Rose Marie Visser, age 83, of Bussey passed away on Friday, August 7, 2020 at the Mahaska Health Partnership Serenity House in Oskaloosa. She was born on July 27, 1937, to William and Margaret (Hols) Rumbaugh in Des Moines. 

She was united in marriage to William Wood.  They shared 18 Years of marriage together and were blessed with four children; Mary, Jim, Doris and Grace.  She later remarried to Lyle Visser, becoming a stepmother to Carol, Pam and Lylaine. Rose and Lyle shared 31 wonderful years of marriage until his passing in 2002.

Rose was a homemaker most of her life, raising her children. In the 80’s she owned and operated the Bussey Cafe and together with her daughters they made memories and proudly served the residents of Bussey. Rose will be remembered for being a great cook, specifically for her homemade chicken & noodles and her amazing pies. She always enjoyed when friends and family would come to visit, usually sitting at the kitchen table enjoying coffee and pie. In her younger years she enjoyed fishing and gardening. She loved making trips to fleamarkets and to the casinos. You could always find a lottery scratch off ticket in her hand. She found enjoyment watching the birds and squirrels play outside of her home. Most of all, she loved her family and friends. 

She is survived by her children, Jim (Dee) Wood of Arizona, Doris (Ross) Allen of Libertyville, Grace (Wes) Bonnett of Bussey; twelve grandchildren, Jim, Dawn, Jason, Leory, Travis, Nick, Heather, Nathan, Chad, Amber, Mindy, Mandy, Dusty and Brandy; Seven step-grandchilden, Chasity “Lynn”, Amanda, Zack, Randy, Jake, Curtis and Lisa, thirty-eight great-grandchildren and Four great great granchildren; siblings, Jim (Judy) Rumbaugh of Des Moines, Mary Rumbaugh of Oskaloosa, Margaret “Sugar” (Dwayne) Lane of Van Meter. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Margaret Rumbaugh, spouses William Wood and Lyle Visser, a daughter Mary Garr, siblings; Bob, Bill, Ray, Melvin “Butchy”, Wilma, Lida "Lady", Mike, Berniece, Florence and Francis.
