Raymond S. Butner passed away at his farm home one mile east of Winona, at 6:30 a.m., Sunday, July 6th, 1947, from the effects of a heart attack, and succumbed within an hour.
He was born January 31, 1893, in Cedar County, MO, the son of Samuel S. & Elizabeth (Terry) Butner. He was reared in a Christian home and at the age of 14 years united with the Christian Church. Those who came in contact with him all through his life in both social and business relationship reaped the benefit of this Christian life.
He was united in marriage April 17, 1918 to Grace Seaman. To this union four girls were born, Samme Roberts, Eminence, MO; Johnabell Black, Alton, MO; and Jean of the home. One daughter, Vivian Violet, died in infancy. He also leaves two sons-in-law, Loyd Black and George Roberts; one grandson & three granddaughters; five sisters, Mrs. Ruby Sanders St. Louis, MO, Mrs. Goldie Harder, Portland, OR, Mrs. N. B. George, Ellington, MO, Mrs. Chas. Adams, Bartlesville, OK, & Mrs. E. W. Sloan, Puxico, MO; one brother, Stone Butner, Enterprise OR; several nieces and nephews, and a host of very dear friends who will mourn his passing for years to come.
Raymond was a character within himself. He was aggressively honest and did not tolerate dishonesty in any form. He hit the battle line of life hard. He asked no one to take over his share of the burden. He asked no succor, but fought his own battle honestly, courageously, determinedly and held the wholesome respect of all who knew and dealt with him. He was for the past 20 years an extensive stock buyer in Shannon, Reynolds, Carter, Oregon, and Howell Counties.
The funeral was held in the home and interment was in the Mt. Zion cemetery one mile from his home which he dearly loved. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.W. Bockman of Winona. A large assemblage of neighbors and friends formed the funeral cortege attesting to the wonderfully high esteem in which Raymond S. Butner and his family wre held in the community where all his fruitful years were spent. A most useful life has ended, a family's strong protector has laid down the gauntlet and surrendered to the Grim Reaper, the final curtain in life's drama has fallen in the life of Raymond Butner, and may his children and friends remember and emulate his many strong elements of character and attack the problems of life with the same degree of honesty and fearlessness as did their father.

Mrs. Grace Butner of Willow Springs passed away last Saturday. Her death was caused by injuries she sustained in a fall at her home a few days previously. She was treated in a hospital, but to no avail.
Funeral services were held at the Christian Church in Winona, her old home, Monday afternoon, with Rev. Earl Sigler giving the funeral sermon. Interment was in the Mt. Zion Cemetery.
Mrs. Butner was a daughter of the late Alonzo Seaman, a half-sister to Carl E. Seaman of Eminence and step-daughter of Mrs. Ida Seaman. She was the mother-in-law of George Roberts, formerly of Eminence. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved.
Mrs. Butner lived at Winona for years, but was living with her daughter, Mrs. Samme Roberts, of Willow Springs since the death of her husband, Raymond.
