Cremation has been requested.  Graveside service will be held on June 27, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at the Busby Cemetery in rural Elk County, Kansas (CR27/Killdeer Road).  Memorials in Ailene's name can be made to the Longton Senior Center and may be left with the funeral home.  Countryside Funeral Home, 206 E.
