Kay Arlene Bushee, 83, of Fennville, MI passed away Friday, November 29, 2019 at her home with her family at her side. Born September 2, 1936 in Pearl, she was the daughter of the late Burt and Ruby (Barnes) Fleming and was the wife of the late Robert Bushee. Kay had worked for Fennville Schools for many years in the cafeteria. She loved children and especially loved to see them smile and laugh while she was clowning. When Kay wasn’t working at the school or as a clown, she was actively taking care of the family farm. In her spare time she enjoyed painting, sewing and collecting anything with ladybugs.

The family will receive friends at Chappell Funeral Home on Monday, December 2, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at which time a funeral service will begin. Burial will follow at Manlius Cemetery.

Mother Kay,
She was always there when you needed her. She taught me, she nurtured me, she loved me like one of her own. I will miss her dearly. My love and condolences to all of you. I'm so sorry that I missed saying goodbye, I heard the news to late.

Dear Bushee Family: Many happy memories and fun times with your mom and dad - Bruce's trips to Shipsie with Bob, our fun class reunions at the farm, snowmobile parties, and Bruce will never forget Kay's delicious home made raisin pie!, Our granddaughters will never forget "Bubbles!! We shared a table with Mom and Jack at our 65th class reunion this past August. We had such a good time talking and laughing and reliving "old" times. We will surely miss her.
Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Bruce and Judy Grams

Kay was one heckl of a lady. She was one of my mom’s best friends. She was the head cook at school when my mom was the supervisor. I remember lots and lots of fun times and laughs with Kay and my mom. She will be missed by all that knew her. My heart goes out to the family. Kay..have a drink with my mom for me😘
