In loving memory of Elaine L. Bushey who passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on July 15,2021.

She was predeceased by her mother Thelma Limoge and her father Leon Limoge. Also her brothers Jerome Limoge and Robert (Bob) Limoge, as well as her husband Glendon Bushey.

She is survived by her brother, Raymond Limoge (Patty) and her children, Jeanne Button, Jacquelyn Duffy, Maree Bushey (Donald Ball), David Bushey (Pamela), Steven Bushey (Tracy), her grandchildren, Jason Duffy, Angela Waseleski, Jared Hoag (Becky), Seth Hoag, Justin Bushey (Melissa), Stephanie Bushey, Katon Bushey, Cooper Bushey, and Cam Bushey. Not to forget the many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, as well as their children too numerous to name.

Elaine was born in Milton where she grew up, went to high school and married a local farmer’s son, Glendon Bushey. They lived and worked on the Bushey Farm in Essex Junction while starting a family.

Her life didn’t stand still even while raising five children. She and her husband opened a small take-out submarine sandwich shop in Milton. The business evolved over the years to become the state’s first Quick Stop. It attracted the local teens and became a favorite “hang out" spot in town.

With the family grown, the business was sold, and they relocated to Ruskin, Fl. near her parents, where they purchased a small hotel. This business evolved as well. They sold it and "retired" in 1982. Elaine went on to be the office manager of Bob’s Machine shop for over 10 years and continued to work into her 70’s.

She kept a home that was a popular gathering spot for all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as friends. Many of her family followed her to Florida where they still reside.

Most notably in Elaine’s life was her devotion to Christianity. She was a member of Saint Ann’s Parish in Milton, and it was just a coincidence that she joined St. Anne Parish in Ruskin, Fl. Her family dubbed her “St Ann."

She was a devout member of the church and spent many hours assisting and preparing for services as well as volunteering in the community.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you the day God took you home. We love you Mom, Gram, GG. You will be greatly missed.
