December 24, 1934 – May 7, 2017

Charlene L. Butler, 82, passed away Sunday evening at her home in Scottsboro surrounded by her loving family. Ms. Butler was preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Maggie Knudson Nystel; her loving husband of 45 years, William Eugene Butler; her daughter, Teri Dear; and her granddaughter, Shannon Stenson.

Left to cherish her precious memory is her daughter, Karen R. Stenson (Michael); her son, Gary D. Butler; 5 grandchildren, Jody Cozzi, Sheryl Anderson, Sherie Owens, Shelly Booth, and Greg Stenson; 8 great grandchildren; and several other relatives and friends.

“Poppi”, as most family and friends called her, loved life and family and all things beautiful. She believed in God’s love and was a faithful member of Bayshore Baptist Church in Bradenton, FL where she enjoyed Sunday School and all the ministerial activites the church provided her. She really enjoyed shopping, getting her nails done, and playing Bingo. Poppi always remembered each child’s birthday with a special card and the exact amount of money to match their age. She always attended their social events. Charlene Butler was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her!

A memorial service honoring her life will be announced in the near term future. She will be laid to rest beside her dear husband in Bay Pines National Cemetery in Bay Pines, FL. Please sign her guest registry at
