Anna Mae (Crawford) Dornbusch (1935-2017)

Anna Mae (Crawford) Dornbusch was born on February 22, 1935 in Woodbine, Texas to Tom and Ida Mae (Day) Crawford. She was one of five children.

Anna married Arthur H. Dornbusch on September 5th, 1954 in Sherman, Texas. Helping raise their four children was not the only thing that kept Anna busy throughout her life. She was an accomplished seamstress, very talented in the kitchen and never missed a beat when it came to entertaining. She managed to perform all these tasks while holding down a job outside the home, as well. While remodeling a home they purchased, Anna displayed her artistic side by implementing plans and ideas that even the contractors didn’t think were possible. She also enjoyed doing needle point, decorative painting to birdhouses that Arthur built, and various other projects.

Anna departed this earthly life for her eternal home on Monday, September 18, 2017 while residing at ‘Senior Care at Onion Creek’. She is survived by her husband, Arthur; her children Mark Dornbusch, Deborah Reiners, Michael Dornbusch and his wife Teresa, and Brian Dornbusch and his wife Lisa; as well as her eight grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; brother, John Crawford and his wife Lujuana; sister-in-law, Sue Crawford; and a host of nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her brother, Jack Crawford; sister, Faye Adams; sister, Norma Shelton and brother-in-law, Dwayne Shelton.

For those who have come to know Anna, Arthur and their children well enough to enjoy their “quick wit and sarcasm”, you have Anna to thank, as that is where that fun-loving attitude started. She will surely be missed by all.

Friends and family are invited to the Buda United Methodist Church, located at 302 Elm Street in Buda, TX on Saturday, September 30, 2017 for Anna’s celebration of life at 10:00 am. Please visit to share a fond memory, photograph or condolence with Anna’s family on her on-line memorial site.
