    Alan and Tony–

    My very deepest sympathy. Your mother was not only a cousin but also a very dear friend. I didn’t get to see her often but we always enjoyed visiting.

  3. Cindy This is Carol Pretzsch Young and Maxine and I were related thru the Butterys. Emma Buttery was a sister to my grandmother Elizabeth Pretzsch. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I saw her last August at the Potter reunion. I hope we will be able to have another school reunion so you and I can visit. Carol

  4. Dear Tony, Susan, Chelsa, Ashley and Levingston family,

    Love Always,

    We loved Maxine and enjoyed our reunion visits. Along with the girl trips we took together. Maxine was always so much fun. But, I didn’t know her name was MELBA.
    Our deepest sympathy to all the family. Being a Buttery is a very large family. GOD BLESS ALL.
