Dorothy (Dot) G. Aubushon, went home to be with the Lord in the early hours of Sunday August 2, 2020, days before her 82nd birthday. Born in south west Ashton, Nebraska on August 7, 1938, Dorothy was the first of 4 daughters of Elisabeth (Liz) and Stanley (Stan) Roschynialski. After completing High School, Dorothy got an office job at the Boy Scouts of America which is where she met the love of her life, Charles (Chuck) Aubushon. Dorothy and Chuck married on June 20, 1959 at the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Grand Island, NE. The couple settled in Grand Island, had 3 children and built a successful construction and remodeling business.
Dorothy was a giant, impacting many and achieving much in life. A very determined woman, she learned how to run a small business while taking care of her family. She was an avid gardener, canner and seamstress. She was resourceful, and even when things were tight her family always had what they needed. While she was tough, Dorothy had a deep love for the people around her. Her house was always open and welcoming to those in need. Dorothy and Chuck were leaders in the Boy Scouts, and many of the young men looked at Dorothy and Chuck as their second parents. Dorothy organized large family gatherings for holidays, took care of her parents as they aged, and was an avid member of her lady coffee-club. She always remembered a birthday, an anniversary or a holiday with a card and a note. In the late evening hours and after all the day’s chores were done, Dorothy loved to pour over a book or some needlework project, always with a cat or a dog by her side.
Dorothy found inner peace in her later years, accepting Christ as her personal savior. She passed away peacefully, family by her side and angels leading her home. She is survived by her husband Charles Aubushon; first son Christopher Aubushon and his family Anne Aubushon (spouse), Caitlin Triplett (granddaughter), Ethan Triplett (spouse); second son Douglas Aubushon and his family Barbara Aubushon (spouse), Brooklyn (granddaughter); and daughter Patricia Skeie and her family Tom Skeie (spouse), Anton Skeie (grandson), Tatiana Skeie (spouse).
