M. Verlaine Bute

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.   

She will be sadly missed by her husband, Lynn, whom she married Nov. 24, 1962; her children, Marcia (Steve) Bennett, Melissa (Andre Walters) Copsey & Michael (Jennifer) Bute; grandchildren, Tiffany (Justin) Reichley, Tanner (Loni Walk) & Trenton (Carli Ayers) Copsey, Justin (Brooke Zuber) & Jarett (Gabrielle Zuber) Bute; step grandchildren, Steve (Jennifer) Bennett & Kohen Walters & great grandsons, Landon Bennett & Andrew "AJ" Reichley. 

Her sister, Starley Kohler also preceded her in death.

Service is Thursday, 11 am with viewing 10 - 10:45 am at Antwerp United Methodist Church, 202 E. River Street.

Viewing is also Wednesday, 2-4 & 6-8 pm at Dooley Funeral Home, 202 W. River Street, Antwerp.
