Obituary for Barbara Jean Bugbee

Our Mothers Story

May 31, 1931 was when it all began. There were so many friends as the years went by and our mother grew in age. Mom grew up in Milton, Vermont. Later when she married the love of her life Robert Bugbee they purchased a home in Jericho. Moms world revolved around her husband and later as God blessed them their six children. Mom worked from home as keeper of all. A job she did out of love for her family. She was a devoted wife and mother. A rock that no one will ever understand how it stayed so sturdy through so many years… Mom worked out of the house as her children grew. The Maple factory in Essex. Oh how we loved it when she worked there. Dessoes store by the green in Jericho. Many remember how she would walk to work only having to leave to carry a goose home that followed her from the back yard. The children she tended who would go to their own homes after a day of fun. She was a mother to so many, a friend to all and a wife to her one and only. Our mom had a love of music even to her last days if only tapping her finger. The weekends at camp in Belvedere with friends singing and playing cards. Mom’s gardens were plenty and how she worked canning through the fall to feed us all through the winter. We all have learned so much from her. To live life and to embrace it for the moment that it is…

Mom passed away silently in her sleep February 20, 2016 after a many year battle with dementia at the Manor Nursing home in Morrisville, VT. We her children want to thank all the staff for seeing her through all those years and taking the best of care of her and putting up with all of us everyday our questions, concerns our parties for her. God bless you all.

Our father Robert and grandson Matt and granddaughter Veronica have been with the lord some time now and we know they were there waiting to welcome her home. That we are sure of.

Mothers siblings have gone before her leaving here with us her brother Richard Turner whom now resides in Texas with his family.
