She was born June 10, 1903, to Frederick and Lena Wagenaar Buscher at Ritzville, Wash., where she attended school.
Karl Van Buren and she were married at Ritzville Oct. 23, 1927. After the marriage, they moved to Kahlotus, Wash., and lived there for a year, moving back to Ritzville. The couple farmed at Ritzville until 1957. They farmed in Tammany area from 1957 to 1963, when they moved to Lewiston.
She was an active member of Grace Lutheran Church at Lewiston and also belonged to the Tammany Pollyana Club.

Three brothers and a sister preceded her in death.
The funeral service will be held Monday at 2 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church, with burial to follow at Lewis-Clark Memorial Gardens. The Rev. Jim Higgins of Grace Lutheran Church will officiate.
