She learned early to help around the house, both cooking and cleaning. At the age of 14, she had her first summer job, working at the Lenhart in Bemus Point. She waited table, and also helped in the kitchen. She did this for seven summers. Her Mother brought her here on the steamer from Jamestown. Belle belonged to the marching band sponsored by the local insurance agency in Falconer, all girls. When she was to be a high school junior, she dropped out of school in order to go to work and earn money so she could go to St. Louis with the band. She also played basketball for the Falconer High School, being a tall person at an early age. When she married Sherman Skillman (from Bemus) she became a farm wife, as he was running the family farm along with his brother Elmer. Their daughter Lillian was born in 1924. Sherm built them a home on the Ellery Center Road in 1932. Sherm left the farm and went into business with his brother Frank at Skillman’s Store on Main St., Bemus Point. As a general store they opened daily at 7 until 6, except Saturday when they stayed open until 11 p.m. Tragedy struck when their daughter fell ill with a strep infection, for which there was no real treatment. Belle was a girl scout leader when Lillian, their daughter, was growing up. After Lillian’s death she worked with her husband in the store. She had always been a great cook. When her husband was making maple syrup, she cooked up wonderful maple cream, a toast topping which was sold in Skillman’s Store. She worked hard at any undertaking, and said it was the secret to a long life.

In 1940 Dr. Bugbee was appointed editor and executive secretary of the editorial division of the Board of Education of the Methodist Church, having his office at Nashville, Tenn. He resigned that position in 1945 and retired to Bemus Point, the village in which he began his first pastorate two years before the turn of the century. He had retained his membership in the Northern Minnesota Conference. In the first World War, Dr. Bugbee served at several military camps under the U.M.C.A., and in the second world conflict he was a favorite speaker in bond drives and other campaigns for the promotion of the war effort.
