Carmitia L. (Buell) Yust was born September 26, 1935 to Keith and Ursula (Shriver) Buell in Peabody, Kansas. She was the third child of five children to the couple.

Carmitia loved tending to her vegetable and flower garden, which always looked beautiful. Her biggest pride and joy was her grandchildren whom she spent most of her time with. She was in attendance to almost every sporting event her grandchildren had, cheering them on from the stands or sidelines. She loved watching all sports on television, especially the Chiefs, Royals, and KU Jayhawks.

Carmitia was preceded in death by her parents, Keith and Ursula Buell.

Carmitia is survived by her loving husband of sixty-five years, Ray Yust. Other survivors include: her children, Raymond Friedland-Yust (Deborah), of Montreal, Canada and Cyndi Ostrander (Hugh) of Kansas City, Missouri. Her grandchildren, Joe Ostrander, Stephanie Ostrander, Megan Ostrander, Leo Friedland-Yust, and Kayla Friedland-Yust, as well as many other relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be given to St. Sabina Catholic Church as addressed above.
