Genevieve “Jean” was born in Saskatchewan, Canada on November 30, 1916, to Wasyl “Bill” and Agnes (Goski) Kot. In January 25, 1945, she married Stanley Buschta in Canada and they moved to the States. From 1945 to 1970 they lived in the cities of Buffalo, NY; Detroit, MI; Minot, ND; and Williston, ND. In the fall of 1970 Stan started working at BNI Coal in Center, ND. The family moved to Center the following year and they made their home and raised their family there. In 2011, Jean and Stanley moved to assisted living in Bismarck. Stanley passed away in February 2018.
Jean enjoyed playing cards and Bunco and doing crossword puzzles. She loved reading, gardening, and never missed an episode of her favorite daytime “soaps.”
Jean is survived by three children, Duane (Jeannie) Buschta, Jackie Buschta, and Jim (Kristie) Buschta; two grandchildren, Chris (Paula) Buschta and Julie Schatz-Stevens; and four great-grandchildren.
