Condolence from Sandra Corley Mitchell on November 30th, 2005 12:00 am

Dennis Bussey,
I am sorry to read about your stepmother’s death in The State newspaper in Columbia, SC. She was such an accomplished lady, and I am sure the family had many happy years with her. I also remember reading your father’s obit in The State paper.
My father, Raymond Corley, worked in the same building with your father in Edgefield your father with Farm Bureau and Daddy w/ the US Dept. of Agriculture. Daddy often spoke of your family and the Navy careers. I did not realize that your brother Wayne had died. While I was behind you and Wayne in school I grad. from Strom Thurmond HS in ’69, I do remember having seen you two off and on. You probably never knew my father. He was 6″10 tall. I am thinking of you at this time.
Sandra Corley Mitchell

Condolence from Sarah Kathryn Smith Collier on November 30th, 2005 12:00 am

I will deeply miss my grandmother, Sarah Virginia Grim Smith Bussey. She was an amazing woman and I referred to her as my “Steel Magnolia”. I always enjoyed our frequent phone chats with her giving me sage advice on life, southern cookingher caramel cake was famous! or anything else we were discussing–her cognitive skills were incredible, even at 88! I will sleep alittle better knowing she is now watching over all of us. She was loved dearly.
