Cartha Von Busch

Nov. 3, 1923 — Dec. 10, 2013

Cartha Maxine (Morgan) Von Busch was born to Ernie and Alice Baum on Nov. 3, 1923, in Augusta, Kans. She passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013, in Cameron Park, at the age of 90.

Cartha grew up and attended school in Winfield, Kans. Immediately after marrying Harvey R. “Dick” Morgan in Wichita, Kans., in 1946, they moved to California. They lived and raised their two children in several locations in Southern and Northern California. Cartha was preceded in death by her husband, Dick Morgan, in 1965. She married Benjamin Von Busch in 1970 in Fullerton, Calif. They then lived many years in Winfield, where they owned a Christian bookstore. She was also preceded in death by Ben Von Busch in 1990, and then she returned to California to be near family.

Cartha enjoyed sewing and was an avid quilter. She was blessed with good health and enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Just five weeks before her death, she was thrilled when her entire family gathered for a big party to celebrate her 90th birthday. Cartha will be remembered by family and friends as a woman who loved Jesus and desired to share her faith with others. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Miriam Hoyt. She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Carol and Tom Lindberg of Wichita; her daughter and son-in law, Karen and Gary Hunter of Rescue, Calif.; her son and daughter-in-law, Roger and Dana Morgan of Wrightwood, Calif.; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

A family graveside service was held on Monday, Dec. 16, at the Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno, Calif. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Evangelical Free Church of America for the Cartha Von Busch Memorial Fund, to be used for Global Fingerprints, a program to support orphans internationally: https://my.efca.org/NetCommunity/SSLPage.aspx?pid=359
