Edward and Patricia Buesking’s legacy lives on through the Hancock County Community Foundation. Thanks to a generous planned gift from Patricia Buesking’s Trust, three new funds were established in Edward and Patricia’s memory.
Edward Buesking retired after working 37 years for Elanco. Edward was the vice president of manufacturing, distribution, and procurement. Patricia Buesking received her degree from Harrow College in London, England, and moved to the United States shortly after. Pat spent a good portion of her career flipping properties.
Both were members of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, and they had a Historic Hoosier Homestead in New Palestine that had been in their family for more than 100 years. Pat and Ed would host a big party on their property every year that was greatly attended by friends and family. Patricia was described as having a heart of gold and was a long-time supporter of the Greenfield FOP #140. Edward passed away in 1995 at the age of 80. Patricia passed away in 2020 at the age of 86.
HCCF is honored to steward the Edward and Patricia Buesking Scholarship Endowment Fund, which provides support to Sugar Creek Township residents pursuing a bachelor’s degree or post-graduate course of study.
