Obituary for Dorothy Yvonne Buck

August 20, 1936 - October 16, 2019
Parma, Ohio | Age 83

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother


Dorothy Yvonne (Brune) Buck passed from this life into eternal Glory with Christ on Wednesday, October 16 at 3:52 a.m. due to complications caused by a cerebral hemorrhage.
Dorothy was born at home in Sedgewickville, Missouri on August 20th, 1936 to Oscar and Mellie (Crites) Brune, her birth being one of 12 brothers and sisters. Dorothy grew up on the family farm in Sedgewickville, attending grade school and high school in nearby Patton.
After graduating high school, Dorothy along with two of her sisters, moved up north to the big city of St. Louis where she was hired by Standard Oil. While living there, Dorothy attended St. Stephens Lutheran Church where she met her future husband George Buck. George was also worshiping and also volunteering there while attending Concordia Seminary, training to be a Lutheran Pastor. Wedding bells rang on June 4th, 1960.
They moved to Long Island, New York when Reverend Buck was called to Long Island Lutheran High school. During their stay their first child George was born. They lived there for two years when Reverend Buck was called to his first church, St. Paul Lutheran in Valley City, Ohio. During their stay the family grew by two when Jonathan and Mark were born. In 1967, Reverend Buck was called to his second church, Redeemer Lutheran in Lancaster, Ohio. During their stay the family grew by two more when Katherine and Beth were born. In 1972, Reverend Buck was called to his third and final church, St. Mark Lutheran in Cleveland Ohio where they reside today.
As Reverend Buck worked to cultivate souls, Dorothy was his right hand woman raising five children, managing the home, cooking meals (including the best pumpkin pie ever), cleaning and doing whatever was needed around the house. She loved her husband and children very much. She had this great way of keeping the peace at home and yet disciplining her children with a firm hand and the right amount of love. She sat down with her children helping them with their studies. She was the family cheer leader, encouraging them to do their very best.
Dorothy deeply loved her Lord and Savior. She instilled her love for Christ in each of her children. She read "Little Visits with God" to them and prayed with her children nightly. She continued her children's spiritual growth as they grew into young adults. Her dedication to the church shown through her participation with the Altar Guild, Lutheran Woman's Missionary League and attending women's bible study groups.
Dorothy loved to travel with her family visiting many places in the United States, especially visiting the family farm in Missouri and Reverend Buck's family farm on Long Island. Her love of travel extended to other parts of the world where she and Reverend Buck spent time in Germany and Israel. Dorothy loved collecting spoons from every place she visited. Her collection had grown to over 90 spoons from just about every State in the Union and overseas.
Dorothy loved her St. Louis Cardinals. In the morning she would always read the Sports section of the newspaper to find out how they did the day before while drinking the hottest coffee that could be made. In her words, it was never hot enough.
Dorothy will always be remembered for her laughter, her kindness, her gentle spirit and her perfect smile. She sang, she loved, and she could bring laughter to any situation. She will be greatly missed by her husband Reverend George Buck, her Children George (the late Teresa) Buck, Jonathan (Patricia) Buck, Mark Buck, Katherine (Charlie) Dixon and Beth (Jeff) Range. Her Grandchildren Danielle Buck, Jennette Buck, Emily (Ryan) Colpitts, Jacob (Hannah) Range and Christian Dixon. Her Great-Grandchildren Tirzah Range, Canaan Colpitts and Benjamin Range. She was preceded in life by her Parents Oscar and Mellie Brune, Brothers John Brune, Carl Brune, Leo Brune, Cleo Brune, William Brune and Sisters Mary Brune, Laurel Brune, Ruth (Kutcher) Brune and Verna (Hobeck) Brune. She will be dearly missed by her sister Jean (Seems) Brune and Brother Kelly Brune.
