passed into her new life with our Lord on November 6, 2009
at the age of 87. She is survived by her daughter Barbara Buenger of Playa Del Rey, CA, and son Bryan Buenger of Gilbert, AZ, her sisters Lenora Greenberg of Eureka, MO, and Norna Jean Eisterhold of Rich Fountain, MO, as well as sisters-in-law Ardyth O’Hair of Phoenix, AZ, and Rita Mae Eichholz of Brinktown, MO. Ann and her husband, W.A. “Bill” Buenger moved to Arizona in 1946. Ann retired from Scottsdale Public Schools, but continued to work faithfully in ministries for St. Theresa’s Catholic Church until physically unable to do so. Her passions were faith, family, friends, card games, and the St. Louis Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondback baseball teams. She now joins her two brothers, Walter and Lawrence in peace, and is safely home with the love of her life, her husband Bill. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, to make donations to St. Mary Food Bank or a food bank of your choice. A Funeral Mass is scheduled for Wednesday, November 11 at 10:00 AM at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 5045 E. Thomas Rd. Interment will follow at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery.
