Marcella Rose (Mulrooney) Busse, age 92, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 28, 2017. She will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 67 years, Floyd “Buzz”; children, Terry (Linda) Busse, Jann (Scot) Van Airsdale and daughter-in-law, Laurel Busse; grandchildren, Theran and Derek Busse, Kristen Busse, Natalie Busse, Ben and Drew Van Airsdale; and 5 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by son, Tim Busse; parents, Thomas Francis and Daisy Belle (Edge) Mulrooney; and her sister, Grace Nachreiner.

Marcy grew up in the Mt. Hope area until she went to secretarial school in Madison where she met Buzz. They made their lives together and raised their children in Verona while she worked with adults and children through the libraries. She and Buzz enjoyed travel throughout their lives including Thailand, Morocco, Jamaica, Spain, China and retired for 24 winters in Orange Beach, AL. Her favorite place was Porters Lake in Wautoma, WI. For 62 years, she loved this special place and enjoyed it with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and her Porters Lake family. She spent numerous hours of late sitting on the porch watching the birds.
