Elizabeth A. (Betty) Bundschu, Age: 90
Aug 08, 1931 - Jan 10, 2022

Elizabeth A. (Betty) Bundschu, 90, long time Independence, Missouri resident passed peacefully surrounded by her family in Lee's Summit on Monday, January 10, 2022. 


Raised in Walterboro, South Carolina, Betty was the daughter of John Lindsay Moore (born in North Ireland) and Elizabeth Prentiss Moore (born on Yonge's Island, SC).  She is survived by her husband of 65 years Bill Bundschu, her children Lindsay Bundschu Voitik (Skip), Barbara Bundschu Deal (Rob), Tony Bundschu (Holly), and Beth Bundschu Bresette (Jeff), along with grandchildren Colin and Christian Bundschu, Caroline, Lauren and Alex Deal, and Will and Andy Bresette.


Her parents, infant brother John (Jackie) Moore and cousin Elizabeth P. Holland predeceased her.


Betty attended Winthrop University (undergraduate) and Virginia Commonwealth University (internship) earning a certificate as a registered dietitian in 1953.


She was a proud member of the Junior Service League for over 60 years and had lifelong friendships with many other members from the JSL.  


Betty was an elder and deacon of the Independence First Presbyterian Church.


As a dearly loved mom to four, Betty supported countless activities and dreams.  She was also a devoted and exceeding tolerant wife, expertly supporting Bill on his numerous, lengthy, and tedious expeditions across North America on that "Damn Bike."


Betty enjoyed playing Bridge and travelling with friends overseas.  A southern native, she enjoyed flowers, spending time at the beach, eating boiled peanuts and lemon meringue pie, collecting shells and sharks teeth. 


A service at the First Presbyterian Church will be held at a later time.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks for memorial contributions to the John Knox Village Foundation (Village Care Center), 400 NW Murray Road, Lee's Summit, MO  64081.

Easter at the Bundshu house was always an event we looked forward to every spring. Betty always made the family, food and egg hunt an exceptionally wonderful event. I remember thinking over the years what a compassionate, lady she was and such a wonderful role model for everyone in her life.
