Karen Louise Buesking, 65, a Northland resident of Kansas City, MO passed away peacefully on Friday, December 4, 2020 at NorthCare Hospice. Karen was born July 27, 1955 to Fred and Louise (Houston) McDaniel in East St. Louis, IL.
Karen was united in marriage with Craig John Buesking on May 21, 1988 in Belleville, IL.
Karen was self-employed in the Northland area as a hair-stylist, teacher and cosmetologist for 45 years; she was also a former partner of Salon Ego’s. She was extremely gifted and talented as a stylist. Karen would tell you “If you love what you do….you will never work a day in your life.”
Words alone cannot begin to describe Karen, but if you had to choose a single word, she will always be remembered as: fun, friendly, kind, lots of sass, loving, level-headed and she never judged anyone. Everyone that met Karen felt the energy of her love. Her love for life and family was always her priority.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Craig Buesking (January 7, 2007), her father, Fred McDaniel and a sister, Kathleen Baudendistel. Karen is survived by her loving daughters: McLane Louise Buesking of Kansas City, MO and Kyndal Lee Wolf and her husband, Darren of Kansas City, MO; one granddaughter, Harper; her mother, Louise McDaniel of Belleville, IL; a brother, Kevin McDaniel of Belleville, IL; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.
Cremation will take place per Karen’s wishes. A Celebration of Karen’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers Memorial contributions are suggested to the family for Harpers College Education or to the donor’s choice.
