  1. I’m so very sad to hear this news today. Sister Angela was the principal at St Francis in KC and I taught there with her. She was a very good friend, a wonderful teacher and I have many many wonderful memories of the years we were together. She was so good to me. She’s always had a piece of my heart and will continue to do so. My prayers and sympathy to her family and many friends.

  2. I was so blessed to have known her when I was little. Her brother is my grandpa Bus or C.D. Buser. I remember seeing her at the family weddings, holidays, and my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. She was always so sweet and so full of life. She will be dearly missed. She is home now. RIP Great Aunt Pat 😢
