Louise Amanda King Butler, age 92, went home to her heavenly home on February 17, 2022. She was born on October 12, 1929. Having grown up in Rockwood, TN, she always considered it her home town no matter where life took her after graduating from Rockwood High School. The work ethic she developed in Rockwood was honed as an employee of the local J.C. Penny’s store. She married John Earl Butler, also of Rockwood, in 1952. They were married at her home church, First Baptist of Rockwood, by Pastor Carrier. Her love for the shepherding, discipleship of this Pastor and his wife was evident throughout her lifetime as she spoke lovingly of them and kept letters by them until her death. She and John Earl began their married life while he was stationed with the United States Air Force in Washington DC. God graced them with three children who testify openly of her unending mother’s love, fidelity of Christian life and contagious joy of laughter. Her faith in Christ’s atoning work for sin was at the core of life with her husband, children and biblical, local churches wherever they moved.] She is preceded in death by her parents: Paul and Susie Troxell King Sr., Brother, Eugene King, sister: Carolyn Blevins, Brother: Paul “Paulie” King Jr., brother: David King, and sister: Joanne Westveer.
