Born in Bremer County, Iowa
Resided in Denver, Iowa


Pauline Buss, 92, of Denver Iowa, passed away early Friday morning, May 24, 2019 at Unity Point Health-Allen Hospital in Waterloo, Iowa.

Pauline was born on November 17, 1926, in Bremer County, Iowa, the daughter of Hedwig (Boeckmann) and Louis Hoppenworth. She was raised in Denver where she attended school and graduated from Denver High School in 1944. She then worked for the Denver Produce Company as an egg candler and also for Morris Printing in Waterloo. On March 24, 1946, Pauline was united in marriage to Elmer “Bob” Buss in Denver. The couple lived and raised their family on their farm south of Denver. Pauline was a farm wife and also got into upholstery, and eventually started her own business called Pauline’s Upholstery. Bob died in September of 1987, and Pauline continued to live on the farm until February of 2019, when she entered NewAldaya Lifescapes in Cedar Falls.

Pauline was a member of Saint Paul United Church of Christ and the American Legion Auxiliary Post #653, both in Denver. She enjoyed playing cards, gardening, sewing, jig-saw puzzles, and collecting salt & pepper shakers. However, spending time with family, especially her grand kids, gave her the most joy!
