Lynne Judith Bushey
Lynne graduated from Marysville High School (WA) in 1959. She attended the University of Washington where she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority. On December 16, 1961 she married her high school sweetheart, Bob Bushey. They lived in the Seattle , WA area and had their three children before moving to Arizona in 1970. Lynne and Bob celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary among family and friends in August, 2011 in LaConner, WA.
While raising her children, Lynne loved serving her community. She was instrumental in bringing Pop Warner Football to Buckeye, AZ, as well as a den mother for Cub Scouts of America. Her careers included working at a school for autistic and developmentally challenged children as well as working in the front office of Skagit Radiology.
Lynne loved to travel with her husband, Bob whether it be roving around Arizona or cruising the Yangtze in China. Her beautifully decorated cottage reflected a life filled with her love of her family history, as well as artifacts from her travels. Every item had a story and a purpose. She treasured her friendships dearly and had an extraordinary ability for making everyone feel loved. Her sense of humor knew no boundaries, and will leave us all with wonderful stories forever. Lynne's grandchildren were her treasures of which she was most proud, and thus are her legacy.
Lynne is survived by her beloved husband, Bob Bushey; their three children, son, Troy, and his wife LeAnn of LaConner, WA, daughter, Dawn Chapman, and her husband, John of Chandler, AZ, and son, Darin, and his wife, Denise of Chandler, AZ; eight grandchildren, Charlotte and Brooks Bushey of LaConner, WA, Derek, Caroline, Gavin, and Trevor Chapman of Chandler, AZ, and Evan and Samantha Bushey of Chandler, AZ; two sisters, Robin Pendell, and her husband, Ken and Chris Downes, and her husband, Dwaine; all of Marysville, WA; and sister in law, Carolyn Bushey of LaConner; as well as seven nieces and two nephews.
