She was most recently preceded in death by her loving husband, Richard Bush, who passed in April 2018. They were married Nov. 12, 1959.

Survivors include one son, Mark (Cheryl) Bush of Youngstown, Ohio; one daughter, Gayle Baehr
(fiancé Kevin Smith) of Gahanna, Ohio; three grandsons, Zachery and Nickolas Bush, both of Ohio and Christopher Baehr of California; one sister, Rebecca (Tom) Huff of Ashland; one brother, Raymond Depler of Groveport, Ohio.

Funeral services will be held, Friday, January 17, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. in the Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home with Reverend Michael Koch officiating.
