Marian A. Buss

Marian A. Wenner Vince Buss, 95, of Emmaus, died June 9, 2021, at home surrounded by her family. The fourth of 15 children, she was a daughter of the late Clarence W. and Helen S. (Wieder) Wenner.

She relished time with family and friends, punctuating boisterous gatherings with her joyful laugh and cheeky grin. With a mind like a steel trap, she was the referee of stories of the homestead and childhood to ensure stories were not embellished to the point of fiction. One of her passions in life was flowers, helping to run the Buss Greenhouse with her husband Asher on Route 29/100 for four decades. She traveled the globe taking spins around casinos, rides on camels, cruises through fjords and treks around world capitals. She was generous to a fault, until it came to pinochle, canasta, rummy, Skip-Bo, bowling and board games. She played to win, even with her great-grandkids. Odds are she whispered “Quaker Meeting!” before she left us.

She is survived by sons, David and Frank Vince; brothers, Dale, Richard and Kent Wenner; sisters, Helen DiMora, Annette Steigerwalt and Sandra Grimes; granddaughters, Kirsten Beuchert, Katherine Vince, Adrienne Lukity; five grandchildren; kipfels and zucchini bread recipes.

Services are private at the convenience of the family at Zionsville Evangelical Lutheran Church. Arrangements were made by the Schantz Funeral Home, P.C., Emmaus.
