In February 2012, Adventist University of Health Sciences received a one million dollar legacy gift from Louisa Bussing.
Though Mrs. Bussing never set foot on the University campus, she was well acquainted with its mission and ministry. When her husband, Fred, was a patient at Florida Hospital, the nursing staff’s daily kindness left a deep impression. Years later, as she was planning her estate, Mrs. Bussing decided she wanted to help more students become nurses.
“She was always a very giving person,” says Louisa’s friend, Sandra Lundquist. “Quiet, independent, loyal. She lived a modest life, but was a wise investor.”
When Mrs. Bussing passed away on November 11, 2011, she also left gifts for cancer, heart, and diabetes treatment and research at Florida Hospital.
