In memory of
Pauline Juliette "Polly" Bushey
Pauline "Polly" Juliette Bushey Age: 86 Pauline (Polly) Juliette Bushey, 86, entered into the presence of her Heavenly Father on March 3, 2017, in Longview Texas. She was born in Montreal, Quebec, on January 30, 1931, to Charles and Germaine Boivin. Polly graduated from Bellows Free Acadamy, St. Albans, Vermont in 1950 and married her high school sweetheart, Charles "Art" Bushey on December 24, 1950. Polly and Art celebrated 50 years of marriage before Art entered into glory in early 2001. Polly lived the greater part of her life in Vermont and she and her husband were part of a small group of families who founded the Essex Alliance Church in 1968. Her love of reading enabled her to tell stories to children that would keep them spellbound at her feet. This gift of storytelling was evident in the many successful neighborhood vacation bible schools she held in the late 1960's and very early 1970's. Polly worked for many years at McEwing Fuels until her retirement in the early 1990's. Polly is survived by her six children: Deborah Ritchie of Essex Junction; Charles "Chuck" Bushey of Longview, Texas; Diane Comeau of St. Albans; Catherine Rayes of Phoenix, AZ; Paul Bushey of Seneca, South Carolina; James Bushey of Essex Junction; and their spouses. She is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Polly's life will be held on Saturday, April 29th, at the Essex Alliance Church, Essex, Vermont, at 1:00pm.
