Mrs. Buice was born in Decatur, GA on March 24, 1928. She lived for forty years in Loganville, GA and attended Decatur High School. Mrs. Buice started working as a beloved Nurse’s Aide on the first day that DeKalb General Hospital opened. She served the nurses, doctors and patients there for ten years. She loved working in her yard caring for her flowers. She loved all types of flowers and was even known to cut large trees down in the yard. Mrs. Buice was dedicated and took great pride in keeping her home a warm and cozy place to raise her family. When health issues began to arise, Mrs. Buice’s doctor recommended she become more active, so, Mr. Buice being the loving and dedicated husband he was, would drive her to Loganville High School and sit in the stands, while she walked the track. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will truly be missed by her family.
A private family graveside service honoring Mrs. Buice’s life will be held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery in Snellville, GA with her son, Chaplain Terry L. Buice officiating. A memorial service will be held at a later date at First Baptist Church of Auburn, GA with Chaplain Terry Buice officiating.
