Virgie Dell Buschmann

October 18, 1930 — November 18, 2023


Virgie Dell Buschmann (Berkeland), age 93, born on October 18th, 1930, to Ray and Lola Berkeland in Sinton, Texas, peacefully passed away on November 18th, 2023, in Athens, GA.

Virgie was a devoted wife, mother, and sister who shared her love of cooking and cherished recipes, quilting and sewing, the values of the Girl Scouts, reading and much more with her family and communities. She was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas as the oldest of six siblings with many cherished memories in this place she always considered home. It was there in Corpus Christi that she later accepted the dance request of a lifetime from Conrad Paul Buschmann, who would become her devoted husband of 52 years. They built their life together as he served with honor in the United States Marine Corps and Virgie was a homemaker caring for their two beloved children, Linda and Richard.

Virgie Buschmann is survived by her daughter, Linda MacKean, and her sister, Golden Lucille Smith. Her memory is further honored by her four grandchildren: Marshall Buschmann, Ashleigh Rentz, Amanda Chacon, and Sara Tabb, her six great-grandchildren, and her five great-great-grandchildren. Virgie was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Lola Berkeland, three sisters (Betty Griffiths, Lola Morten, and Alice Edson), one brother, James R. Berkeland, her husband, Conrad Buschmann, and her son, Richard Buschmann.

Virgie left handwritten notes which expressed her faith, with heartfelt prayers acknowledging life's trials as a means to draw closer to the Almighty Hand. She held immense gratitude for the steadfast support of military families, a sentiment that resonated throughout her life. Virgie's final resting place will be alongside her beloved husband and Veteran, "Bush," at the Houston National Cemetery. Rest well, our feisty Texas gal.
