BARBARA A. BUSHEY - MIDDLEBURY - Barbara A. Bushey 71, of Middlebury, died Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, in Fletcher Allen Health Care after a brief illness. She was born on July 9, 1942, in Middlebury, the daughter of the late Raymond Sr. and Catherine (Whitman) Allen. She graduated from Middlebury High School, Class of 1960. Barbara was employed as a receptionist at CVPS for many years. She later became a bank teller at The National Bank of Middlebury before retiring. After retirement, she thoroughly enjoyed volunteering at Porter Hospital as well as for the Everyone Wins Reading Program at Mary Hogan School. She married the love of her life, Ralph Bushey, on May 4, 1963. Everyone who knew Barb knew that she was an AVID and Devoted Red Sox fan. AND she let everyone know it! She would rarely miss even a single game. One of the things that she wanted throughout her entire stay in the SICU was her Red Sox hat and she wore it proudly until the end. Barb's other great enjoyment was quilting and knitting. Many family members and friends have enjoyed these gifts for many, many years. Barb was a longtime member of the Otter Valley Good Sam's RV Club, and an honorary member of the Vermont Beagle Club, as well as a past member of the Foot of the Mountain Snow Travelers. She is survived by her daughter, Julie Bushey and her wife, Penny Ploof, of Middlebury; sons, Bruce Bushey and wife, Bridget Charlebois, of Middlebury, and Patrick Bushey and companion, Roxanne Williams, of Bridport; sister, Patricia White and husband, Robert, of Estero, Fla.; brothers, Raymond and wife, Clara Allen, of Maryland, and Michael Allen of Rutland; her adored grandchildren, Cody Bushey and Caileigh Bushey; as well as her four-legged grandson, "Jackson." Barb also had numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband, Ralph, on July 28, 1979; and siblings, Alice Stevens, John Allen, Nancy Tricell, and Tom Allen. The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses in the SICU at FAHC for their wonderful care and compassion this past month. You were all wonderful.
