Nellie G. Bucher

June 19th, 1934 – May 30th, 2017

Nellie G. Bucher, 82, of Astoria, passed away at 7:40 pm on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at her daughters home in Astoria. She was born on June 19, 1934 in Canton, the daughter of Henry and Pearl (Peterman) Busby. Nellie married William “Willie” Bucher on November 30, 1954 in Astoria. He preceded her in death on August 13, 2014.

Also preceding her in death is her grandson, Erik Bucher, 2 brothers, Morris and Don Busby, and her sister, Hildreth Busby.

Survivors include her daughter, Lu Ann (and Charlie) Bollinger of Astoria, 2 sons, Alvin Bucher of Astoria, and Larry (and Lisa) Bucher of Astoria, 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Nellie was a homemaker.

Nellie was loved by many and she thought the world of her children and grandchildren.

Nellie had three special friends that were always there for her, Nancy Swan, Jenny Hood and Sandy Rawley Page. She also had two girls she thought of as daughters, her niece, Pam Shaw and Lily Powell. She considered Hershel and Beulah Jennings to be her second parents.

Nellie always put a huge garden in. She loved to cook big meals and canning. Her green tomato pickle relish was the best and lime pickles were also really good.

“Mom’s in heaven cooking something for Dad. Mom when I get to heaven, I want a big glass of your famous sweet tea. Go rest high on that mountain and tell Dad and Erik hi.”

Nellie was a member of the Vermont Christian Church in Vermont.

Services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at Shawgo Memorial Home in Astoria. Pastor Fred Fritz will be officiating. A visitation will be held 1 hour prior to the service on Saturday at the funeral home. Interment will be in the Astoria Cemetery in Astoria. Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or the Astoria Christian Church.

I grew up around Nellie and Willie by my grandparents Gerald and Joan Tomlinson being friends with them. I used to love traveling to Astoria to visit the big house they had and have many memories of sittung at the booth of the kitchen table drinking the very sweet tea and pickles yiu spoke if or her cooking a big meal for us all. Nellie and Willie were both amazing people I am very honored to have ever known abd counted as dear friends. I am sorry for your loss and pray for comfort for your family at this time. May God give you confort til you are reunited again. Jennifer Tomlinson
