Elaine Bushey McDade of Tucson, Ariz., passed away on Oct. 31, 2010 after a long illness. She was 83.

Beloved and cherished wife of James R. McDade, she is survived by her husband; sisters, Patricia Bushey Stuhr and Roberta Bushey Glackin; and 22 nieces and nephews from the Bushey, Glackin and Stuhr families.

She was the daughter of the late Raymond and Alma Bushey of Brooklyn and Huntington, N.Y. Elaine lived life to the fullest during the 30 years that she and Jim lived in Aspen; she was an accomplished artist, avid skier and horsewoman, exceptional hostess and enthusiastic world traveler. She and Jim have made so much possible for their extended family and for others as well. She will be greatly missed and remain in our hearts forever.

The family will hold a private memorial in Denver at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her name to your favorite charity or to the American Heart Association.

Arrangements entrusted to Adair Funeral Homes-Avalon Chapel, (520) 742-7901.
