Sincerest sympathy to all the Buss family. Being a high school friend of Janell’s, I have so many memories of Mrs. Buzzard! My most fondest was living with them right out of high school and all the Saturday night pizza nights. She always treated me like one of her own.

She was such a favorite lady of Pete! She loved going to high school games and cheering on her family of SP Cards. She will be missed but Pete was standing at heaven’s door to welcome her.

To Lou Ann’s family, I met Lou Ann as a teenager. Instantly enjoyed her. In more recent years she has shown nothing but kindness toward my family. Rest In Peace 🙏
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ma Buzzard, you had a great long life! I loved staying over at your house. It seemed like 1/2 the year I slept upstairs with Tom, Steve, Mike & Jerry. I always looked forward to morning pancakes and syrup. Homemade of course. Popcorn and Packers. Pizza night. Wrestling on the living room floor. I think that people, including me have goodness in their life by knowing you. I regret that I didn’t visit you like I wanted too. I have your goodness in my heart. I can still picture in my mind the routines of family traditions you made. And, I loved it when you yelled, “Knock it off!” when we got way too rough. You built one of the best families I know of. You are in the many hearts of those who were able to be in your home. Love you mom!💞

My deepest condolences to the entire Buss family! She was a great lady, always a big supporter of SP baseball. Had a great sense of humor!
