Aurora passed away at home, peacefully with her husband John Bustin seated by her side on June 4, 2017. John and Aurora, both their second marriages, have been married for over 52 years. She was born in Linaria, Alberta Canada in 1932, to parent's Alexander and Ethel Weir. She had two brothers Langdon and Trevor, five sisters including Brooksie, Gwendolyn, Larraine, Loretta, Maurita. Her siblings are deceased and now at peace with Aurora in heaven. They lived in a very rural part of Canada on a farm. As a young woman of 19, Aurora moved to California to get away from the cold and have more things to do in the community. She spent 53 years of her adult life in Riverside. The family swam in the backyard pool; camped and boated often, had many a beach trip and liked going to fairs and festivals.
Aurora was very involved in her family, her children, their significant others, her grandchildren, her great grandchildren and her nieces and nephews. Aurora especially loved kids, she was very involved in their lives, listened to them and tended to their needs and well-being with empathy and care. She was mother to seven children, four boys: Johnny, James, Michael, Ronnie and three girls: Debbie, Darlene and Sabrina. As the family grew large, her involvement and influence in their lives grew as well and she became a strong touch stone for all. Aurora and her husband John are blessed with an abundance of family, they have 18 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren and two great, great grandchildren.
Aurora had a heart for people, she cared deeply about others, getting involved and showing love and compassion to all who came into her life. Pets were also a constant in her sphere of affection. Her most loyal dog stayed with her on her bed till her last breath. She attended Harvest Church and made costumes for her grandchildren who were steadily in the church plays. She was artistic and creative; she liked to sew, paint ceramics, tend her roses, fruit trees and dance to Country Western Music. She worked at various jobs throughout her life and said that she liked working. She retired from working at Burpee Seeds Company on Arlington in Riverside, California; one of her favorite places. Those that knew her, knew her kind and generous heart, that heart vested in love for all.
