Carol F. (Bushaw) Buegel, 87, longtime Fargo resident, passed away at the Eventide  Linden Tree Assisted Living Facility in Moorhead, MN on February 18, 2014; under the care of Red River Valley Hospice and her loving sons, John and Donald.

Carol was born on December 25, 1926 in Grand Forks, ND to Owen Henry and Lillian Viola (Brinton) Bushaw, the sixth of ten children. Carol graduated from Central High School in Grand Forks; later attending Akers Business College.  She worked for many years for Dr. Ralph Leigh in his Grand Forks office as a stenographer.  Carol was married to Hermann Frederick (Fritz) Buegel, Jr. on August 19, 1947, in Grand Forks, ND.

Carol enjoyed playing bridge, gardening, traveling, and picnics in the park with family and friends. Carol was known for her skill as a gracious hostess and for her great cooking. She left behind many cherished recipes that will live on after her at future family gatherings. Carol will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her two sons, John (Arlette) Buegel of Fargo, ND; Donald (Huyen) Buegel and their two daughters Lesley Anne and Ashley Kate of Moorhead, MN; sister Colleen Hauser of Fargo, ND; brother Dewey (Pat) Bushaw of Denver, CO, as well as many nieces and nephews in Fargo/Moorhead, and scattered across the country.

    Beaverton ORI am so sad to hear of Carol’s passing. She was such a great friend to my dad (Warren Gutaw) and a great friend to our family. My dad loved Carol and enjoyed their many fun times as she was always up for a new adventure. One of the great things about Carol was that she always made people feel so important by asking lots of questions and seeming to be delighted by whatever we told her we had been up to lately. I’ll especially miss Carol’s great cooking, mischievous smile and hearty laugh. I wish I could be there to say goodbye.

    Carmel INIt is with sadness that we have lost one of God’s children. My Aunt Carol, even though I had not seen her in many years had touched my heart. She was a beautiful person both inside and out and I will always remember her for her kindness she showed to me and others. May she rest in peace.

    God Speed, Aunt Carol! I will see you again in Heaven some day.

    All my love, Vicki Buegel Wasy

    Jamestown MDCarol was a great lady to know, she was my boss’s wife and I enjoyed knowing her so much. We used to meet in the grocery stores and she would always stop to visit. She was a great cook when they had the staff from the bank over for a get together. Enjoyed them both very much, both of us!!
    Donald, I think you even worked for me in the bookkeeping for a time, a terrific guy. I got to meet so many young students that worked to get some experience in their young life, it was a fun time, always felt like we were part of the family.
    John,I don’t believe I really got to know you, but we wish your whole family the best in the future, remember all the great memories of your family, that will help a lot. They will always be watching over your families.
    Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers at this time. God Bless each of you.

    CAWe’ve always been fond of our ‘North Dakota Aunts’, and it’s sad that there are less of them now. Aunt Carol was always good company. My favorite memory is of the last gathering of the Bushaw’s in 1991 in Rosarita Beach, Baja Mexico. Most of Grandma Lillian’s 10 kids were there, plus me, cause I lived so close. Those guys really talked up a storm when they were together. They talked about the early days – such stories! And Carol would occasionally say something that would crack them up. I can hear her say “I didn’t know THAT!” and then the whole room laughed. Wonderful. Her life was long, her life was full of wonderful experiences. Lucky girl.

    Los Angeles Ca. I’m very sorry for your loss. I don’t what I can say at this time to bring any comfort except I believe GOD created all of his children with a soft and gentle spirit. I know in my heart that heaven has improved with Aunt Carol’s presence there. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time . Love Jeff
