Annie Oakley, along with her husband, Frank Butler, moved to Dayton in December, 1924. After a short stay in an apartment, they moved to 706 Lexington Avenue. Unfortunately, Annie’s health was declining, to the point that she was unable to finish her autobiography “due to ill health”, according to the Dayton Daily News. Annie moved to Ansonia, Ohio during the summer of 1926 and cared for by a niece. Annie’s last move was to the Zemer and Broderick Home in Greenville, dying on November 3, 1926. Her husband, who was in Detroit at the time of her death, was so ill he couldn’t attend the funeral. Annie was cremated and her ashes placed in a loving cup. When Frank died eighteen days later Annie’s ashes were buried with her husband’s casket.
