Roswitha Susanna Busse

March 12, 1939November 17, 2020

Roswitha Susanna Busse (Rosi), 81, of Tallahassee, Florida, passed away peacefully on November 17, 2020. Rosi was preceded in death by David George Busse, a retired Captain in the US Air Force and her husband of 60 years.

Rosi was born in Trier, Germany, and had many fond memories of her childhood and teenage years there. She was able to return again in 2019, and was fortunate to be able to visit with many family members while she was there. She loved crocheting and knitting, reading very thick books on history and mysteries, walking daily, and visiting with her children and grandchildren. She moved to Tallahassee in 2018 from Orange Park, Florida where she lived 40 years, having lived previously in many places throughout the United States and Germany.

Rosi is survived by her brother, Norbert Bicko; sister, Margaret Tracy; numerous nieces and nephews; her daughters, Yvonne Salfinger (Max) and Michelle Huff (Michael); her son, Kenneth Busse (Lynn); her five grandchildren, Christina Busse, Eric Busse, Sarah Nupen, Stephanie Huff, and Emily Huff; and one great grandson, Cecil, all of whom will miss her dearly.

A small family service will be held at a later time at the Jacksonville National Cemetery where her husband David is also interred.

I will always remember Mrs. Busse. She welcomed me into her home as Yvonne's friend many years ago. She let us make messes in her kitchen either cooking fudge or boiling crabs Yvonne and I caught in the bay. She took us to the beach many times where we had such good times. Yvonne, Kenny and Michelle were so blessed to have such a wonderful Mom and and also a great Dad. My heart goes out to Yvonne and her family. Love to you all!

Sincerest sympathy to Yvonne and Max and to Yvonne's siblings and their families. Losing your Mother is one of the hardest of times in life. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May wonderful memories of times past sustain you at this time.
