Dolores “Dee” Juanita Buell, age 95, of Sunbury, passed away late Friday evening, July 24, 2020 at her Feridean Commons residence, surrounded by family and friends.

Dee was born on May 4th, 1925, daughter of the late Mark Harry and Alma Ruth (Starner) Price. She attended Harlem High School, but graduated from Hilliard High School in 1943. Dee was the wife of the late Hugh Buell and together they ran the grain and livestock family farm and raised their family.  Dee was an active member of the community, serving in Grange, Eastern Star, and Farm Bureau Council and supported her children’s multiple school activities. She was fiercely proud of her children and grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 49 years, Hugh B. Buell; brothers David F. Price and Lonnie L. Price; son Terry A. Buell. She is survived by her brother Jack Price and sister JoAnn Windle; children, Tamara Caudy (Don) of Sunbury, Scott Buell (Jeanne) of Raleigh NC, and Daughter-in-Law Victoria Brookens Buell of Westerville; grandchildren Kimberly White (David), Lisa Spangenberg (Lee), Amy Caudy (Adam), Nicole Buell (James), and Devin Buell (Katie); and seven great grandchildren.

Our family is forever grateful to all of the people at Feridean Commons who gave Dee loving care.

There will be a private graveside service for family.

The family is under the care of DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Sunbury Community Library.

  • Tammy, Scott, Vickie and family so sorry for your loss. We had many great times and memories with Dee and Hugh fishing, camping and playing Euchre with that crazy gang of ours. Both Dee and Hugh were special people who have and will be missed by all.

  • Tammy, Don, Scott, Jeanne, Vickie and family…. Jim and I were so sorry to hear of Aunt Dee’s passing. She was such a lovely lady. Sometime in the future we should all get together to celebrate her life with the sharing of pictures and memories. Love, Jim and Cathy

  • To all of the Buell Family –
    Aunt Dee was a spunky little lady who always had a big smile and a sparkle in her eyes! I have fond memories of holidays at their home, her homemade popcorn balls and many photos around the house of her grandchildren who she loved telling stories about. I am proud to be her niece and bear her name in part of mine – named after she and my Mom (her sister) JoAnn.

    A Blessing to have known this special lady ….

  • My thoughts and prayers go out to Scott and the rest of the family at this sad hour.She will be truely missed by all.

  • Tammy and Scott, so sorry for your loss! She always had a big smile for everyone! Lovely person with a great personality! Will be missed by all who knew her!

  • My mother, Anita Long Evans and I visited Dolores after I was contacted by Scott about our genetic matches. It was a pleasant visit and gave us the opportunity to connect with this lovely lady.

  • Dearest Cousins Tammy and Scott and Family,
    I am saddened to learn of your mother’s passing but know you have many special memories to help you move through this time. My fond memories of summer visits to your family’s home in a subtle way helped shaped my vision and understanding of what family life should be.
    Your mom was always busy, but never, ever, too busy to welcome family and friends. Her laugh was real and the sparkle in her eyes so grand! and though she was short, she could “get a move on”!
    She taught me the beginning steps of sewing and allowed me to make many messes in her sewing space. We hung out together as your parents worked hard to run the family business. I always looked forward to that time, after supper, when everyone had a chance to rest and laugh.
    Now, your parents and “my” Uncle Hughey and Auntie Dee are resting and laughing together.

  • Dear family,
    My condolences. Dolores and Hugh represented our community so well and I am much appreciative of the fine job they did raising you all. You all made big positive marks at Big Walnut. Dolores will be missed, but remembered always. God bless you all.

  • Tammy, Scott, Vicki and families.
    You will miss, but never forget, all that she gave you. I remember her supporting you at the “Prince of Peace” competition’s long ago. Her encouragement was very evident. Sympathy is sent to all of you.

  • So sorry to hear about the loss of Dee. Such a beautiful and caring lady. May the family be blessed with many treasured memories. My fondest memory was our trip to Michigan, along with Barb, and Dee constantly worrying about us running out of gas as she sat knitting in the back seat. A fun trip, especially on “hat day”.
    My sincere sympathy to the family.

  • Dear Family,
    It’s t hard to find the words to share all the fond memories I have of being with your mom and dad. From the days Dee and I lived together at Mick’s when Hugh was in the Navy, to family gatherings, the huge family reunion they hosted at their new home, to traveling together to explore Wyoming. They were quite a couple, indeed!
    I am making a contribution to the Sunbury Community Library in memory of your mom.
    Sincerely, Aunt Iris

  • Scott,
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I pray God will grant you and your family strength and comfort as you go through this difficult time. 🙏
