Vonna Davis Butler

Vonna Davis Butler, 89, of Twin Falls, Idaho passed away surrounded by her loving family April 5, 2018.

Vonna was born in Twin Falls on November 3, 1928 to John and Lorene Davis. She was the 6th of 8 children. Vonna grew up in Twin Falls and eventually met her husband, Philip Butler while he was stationed in Sun Valley. They were married July 29, 1946 and were later sealed for eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in July of 2016.

Vonna was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Philip and son-in-law, Grant Maughan. She is survived by her four children, Lorrie (Gary) Garvoille, Lynette Maughan, Michael (Hiroko) Butler and Shauna (Troy) James; 19 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren as well as her sister, Joann (Gene) Jones and a brother, Lyle (Peggy) Davis.

Vonna was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a strong testimony of its truthfulness. She served in many callings including Relief Society President and Young Women President but her favorite calling was in the primary teaching young children.

Vonna will always be remembered for her many talents. She was an excellent seamstress, crafting and gardening. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends. We know she is having a glorious reunion with her husband and loved ones who have passed on and we are grateful that she is free from her pain and suffering now.

I was so sorry to hear of Vonna's passing. As you may or may not know I am Helen Carlsen Wark's oldest daughter. Helen is Vonna's cousin.
When my husband and I were in the 13th ward we were Phil and Vonna's home teachers, so we seen them often. It was a great privilege to have that time together. We have since moved and live in Rupert, ID.
She was a very loving and kind person throughout her life and will surely be missed by all.
I planned to attend the funeral to show our support and visit with relatives, but that day we happened to have three appointments that could not be cancelled.
Please accept our condolences and hope to see some of you soon.
