M. Verlaine Bute, 73, of Antwerp, passed away at home on Sunday, December 18, 2016.
Verlaine was born in Van Wert on September 23, 1943, a daughter of the late Pauline (Shoemaker) and Verlyn Pollock.
She worked at Franke Plating & O.N.E. Verlaine was one of the Antwerp Archer's most enthusiastic fans. She rarely missed a game and worked tirelessly for the Antwerp Athletic Boosters. She was also known to coach Ohio State football from her favorite chair. However, she was more content showing unconditional love to her family and making sure they had plenty of her cookies and ooey gooey butter cakes! Her legacy will live on in the lives of those she touched during her incredible journey of life.
