December 29, 2018
It is with loving remembrance that we announce the passing of Jura Businskas on
December 29, 2018.
Jura lived her life fully, approaching everything she did with love, selflessness and
positivity. Her thoughtfulness and genuine love for people impacted everyone she
met for the better. She had amazing strength of character, an incredible sense of
curiosity and created her own unique path in life. Family and the Divine were at the
center of her world. As a wife, mother and grandmama she nurtured, taught,
inspired and loved unconditionally.
Jura’s final days were spent with family, and when it was time to leave us, she
moved on with courage and acceptance. She leaves us rich in memories and her
love will live in our hearts forever, inspiring us everyday.
Jura is survived by Tony, her beloved husband of 45 years; her three loving children
Emilija (Greg), Tom (Laura), Paul (Jessica); her precious grandchildren Stella, Lucy,
Tyler and Joshua; her cherished sister Audra; nephew Romas (Natalie); and niece
