Mrs. Lena A. Butts, for seventeen years a teacher in the Wilmette public schools, passed away at her home in Evanston, Thursday evening, January 10.
Mrs. Butts taught for a number of years at the Central school, then, following the erection of the Laurel school, went there as the third grade teacher. In these years abut [sic] six hundred children have been members of her classes.
"Mrs. Butts passed all the qualifications of a superior teacher," according to Superintendent Harper. "She was well prepared for her work, a good student of education and was always in search of new things that would make her work more efficient. She had the temperament of a real teacher, was always pleasant, calm and unruffled amid the , at times, trying conditions of school room life, and her children responded by quietly, orderly and efficiently going about their daily duties. She inculcated studious habits and her children found the work in the upper grades easier because of the year spent with her. The Wilmette schools have sustained a real loss in her death."
