Linda Carol (Riley) Busenbark

August 4, 1955 — November 12, 2023


Linda Carol (Riley) Busenbark, age 68 of Terre Haute and formerly of Kingman, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at home while surrounded by her loving family. She battled cancer for 16 years after the doctor told her she had 1-2 years to live. She was born in Danville, Illinois on August 4, 1955 to the late Lowell M. & Lorene I. (Allen) Riley.

Linda graduated from Fountain Central High School in 1973. She worked as a sign installer and crew chief for Indiana Department of Transportation for over 20 years, retiring December 2013. She loved singing and was in a band, Western Storm for 3 years, showed horses for 25 years, mostly Arabian and other breeds, and used to grow and sell around 3,000 Iris bulbs a year. She was a member of New Century Church in Veedersburg, the Ladies Group at New Century Church, and the DAR Dorothy Q. Chapter in Crawfordsville.

On August 31, 2004 in Tuson, Arizona she married the love of her life, Kenneth Dean "Kenny" Busenbark. Linda said that Kenny was the most loving husband, from taking her to her doctor's appointments, to showers, to getting her whatever she needs. Kenny has gone above and beyond to care for her and she will be forever grateful for his love and care throughout her health battle.

She is survived by her loving husband of 19 years, Kenny Busenbark; a step son, Tyler (Kristin) Busenbark; two grandchildren, Natalie and Ella Busenbark; four brothers, Bruce Riley, Ronald (Martha) Riley, Brian (Becky) Riley, and Timothy "Tim" (April) Riley; and sister-in-law, Debra Riley.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Lowell Daniel "Danny" Riley.
