Grace Marie Bauserman

Ronceverte-Grace Marie Bauserman, 90, passed away Thursday, May 2, 2019, at The Brier Nursing Home in Ronceverte.

She was born Nov. 25, 1928, in Ronceverte, to John and Bessie Barley and was preceded in death by her late husband, Waldo F. Bauserman.

She was a long time member of the Ronceverte Christian Church.

Grace worked as a telephone operator for C&P Telephone Company for 34 years which most likely contributed to her love of talking on the telephone with friends and loved ones on a daily basis, as well as showing off her texting skills by sending happy thoughts and to ask “what are you having for dinner?” She loved to cook and provided family, friends and many others in the community with her delicious home cooked meals.  She will always be known for her generosity, love and kindness.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, John Barley and Everett Barley: and two sisters, Nellie McNeil and Blanche Taylor.

She is survived by her daughter, Drema M. Holland (Fred) and special niece, Martha McNeil; grandchildren, Raina Holland (Nichole), Jeremiah Holland (Brandy), Anna Gillis (Jason); great-grandchildren, Keiristen, Dale, Delylah, Christian, Madison, Rylee, Ariel, Zach, Ethan, Khalil, and Brooklyn; and many special nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dr. Connie Anderson and special staff for their many years of tender loving care for Grace.

Visitation was Sunday, May 5, before the service. Interment followed in Greenbrier Memorial Gardens.
