I love you, Rhoda
She was uplifting and always had a smile for you.
She always strived to bring out the best in you when you had music class, it was always a fun class. When I was little in grade school , i might have talked just a bit when I shouldn&t, but Mrs. Buss always had me and others in her class she knew what was going on sitting at the piano, because she had eyes in the back of her head.
I along with many others believed her, crazy huh but it was Mrs. Buss and some how in a young child&s mind it made sense. She will always be a favorite memory for me and have a special place in my heart. I was a lucky child for growing up in Wolcott and having Mrs. Buss for a teacher and inspiration for my appreciation in music. May God bless you all.
We are so sorry to hear about Rhoda&s passing. What a tremendous
bearing she had on our lives. She was a truly a mentor to everyone
she met, and will be sorely missed.
Rhoda was our piano teacher and friend. My mother was a life long member of the church and community. My parents sang in the church choir with Rhoda. She played the organ at my wedding. Just a few thoughts how Rhoda and Norman filled our lives. Sympathy to you and I know that there is a Choir singing up there now. Now they have a director too. The Busses and the other church members who have gone on before are having a great reunion.
Love to all,
Lynn and Kathy
I taught at Reynolds many years ago with Rhoda. When my husband was gone for a week at a time or there was bad weather Rhoda would ask me to stay with her. My dog Bridget loved her so much. She use to sleep with her instead of me on our visits.
After I moved to Connersville and had three children she always kept in touch.
She would record her ragtime music and send the tapes to the three children and me. We so loved her music. My youngest son did a special project for school on the history of ragtime music, about Rhoda and played one of the tapes.
I have so many fond of memories of Rhoda. She was a great lady and always made me roar with laughter.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I will play one of her tapes this week in memory of her.
