May 31, 1940 — September 22, 2021 Carolyn Sue Busby, 81 of Mustang, Okla., formerly of Peoria and Taylorville, died on September 22, 2021, at 5:30 a.m. She was born on May 31, 1940.
She was the nicest, most consistent person, always ready to greet anyone with a smile. She could laugh at anything and get to know anyone. A bright light in the stormy sea of life. She loved to eat pizza, drink Yoohoo and watch Star Trek Movies with her grandson Johnny. She was able to celebrate birthdays with her great-grandchildren. She always welcomed us back home with a warm bowl of potato soup and Avanti’s Gondola’s if it was cold out or Penguin Pizza if it was warm, loving and caring for everyone. Long conversations around the kitchen table were always a joy for family and guest. Whether riding motorcycles, playing hockey or helping with Boy Scouts, mom and dad were always there and involved. She enjoyed fishing each Mother’s Day with her son Vernon Busby.
She is survived by her son: Marvin (Mabel) Busby; grand- son: Jonathan Lee (Chelly) Busby; great-grandchildren: Clara and Joel; grandson: Lee Joshua (Rachel) Busby; great-grand- children: Hannah G. and Emma C; and her nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 30 years (divorced): Lee D. Busby of Peoria Ill.; son: Vernon L. Busby Sparland, Ill.; brothers and sisters: Norman Kohl, Marcia Kohl-Litz, Bette Kohl-Tumiati and Doug Kohl.
