Joyce Rosenbusch, 88, went to be with our Lord on March 28, 2015, surrounded by her loving family at St. David's Hospital in Georgetown, Texas.

Joyce was born on February 21, 1927 in Georgetown, Texas, to Frank and Lil Hausenfluck. In 1947, Joyce married the love of her life, Rudolf Rosenbusch. She and Rudolf were avid Rodeo fans, and it was at the arena that Rudolf pursued a red-headed barrel racer that he would call his wife for 53 years. Their devoted marriage continues to serve as an inspiration for their children and grandchildren.

Joyce worked 32 years at Southwestern University as the Supervisor of Alumni Records, where she received the Pearl A. Neas Award and was declared an Honorary Alumni. Joyce enjoyed most of all her partnership with Rudolf on their ranch, where they worked livestock, plowed fields, and mended fences together. Her work ethic paralleled that of her husbands and together they emulated strength of responsibility and dedication to service for their children.

Joyce created a loving home for her family and one of her greatest joys was being a Grandmother to 5 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and multiple unofficial grandchildren within her community and church. Joyce joined the Lawler Baptist Church in 1991 and served in many capacities; but perhaps her most beloved congregational duty was serving as Food Chairman and cooking for her church family.

She enjoyed preparing meals and feeding large gatherings of people, including the annual Rosenbusch summer BBQ. She loved travel, especially to Bluegrass festivals and Colorado. Without a doubt, her biggest passion was her grandchildren. She was a major supporter of the FFA program and received the Honorary Chapter Farmer Degree. Joyce loved watching her grandchildren participate in FFA events and livestock shows, and she was their biggest fan!

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents and her loving husband, Rudolf Rosenbusch.

She leaves behind her loving family to cherish her memory: Sisters, Donna Campbell of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Billie B. Smith of Round Rock, Texas; Children, Sharon Loosier (Alan) of Waxahachie, Texas, Bobby Rosenbusch (Jane) of Florence, Texas, and Gary Rosenbusch (late wife, Vickie) of Glen Rose, Texas; Grandchildren, Jennifer Wilson (Wes) of Waxahachie, Texas, Melissa Loerwald (Lance) of Florence, Texas, Mark Rosenbusch (Andrea) of Burnet, Texas, Corey Rosenbusch (Katie) of Falls Church, Virginia, and Tate Rosenbusch of Denver, Colorado; and Great-grandchildren: Ryley, Mikaela, Lilly, Brady, Mason, Landon, Hannah, Bryce, Ava, Elle.

The family will receive guests for a time of visitation on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Cook-Walden Davis Funeral Home in Georgetown, Texas.
