Community Mom celebrates 100 fabulous year dies at 102

Community Mom, Willie C. Butler, known as “Mother Dear” was born Aug. 11, 1913.

With God’s Grace now she celebrates 100 years of life. She is the matriarch to five generations. Ms. Butler is an inspiration to her children, grands, great and great-great grand-children.

Butler has been a resident in her community in Dillard homes for over 70 years. Children knew for having a neighborhood store house, selling snacks and freeze cups. Butler was born in Fort Gaines, Ga., and raised on a farm, her parents owned over 450 acres of land. Fort Gaines, is where she met her husband Charlie C. Butler. They were married and later moved to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Their union produced three children. Charlie (Peter) Butler, Cora Tynes and Eddie Butler.

After sharing so many happy years with her husband, unfornunately in 1984 Willie B. Butler lost her husband and best friends to lung cancer.

Butler’s hobby besides cooking, was fishing, Sun-Sentinel was called out to do a report several years ago because she caught what some may call a walking cat fish. She still remembers that and also has the clipping to show.

Butler celebrated her 100th Birthday with family and friends. It was a very special day to remember. Over two hundred people attended.
