Mary Louise Button
In God's Care
Waynesville- Mary Louise Freunscht Button, age 76, of Morning Drive, entered into her glorious heavenly home on Monday, October 18, 2021.
Mary Louise was born in the summer season of July 20, 1945 in Syracuse, New York to the late Charles Otto Freunscht and the late Juanita Berkey Freunscht. After marrying the love of her life, Raymond William Button on June 11, 1966 they settled in Clearwater, Florida to make their home and begin their family. As their children grew older and graduated, Mr. and Mrs. Button made the decision to relocate to the mountains of Western North Carolina and make their home in Waynesville. Mary was a devoted homemaker and she thrived in taking close care of her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking delicious meals for her family and she could often be found “porch sittin’” on a beautiful sunny day! Mary had an unforgettable contagious laugh and she brought great happiness to those around her. Mrs. Button was an active and faithful member of Cornerstone Fellowship Church and her church community and family was an important part of her life. Her precious memory will be cherished forever by her loving family and everyone blessed to know her.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, Raymond William Button who passed away February 1, 2016; and her brother, Charles “Corky” Freunscht.
Surviving are her daughters, Lisa Marie Button Harracks of Waynesville, and Pamela Jean Button Buckley and her husband, Paul Buckley of Waynesville; grandchildren, Ryan Christopher Buckley, Eric William Buckley, and Rebecca Juanita Harracks all of Waynesville.
