Mary Ann was born June 12, 1930 in Alsen, North Dakota to Zacharias and Minnie Schroeder Bartel and passed away January 19, 2022.

After three years in North Dakota, the family moved to a farm near Orienta, Oklahoma.  Mary Ann began her school career at Orienta Grade School.  Her father, Zach, was killed in a farming accident in 1936 and her family moved to Fairview in 1938, where she attended Fairview Public School through the eighth grade.  She attended high school at Oklahoma Bible Academy, graduating in 1948 and then attended Enid Business College in 1949.  Mary Ann met her future husband, Robert Buller, while in high school, and they were married April 16, 1950.  They celebrated 65 years of marriage before his passing in 2015.  They were blessed with three children, Yvonne, Bobby, and Jon.

Mary Ann was a homemaker, Avon sales representative, seamstress, bookkeeper for Robert’s farming business, and active in her local church.  She was also an amazing cook.  She baked bread (Zwiebach) every week, and the smells of her kitchen left fond memories for the entire family.  She ran a harvesttime “food truck” out of the trunk of her car, bringing out huge hot meals in newspaper-wrapped pots and pans, and ice cream in a Styrofoam cooler.

Mary Ann is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Robert; brother, Arlin; sisters, Alice Jantzen and Nora Ratzlaff, and great-granddaughter, Avery Clutter.

Mary Ann is survived by her children, Jeff and Yvonne Greb, Bobby and Cindy Buller, and Jon and Charolette Buller; eight grandchildren, Ryan (Monica) Greb, Amy (Brett) Clutter, Mandy (Nate) Hollenbeck, Megan (Dan) Pipes, Lukas (Julianna) Buller, Christy Buller, Leah Buller, and Emily (Ben) Campbell, and eleven great-grandchildren, Tanner and Tori Greb, Chase and Drew Clutter, Phoenix, Madelyn, Katelyn, and Emmalyn Hollenbeck, Bernadette Buller, Clara, and Levi Campbell.

Memorials may be made to Zoar Church through the funeral home.
