Rebecca Faye Butler

Died: Dec. 31, 2012

Rebecca Faye Greene Butler, age 73, of Mosheim died Monday at Takoma Regional Hospital.

Mrs. Butler was a longtime member of Big Springs Baptist Church, the mother church of Brown Springs Baptist Church of Mosheim, where she was a much-loved Sunday School and Bible School teacher for many years.

Mentored by Dr. Hal Henard and Dr. Nathan Horner, she was a devoted nurse who worked more than 30 years at Laughlin Memorial Hospital, which was founded by her uncle, Dr. Cecil B. Laughlin, in 1939.

The family stated she was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother, who will be remembered for her great love of children. Throughout her life, children of her community and family found her home a welcoming place filled with laughter and love.

Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law: Lori and Tom Dunn of Mosheim; one granddaughter: Megan Dunn of Mosheim; two sisters: Elizabeth Rizer of Georgia and Darlene and Kim Justis of the Mount Carmel community; a special niece: Carol Justis; two sisters-in-law: Marie Conner of Tusculum and Joan Greene of New Jersey; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years: James Butler; one daughter: Nita Butler; parents: Enoch and Thula Laughlin Greene; one sister: Aretta Clowers; and two brothers: Robert Greene and Wayne Greene.

The Butler family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. Wednesday at Doughty-Stevens Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Brown Springs Baptist Church with the Rev. Richard Long and the Rev. Roger Cutshall officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Chris Barkley, Will Barkley, Ken Weems, Ron Metcalfe, Ray Greene, David Greene, Charles Jessie and Jamie Clowers.

Honorary pallbearers will be Warren Knox, Gary Durr, George Jessie, Jeff Justis, Kim Justis, Craig Rizer and Stacy Rizer.

The family expressed a special thanks to those whose compassion and caring were immeasurable: family friend Ruth Matthews; the nursing staff of Holston Valley Medical Center, and the members of "our Takoma Regional Hospital family."

Memorial donations may be made to Big Springs Baptist Church, 78 Brown Springs Lane, Mosheim, TN 37818.
