Leota Ferne ‘Lee’ Bussells, 92, the best shopping buddy anyone could ask for

On Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019, Leota Ferne “Lee” Bussells, 92, passed away peacefully at Atlantic Shores in Virginia Beach. She was born May 13, 1927, in Jefferson, Iowa.

She is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Donald F. Bussells; two children, Michael (Jana) and Patricia; four grandchildren, Tami (Tim), Tracie, Billy and Jill (Blake); and six great-grandchildren, Taylor, William B., Tessa, Luke, Emerson and William H.

She was an avid square dancer, a macaroni and cheese baking connoisseur, and the best shopping buddy anyone could ask for (ask Don how many hours he spent sitting on a bench in the mall while she shopped).

She left an impression on everyone whose path she crossed. The world was truly a better place with her in it. She will be sorely missed by all.

A celebration of her life will take place from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, in the Anchor Room at the Atlantic Shores Retirement Community, Virginia Beach.
