Nicole "Niki" Renee Busch, 38, of Overland Park, passed away unexpectedly on June 20, 2020.

She was born on October 22, 1981, to Joseph and Beverly (Worley) Mater in Lawrence, Kansas. She graduated from Free State High School in Lawrence, Kansas, and went on to attend Xenon International School of Hair Design in Wichita, Kansas.

On August 7, 2004, she married the absolute love of her life Jarod Douglas Busch, and they made their family home in Overland Park, Kansas. Her favorite things in life included vacationing in Florida with her family, being a "soccer mom" to her girls through their soccer club TOCA, F.C., sitting front row at Blake Shelton concerts, watching reality TV, and, most of all, spending time with her family and friends.

Niki worked as a hairstylist for 17 years. She loved her job and, most importantly, her clients.

Niki is survived by her loving spouse Jarod; her beautiful, sweet daughters Karsyn and Chesnee; her parents Beverly and Joseph Mater; her sisters Lori (Omar) McCloud and Megan Mater; her niece Makyla "Kylie" Davis; her mother-in-law and father-in-law Debbie and Jeff Busch; her sister-in-law Jaclyn (Jason) Cheever; her brother-in-law Jordan (Ali) Busch; and a large extended family of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Raymond "Ray" Worley and Ester Worley and her paternal grandparents Joseph Mater, Sr. and Lorraine V. Mater.

Visitation will be held on Friday, June 26, and Saturday, June 27, 2020, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Penwell-Gabel Olathe Chapel in Olathe, Kansas.

A private service for the family will be held Sunday morning. The family requests, and would be honored, by your attendance at the graveside service on Sunday, June 28, 2020, at noon, at Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Overland Park, Kansas. All are welcome.

Niki was taken from us too soon. The loss is painful. Even though Nikis death was sudden, her impact cannot be contained in her short lifetime. Her memory will live on with me, her entire family and friends, and forever through her beautiful daughters. If she was here with us today, I know shed be smiling. I am so grateful to have known her. It was a pleasure to grow up together. I love you Nicole Renee.
