Rita Kay Busz, a lifetime resident of Warsaw, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 13, 2020, at Majestic Care in New Haven, just one day before her 60th birthday.
Rita was born on March 14, 1960, in Warsaw to Harold Swope and Patsy (Taylor) Hamilton. She attended Warsaw Community High School and worked for several local businesses throughout her life including Prairie View Nursing Home (now Warsaw Meadows) and Miller’s Merry Manor. She is also remembered for the many years she worked at Owen’s in the bakery department.
Rita loved bike riding, hunting for bargains at garage sales and time spent with her children and her family. She was a hard worker when she was healthier but, as her health declined, she had to find new ways to keep herself busy. She enjoyed BINGO, games on her tablet and listening to country music.
On Jan. 19, 1979, Rita was married to Darwin Busz. He survives at home in Warsaw as do their two children, Jason Busz and Kimberly Busz; her brother. Mike (Patty) Swope of Warsaw; sisters, Janet (Troy) Ousley of Claypool and Cindy (Tim) Brown of Warsaw and mother, Patsy Hamilton. Her father, Harold Swope and brother, Randy Swope preceded her in passing.
