Evelyn “Anderson” Jeannine Bush
March 31, 1930 - January 26, 2013
Evelyn Jeannine Anderson Bush, 82, died peacefully Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013.
Born July 31, 1930, in Samaria, Idaho, to Richard Morse Anderson and Vivian Clara Wright, she was raised in Provo and graduated from Provo High. She met her sweetheart, Wayne Bowen Bush, when her cousins took her to a dance in Malad, Idaho, and married Aug. 16, 1949.
She and her husband traveled from Idaho to Ohio back to Idaho, then Denver, to Florida, back to Denver, finally settling the past 37 years in The Dalles, Ore. She supported her husband and her family, developed her own talents for painting, candle making, quilting and sewing, collecting enough material to fill a house.
She grew roses, dahlias and peonies that filled the yard with color. Her contributions and service spanned seven decades. A highlight of church service was returning to Ohio to fulfill a mission with her husband.
An avid genealogist, she and her son Kirk researched generations stretching back to 5th century Wales.
Preceded in death by her brother Richard and her sister Elaine, as well as her mother and father, she leaves behind her husband Wayne; siblings Bill (Norma), Vivian (Neb), Roy (Rita), Michael (Shirley) and Kathleen (Gordon); children Pam, David (Cathy), Kirk (Debbie), Douglas (Ann) and Maryanne (Glenn) as well as 25 grandchildren and 37 great grandchildren, with two on the way.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, at the Allen-Hall Mortuary, 34 East Center Street in Logan. A viewing is set prior to services beginning at 10 a.m. Interment will be in Malad at 1 p.m. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.allenmortuaries.net
