Nadine A. (Ritter) Busching was born in Greene, Iowa, August 25, 1926, and died December 6, 2018. She was preceded in death by: parents, Sam and Pearl Ritter; six siblings; and husband, Lyle Busching.
Celebrating her life are: daughter, DyAnn Longseth (Ron Rose); son, Terry Busching (Jacqueline); grandchildren, Erin Gentry (Shaun), Adrienne Murray (Rylen), Samuel Busching (Kristen), Audrey Kruse (Aaron), John (Jack) Busching (Ashlee), Jeffrey Busching (Selena); and nineteen great grandchildren with another on the way.
Nadine was a very giving person, placing family first. She would take the back-of-the-line assuring others were served first. She enjoyed crocheting and knitting in her spare time, making beautiful pieces of artwork. She loved music and roller skating. She worked at UNI before retiring and was an avid Panther fan.
Nadine had dementia in her final years and her extended family at Nation Cottage in Cedar Falls faithfully cared for her needs. It was here that her hidden personality began to show itself. She was feisty, sassy, sarcastic and funny as all get out. We once asked her why she was doing what she was doing. Her response was “because I can”. She adopted three baby dolls that brought her joy and helped center her in times of need.
She was always giving to others and so very selfless. Her twinkling eyes and infectious smile would light up a room. We love you, Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma and Nadine! There is a hole in our hearts!
