Deborah Fay Buss

December 19, 1951-April 21, 2021


Deborah Buss, 69, of La Porte, Indiana, passed away Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital.


She was born December 19, 1951 in La Porte, Indiana, the daughter of William Davis and Hulah (Dyer) Davis.

She then went to work as a teller at La Porte Savings Bank for 10 years, finally retiring in 2016. Deborah enjoyed reading and watching her favorite shows on TV, going to the lake and just being outdoors.
