Cindy Butler, RIP

TEXARKANA, ARK–Cindy Lu Butler Stevens, who used the name Cindy Butler during her sporadic movie career, died here May 26. She was a 64.

MSTies will remember her as Leslie Ann Walker in the movie in episode 1006- BOGGY CREEK II: AND THE LEGEND CONTINUES.

The funeral home in Texarkana posted this:

Cindy was an actress and model early in life, and later a homemaker. She was known for her roles in “The Town That Dreaded Sundown,” “Boggy Creek II And The Legend Continues” and “Grayeagle.” She lived and told unbelievable stories of a life full of adventure and wonder. She was the life of the party and a natural comedian. She had a big heart and a great love for animals.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

    Leslie Ann Walker? All I know about her is she’s a good friend of Tanya Yazzie; my prize student.

    RIP!

    BOGGY CREEK II is one of my special favorite episodes and so I am particularly sad to learn of Leslie Ann’s passing. It is unfortunate that she is viewed as not-the-Tanya in some MSTie circles. I hope her passing was peaceful and painless. RIP

    Only a total dickweed would mix up an actresses’ character name with her real name on a eulogy. Mea culpa. RIP Cindy Butler

    Only 65 years old. Too young. Hard to believe she played Pierce’s student when in real life she was married to him. I guess that would make her Chuck Pierce’s stepmother. Ewww. They eventually divorced. I guess she got tired of pork and beans and bologna sandwiches.

    Waaaaay too young.

    I remember her character best for going on a research expedition with some of the most impractical outfits I’ve ever seen. When she said she’d heard the purpose of the trip was to look for “some kind of wald man” I found her believability rating to be very high.

    Wow, she hardly looks anything like the “staring out of a charred log” from BG2:TLC
