Slusher, Elaine



On August 7, 2017, while sitting in the afternoon sun in her garden in Placitas in view of the Sandia Mountains, Elaine Slusher unexpectedly but peacefully died.

Elaine was born on August 24, 1927, in Owosso, Michigan to Myrtle and Orlando Gale Dickinson. She was the middle of three daughters, and grew up and attended high school in Owosso.

Elaine is survived by her three children, Stephen Slusher and his husband, Jon Carl Lewis, of Trenton, New Jersey; Katherine Slusher and her husband, Jesus Carles de Villalonga, of Barcelona, Spain; and Michael Slusher and his wife, Erika, of Placitas. Elaine has one granddaughter, Ella Slusher, the daughter of Michael and Erika. Elaine is also survived by one sister, Joyce Ackerman of Monroe, Michigan.

The family will hold a remembrance gathering in Placitas later this year.
