LEBANON, NH — Emily Anne Buskey, 26, died March 27 at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative Care in Lebanon, NH. Emily was born in Lebanon, NH on July 10, 1993.

Growing up on Mascoma Lake, Em was an avid swimmer, boater and water enthusiast. Emily graduated from Lebanon high school in 2011. She was the proud goalie for Lebanon High Girls Soccer team, which took the 2010 State Championship.

From a young age, horses were a passion for Emily. She capitalized on every opportunity to pursue this passion, frequently trading hard work for any horse related experience.

Emily graduated from Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky in 2015, majoring in Equine management. Murray was a wonderful place for Em, where in her own words, she become a “did“(Shel Silverstein).

When Emily was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, a wise woman said cancer will not define her, instead it would come to show all those who cared deeply about her who she really is. The truth of that was demonstrated over and over.

Emily is survived by her mother, Lonnie Larrow, her brother, Jake Buskey and his wife Meghan, and her significant other Erik Falkengren. She was predeceased by her father, Ray Buskey. She will be sadly missed by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless dear and dedicated friends.

You never had to wonder what Emily was thinking or what her opinions were. She was a unique young woman, described by those close to her as spirited, feisty, genuine, determined, kind and loyal with a great sense of humor.

To honor Emily, her family suggests that regardless of circumstance or adversity, each of us try to live our best life a day at a time.

A celebration of Emily’s life will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions can be made to: Upper Valley Humane Society, PO Box 789, Lebanon, NH 03766.

An equine related scholarship will be established or chosen at a later date, those interested in contributing can contact her family.
