Arla June Butler, 82, passed away peacefully October 13, 2019, her loving husband, Wayne R. Butler, was by her side. She was born June 10, 1937 in St. Anthony to Wilford W. and Winnie D Law Jenkins.
She lived a full life in southeast Idaho and raised six children. Sewing and gardening were some of her favorite activities. She always enjoyed reading and listening to current music on the radio. The pride and joy of her life were her six children... Bryce, Nancy, Lynn, Annette, Calvin and Gary.
Through the years Arla nurtured many friendships where her love of life influenced all those friends, neighbors and family. She loved The Lord and enjoyed attending The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Happily, she accepted many church callings and faithfully attended to those assignments. Arla lived getting together with family and friends, this brought Arla a lot of joy. She proudly talked of her 32 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
She sewed dozens of wedding gowns and altered more pieces of clothing than she cared to count. She always found a creative way to make a few dollars of her own helping customers where she greeted them with her sweet smile. Although her husband is in good physical health he will miss his darling Arla and sometimes play a Frank Sinatra tune while thumbing through her photo albums.
