Della M. Buller, 91, passed away on Friday, March 2, 2018, in Lancaster, Calif.

Della was born Dec. 28, 1926, at home in Newton to Cliston and Katherine Black.

She worked for the U.S. Postal Service and was proud to be the first female mail carrier in Newton. She married Pete D. Buller on Feb. 19, 1946.

She was a homemaker and stay-at-home mom who loved her job and took pride in raising her children. She passed along her knowledge and love of cooking, especially of German food.

She loved and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren as well – her living room walls were always covered with pictures of them, through all stages of their lives.

Grandchildren are Gary McCloud Jr., Derek Buller, Kevin Buller, Kelly McCloud Johnson, Christopher Buller and Anthony Rideout. She was also blessed by many great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
