two sisters: Helena Teichmann and Doris Koehler
Raised in Mount Pulaski all her life she married
Hatcil Lamar, on April 14, 1951 in Lincoln. They had
celebrated 65 years of marriage before Buss passed
away on August 19, 2016.
Leota loved to be with people and could strike up a
conversation with anyone. She enjoyed hummingbirds
and her flowers, but those paled in comparison to
her love for her family, whom were her pride and
joy. Leota was a lifelong member of Mount Pulaski
At her request, cremation is to be handled by
Fricke-Calvert-Schrader Funeral Home with a private,
family graveside service to follow at a later date.
