Janice Marie Buse, age 73, of Lake View, IA, passed away on Monday, October 1, 2012, at Black Hawk Life Care Center in Lake View. Jan was born on August 25, 1939, in Arcadia, IA to Herbert and Lorraine (Martens) Ewoldt. She grew up in Lytton, IA, where she attended Lytton School, graduating with the class of 1957.
