of John and Nancy Jane Fenley and the last of the family.  She married Charles H. Butler in 1899 and he preceded her in death about 20 years ago.  Survivors are their three children, Verna Olive Crowe of Silvis, Ill., Coral Burton of Ames and Claude of Allerton.  There are three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
  She was a member of the Seymour Baptist church.
