Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Marilee (Scanlan) Buschmann, 79, passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her loving family on June 11th, 2018. Marilee was born to Louis Thomas and Mary Jean (Walker) Scanlan, June 9, 1939 in St Joseph Missouri. She was the oldest of four children, Emily “Lou” Muller, Lawrence “Larry” Scanlan and Linda Thompson. Marilee was raised in the Kansas City area, spending the early years of her marriage to Edgar Buschmann in Paducah, Kentucky before returning to Kansas City in the early 60’s. Most of Marilee’s time was spent raising her family in the Kansas City area, although she and Ed enjoyed the “farm-life” for several years in Chillicothe. Around 2006, she moved to California to enjoy some time with her California kids and grandkids. Her heart always belonged to the Midwest and when it was time to retire, she returned to Raytown and lived with her daughter Beth. Marilee leaves behind 7 children, 11 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren that she loved dearly.
