Mattie Marie was born Sept. 1, 1938 to the late Guy Garrison Sr. and Nora Lee Warren. She married Martin Chester Butler in 1955. They had 3 children. She was a homemaker and loved her children dearly. She was always busy and loved to cook for her family. She loved the outdoors, fishing, gardening and long drives in the country. She was a member of the Church of God and boldly professed her faith to everyone she met. She loved and adored her family, she covered them in prayers daily, and was the family prayer warrior. All she wanted was for her family to know the lord as their personal savior. We rise up and call her blessed, we all love and adore her. She has left a big hole in our hearts and lives. But the family knows without a doubt she is at peace in her heavenly home and will see her again.
