WELLINGTON - Garna Palmer Butler, age 79, passed away peacefully Aug. 9, 2014 in Provo, Utah from a sudden illness, surrounded by her loving family.

Garna was a long time resident of Wellington who dedicated her life to family. She was compassionate, thoughtful, unselfish and genuine. She has been the best example, always happy, loving and a positive woman, with such a pure heart, so strong, no matter the situation or how hard. 

Garna spent time in her childhood years working on a family farm. She also worked as a lunch preparer and server at Wellington Elementary. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, quilting, embroidering, crocheting, sewing, ceramics, crafts, camping and fishing with her family.

Family was the most important to her. She enjoyed having her large, close-knit family reunited as often as possible.

She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers Willis and LaMont, grandchildren Joshua Jorgensen and Billie Jo Butler.
