"Akron, Iowa Register May 24, 1917

Mrs. J.C. Button one of Akron's oldest and most beloved residents was called to the Master's Home Sunday evening May 20, 1917. She had been in failing health for a couple of years particularly since the death of her husband on August 7, 1916 since which time she has resided with the family of her daughter, Mrs. R.J. Hauck. About two weeks ago she became seriously ill and despite all that loving care and medical skill could accomplish pneumonia developed and her previously weakened condition and advanced age, 74 years, could not long withstand the added affliction.
L. Carrie Sheppard was born in the state of Ohio near Morristown, Belmont County in the year 1843. She lived at her birthplace until her fifth year, when her folks moved to Morgan County, Ohio, where they resided until 1850 at which time they located in Cumberland County, Illinois. There she finished her schooling and afterward taught in the schools of that county until 1861 when the family came to Iowa locating at Knoxville. They then moved to Maysville, Franklin County, Iowa where she also engaged in school teaching up to the time of her marriage to Joshua C. Button on November 7, 1865.
After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Button made their home at Alden, Iowa where they were located for four years and then moved west to Lincoln County, South Dakota, the Dakota Territory, taking a homestead and preemption claim a few miles southwest of Canton experiencing the early day trials of pioneers in a newly settled country. After living there a short time they came to Akron, Iowa, which has since remained the family home. Four children were born to this union, Greeley, Orley, William and May of whom the two former have passed on. There are left to mourn the loss of an ever kind and loving mother, one son William A. Button of Kansas City, Missouri and one daughter Mrs. May L. Hauck of Akron along with one sister Mrs. Mary Addis of Ponca, Nebraska, one brother Frank Sheppard of Wallace, South Dakota and eleven grandchildren and one great grandson. A host of staunch friends mingle their sorrow with and unite in sympathy to the bereaved family.
Mrs. Button was a noble, consistent Christian woman throughout the more than three score and ten years allotted her. She was one of the pioneer workers in the Akron Methodist Episcopal Church and a charter member of the W.C.T.U. of this city to both of which for many years she gave unstintingly of her time and services. While in active health it was her great ambition to help others in sickness and distress and many are the memories cherished of her kindly deeds and words of sympathy and encouragement, but during the past two years of her sickness and affliction she has been hindered in her desires for helpful service, much to her regret.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon in the Akron Methodist Episcopal Church Rev. W.W. Tyrrell in his sermon paying tender tribute to her beautiful character and useful life. A goodly number of friends and neighbors assembled to pay a final tribute of respect. Interment was made beside her departed husband and two sons in Riverside Cemetery.
Relatives who came from a distance were W.A. Button of Kansas City, Missouri; Mrs. Mary Addis of Ponca, Nebraska; and Mrs. A.G. Button and son, James of Highmore, South Dakota; Mrs. Rose Treglia of Sioux City, a friend of the family came to attend the funeral.
