1960, Marie R. Buller was born August 12, 1938 on the family farm west of  Kremlin, OK to John P. and Katherina Rempel Buller and passed away on Friday, May 04, 2012 at the Golden Oaks Nursing Home and is now rejoicing in the presence of Jesus her Lord and Savior.  She attended and graduated from Hillsdale High School in 1956 and from Grace Bible Institute in Omaha, Nebraska in 1960. She served for 35 years at Grace Bible Institute, later renamed Grace University.  She began her career as secretary in the Alumni Office and later did clerical work in the Development Office.  In 1989 she was honored with the Alumna of the Year Award.

Marie began her faith journey in March 1949 when she trusted Jesus as her Savior during a week of revival with Evangelist Loyal Funk at the Mennonite Brethren Church north of Enid.  Then onOctober 8, 1950, she was baptized in the farm pond east of the church by Pastor P.C. Grunau and received into church membership.  During her years in Omaha she was an active member of Faith Bible Church.  She faithfully taught the four year old Sunday school class and was involved in women’s ministry.  After retirement in 2000 and her move to Enid, Marie was an active member of Enid Mennonite Brethren Church serving in AWANA, singing in the choir, and serving as greeter.

There were many things Marie enjoyed doing.  She was a long time stamp collector.  She loved putting together difficult puzzles and mounted and framed several.  She had a special interest in Thomas Kinkade puzzles and books.  She enjoyed many types of arts and crafts.  She is most remembered for the Afghans she crocheted.  She made one for each of her twenty-five nieces and nephews with each Afghan being different and unique.  She enjoyed children as can be seen in her many years of teaching children’s Bible classes and her association with her nieces and nephews.

Survivors include her sisters Rosella Funk and husband Paul of Inman, KS, Hanna Thiesen and husband Alvin of Clovis, CA,  Sara Kroeker and husband Gerald of Fresno, CA, and Elfrieda Buller of Enid, brothers John and Dorothy Buller of Collinsville, OK, Harold and Leona Buller of Hillsdale and Alfred and Malvina Buller of Kremlin and many  nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents and an infant niece and infant nephew.  While we miss Marie, we are glad for her since now she is free of any illness and is rejoicing in the presence of Jesus, her Lord and Savior.

Memorials may be made to the Open Arms Project at the Enid Mennonite Brethren Church with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodians of the fund.

Celebration of Life service for Marie R. Buller age 73 of Enid, Oklahoma will be 2 pm Thursday, May 10 at the Enid Mennonite Brethren Church with Rev. Lynford Becker officiating.
