Obituary for Marlys Marlyne Busch (McDowell)

Marlys Marlene Busch passed away November 9, 2017. She was born in Canon City, Colorado December 29, 1938 to Walter and Eunice McDowell. Marlys met Eugene, a soldier based at Fort Carson, when she was 16 years old and they were married for 59 adventurous years. They had two children, Mecque and Tom Busch. Marlys enjoyed bowling, crocheting, cooking, Cripple Creek and the Broncos and was always a willing partner to ride anywhere and to do anything Eugene wanted to do. They owned many different businesses and traveled all over the United States. She loved her two children, six grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews very much. Marlys was a precious, sweet soul, never complaining and always a great listener to her family.
Marlys is survived by her sister, Jean (Dale) Roberts; sister-in-law, Becky McDowell; daughter, Mecque (Bart) Southern-Nesmith; grandchildren, Casey Southern, Corey (Brandy) Southern, Jacob (Jaimee) Southern, Brian (Kellie) Busch, Bradley Busch, Colin Busch; great-grandchildren, Kaden Southern, Shayla Busch, Alexis Busch, Lacie Busch; and her dear friend, Barbara Thacker.
Marlys was preceded in death by her parents, Walter McDowell and Eunice McDowell-Goode; son, Tom Busch, who passed in 2012; brothers, Ronnie McDowell, Darold McDowell; and husband, Eugene Busch.
A celebration of life for both Marlys and Eugene will be held next Spring in the mountains, where their ashes will be scattered together. The family would like to acknowledge the Sangre De Cristo Hospice ladies for their dedication and tender loving care of Marlys. A special thanks to Rae Ferguson, her care companion.
