 A birthday celebration for Venice Nielsen Buttars was held recently at Maddox Restaurant with all of her family.

Venice was born in Weston, Idaho, 80 years ago on Sept. 16, to loving parents Russell and Vera Nielsen. Her siblings are Clair Russell (deceased), Loralyn (deceased) and Judith Nielsen Stevenson.

She grew up in the Weston area and graduated from West Side High School. She married Morgan Buttars in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in 1952. They began their life together living in Weston Canyon and eight years later moved to Weston. Their farming enterprise was “Dry and Irrigated Farms.” They were a team in working hard to raise crops and their family. Mom was always willing to move pipe, hoe sugar beets, or drive grain truck. It was a good life as they raised their four children, Sherry (Kevin) Phillips, Brad (Laurie), Stacy (Corrie) Keller and Jay (Kristin). They retired and moved to Preston in 1993. Morgan passed away in 2005. Venice has 16 living grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

Venice has many friends from her and Morgan’s years of wintering in St. George. She has been an active LDS Church member through the years, particularly through her ability to play and accompany others on the piano. She has participated in member locater missionary service and enjoys attending the temple with friends. Her posterity is recipients of her beautiful and meticulous handwork items, especially beautiful embroidered dishtowels.

She is a positive influence to all. Happy Birthday, Mom! We love you!
