Edith Abel Glines

Asheville - Edith Abel Glines passed away on August 2, 2018. She was born in Montpelier, Vermont on September 2, 1924 to the late Walter Abel and Carrie (Hansen) Abel. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by brothers Alfred and Charles Abel and husband Maurice Earl Buska.

She attended Montpelier schools and graduated from Montpelier High.

Ms. Glines is survived by daughters, Linda Burnett of Murphy, NC, Debra Dailey of Candler, NC, and son, Gary Glines of Ellenborro, NC. She is also survived by two nieces, three grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

She was a loving and devoted parent throughout life, always encouraging and participating in her children's lives, whether it entailed leading scout troops, sewing outfits, or house painting. She was known by many family members and friends simply by the name, "Great" as she was christened by her first great-grandchild.

Ms. Glines also resided in Connecticut and Florida holding various jobs, retiring in Merritt Island, Florida as a retail department manager.

After retirement, she spent 20 years as a full time RVer, traveling the United States (including Alaska), volunteering at parks and campgrounds, and in support of worthy causes. She also enjoyed caravans to Mexico and meet-ups with fellow Escapee Club friends. Always the great explorer, she enjoyed traveling overseas as well, to destinations including Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and England.

Other passions included being a life-long Red Sox fan and animal lover, with special affections for horses and felines, both wild and domestic.

No services are planned at this time.
