Sibyl Ruby Reding Butler, age 98, of Lone Oak, passed away early
Wednesday morning in her home.

Funeral service will be at 10:00 AM, on Saturday, August 3, 2019, at the First Baptist Church of Point.  Interment will follow at Hooker Cemetery in Lone Oak.  Bro. Zack Honzell and Bro.

Open visitation at Wilson-Orwosky Funeral Home Chapel on Wednesday, July 31, 12:00 PM-4:00 PM and Thursday, August 1, from 10 AM-4 PM.

Ruby was born on March 31, 1921, in Lone Oak, to the parentage of Ruble Monroe and Sibyl Lou Vaughn Reding.  She completed 8th grade at Bois d’ Arc School in Lone Oak.  She married William Henry Butler in Greenville on January 22, 1938, at the courthouse.  She worked her whole life as a homemaker.  She was a member of First Baptist Church of Point and of the Ladies’ Sunday School Class.  She also was part of the family of the Assembly of God church in Lone Oak.  She loved Jesus with all her heart!

The love Ruby had for Christ was reflected in the life she lived before her family and friends.  All the things she enjoyed doing were all part of providing for her family. She loved quilting and sewing; she loved raising fruit and vegetables for canning and preserving.  In later years, she also enjoyed working with the cattle she and Henry bought and sold. She was a core of strength to her family. She will be greatly missed.
