Private services for Marie Louis Abell Butler, a descendant of the family that founded The Baltimore Sun, will be held tomorrow.
Mrs. Butler, who was 86 and lived in the Elkridge Estate Apartments in Roland Park, died Dec. 13 at Mount Sinai Hospital.
A lifelong Baltimore resident, she was born in 1904 and graduated from the Bryn Mawr School. She married John Marshall Butler, a conservative Baltimore lawyer whose successful battle to unseat veteran U.S. Sen. Millard E. Tydings in 1950 made campaign history. Mr. Butler served in the U.S. Senate for 12 years. He died in 1978.
