Mary Julia Buysse

Mary was born on August 6, 1924, in Ghent, MN, to August and Rose (DePope) Labat. She made her first communion and was confirmed at St. Clotilde Catholic Church in Green Valley. On November 19, 1946, she was married to Harry P. Buysse at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall. The couple farmed north of Minneota until they retired in 1982. They built a new home in the country on their farm. Harry passed away on November 23, 1993. Mary stayed in their country home until moving into a four-plex in Minneota in 2000. She was a member of St. Edward Catholic Church Joan of Arc Society, Rosary Society, the Social Neighbor Club and Minneota Senior Center. She enjoyed gardening, square dancing, Rolle Bolle, embroidering dish towels, playing cards and baking chocolate chip cookies and special k bars for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was most passionate about spending time with her family and driving out to the farm to see them work the land and feed the animals. Mary died on Monday, July 20, 2015, at the Minneota Manor in Minneota. She is survived by Robert (and Diane) Buysse of Marshall, Patricia (and Roger) Van Nevel of Cold Spring, Richard (and Donna) Buysse of Minneota, Barbara (and Jim) Enevoldson of New Richland, numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by two brothers; Henry and Peter Labat, one sister Sophie Buysse and infant daughter Rose Marie. Memorial preferred to St. Edward Catholic School and Prairie Home Hospice.

Richard, Donna and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mary. I remember coming to visit on a few occasion and she always had a smile on her face, wisdom to share and great personality. See will be deeply missed.

Auntie Mary, you were always one of my favorites. You had so much spunk and energy and Ken and I loved your peach pies. I was the flower girl in your wedding, and I feel badly that we didn't know you had moved to Minneota Manor. Mom will be happy to see you in heaven. Love, Kathleen

Mary, you were a special aunt!!! You were a one of a kind lady. You always looked so beautiful. You said things the way it was and oh how we used to laugh at some things you said. We will miss you as you were such a gem. You will finally be with Harry. RIP my wonderful aunt.
