Butts, Lynnette Ann, age 62 years of Gull Lake Saskatchewan, passed away on Thursday, February 8, 2024, in the comfort of her own home in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. The memorial service was held on Friday, February 16, 2024, at the Elks Hall in Gull Lake, with Dianne Retzlaff officiating. Honorary pallbearers were her cherished friends: Karen Whyte, Janine Vaughan, Denise Jensen, Janet Vaughan, Irene Benjamin, Carole Benjamin, Patt Busse, Diane Brown, and Sharisse Dyer.
Lynnette (Peters) Butts was born into a large family, on May 8, 1961, in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. Being the youngest of five siblings, the Peter’s resided on the family farm located in the Verlo district, taking her education in Hazlet School. Lynnette met her Highschool Sweetheart Lonny Butts in their grade 12 year of 1979, each being each other’s grad escorts. Lynnette began working at the Chinook Regional Library on July 1, 1979, having an internship right out of high school. She advanced quickly to a librarian. She worked there for over 30 years until she retired in 2011. Lynnette enjoyed the work, and the ladies there eventually became her library family.
On September 29, 1984, Lynnette was united in marriage to Lonny Butts. Their first home was a little apartment in Swift Current, ironically right beside her daughter Brenlyn and her Fiancé Ben’s current home. The couple then moved to a house in Swift Current in Riverdene, where they resided for the next four years. When Lonny finished the Rigs, he started with mid-content supply and was transferred to Gull Lake. Lynnette commuted to work from then on, driving to and from the big city. Lynnette and Lonny’s daughter Brenlyn was born on December 28, 2001, which brought immense love to Lynnette. They became best friends, bonding over their shared love of music, curling, and gardening. Being a green thumb, Lynnette enjoyed planting flower arrangements in all corners of her yard in Gull Lake, and having large flower beds. Brenlyn remembers being little and helping her mom fill up pots, watch her mom organize, and plan her vegetable garden row by row months in advance. It was always easy to buy gifts for Lynnette, as you could never go wrong with getting something for her garden. Buying the S.S. Trailer Taven in 1986, Lonny and Lynnette made Antelope Lake a second home for summer months. The family spent many summers in Antelope sitting at the beach, playing in horseshoe/bean-bag tournaments, but Lynnette’s favourite part was spending quality time with her friends.
In 2011 after retirement, Lynnette began working at 4-Star Ventures in Gull Lake. She became a part of the 4-Star family, working alongside her good friends taking business trips to Texas, and having fun along the way. After work, Lynnette would always visit her best friend Karen Whyte, to which they shared a close friendship.
Lynnette is survived by Lonny, her husband of 39 and a half years, her beloved daughter Brenlyn; brother Dwayne (Brenda) Peters of Medicine Hat, AB, and his children Darius, Natasha, and Janelle; sisters Karen (Ken) Bushfield and their children, Chad and Chelsea of Calgary, AB, Vicki Peters and partner Brian of Medicine Hat, AB, and her children Toni and Travis, Charlene Jollymore and her children, Ashlee and Breann of Cochrane, AB; brother-in-laws Perry Butts and his daughter Sierra of Red Deer, AB, Rocky (Tammy) Butts, and their children Lane and Joel of Gull Lake, SK; as well as second generation nieces and nephews, Conor, Owen, Anika, Madison, Russel, Walter, and Arissa.
Lynnette was predeceased by her parents Ernie in 1995, and Ruth in 2010; her daughter Lonnette Butts in 2000; sister-in-law Jane Peters in 2012; brother-in-law Greg Jollymore in 2018; and nephew Dustin Peters in July of 2023.
