Obituary

BUSH, Joan Marie (nee Hoard) – We are saddened to announce that Grandma Joni passed away on October 6th, 2019 in her 91st year. She was surrounded by her loving family at her home at Hastings Manor. She will be a constant reminder of how love and inclusion are such an important part of everyone’s life. She was a kind, generous person of great strength and determination who readily shared her sense of humour and good sportsmanship to brighten the day of her important family and friends.

Joan was born January 20, 1929, at the Hoard homestead in Rawdon Township, near Stirling. She attended Williams one room School House and boarded in Stirling to attend Stirling High School. As a young girl she enjoyed the outdoors with her horses, dogs, cows and fishing. She trained at Peterborough Normal School for her career as a teacher. She consequently taught at Wellman’s Public School for two years and after marriage, taught three more years at Glen Ross Public School. She married Jack Miller Bush on July 8, l950 at Hoard’s United Church. She and Jack demonstrated their love of family with their six children. She was a bookkeeper for Jack’s business for many years. Like Jack, she was very civic minded and volunteered in the Stirling community. As a member of St. Paul’s United Church, she was very active in the United Church Women’s Group, in the Sunday School and as an Elder. Joan was also involved with the River Valley Women’s Institute at local and district level and also assisted with canvassing with the Heart and Stroke Association in her area. Her other interests which centered around her family included travelling, camping, knitting, quilting, baking, playing cards, gardening and visiting,

Joan is survived by her six children Jane (Ron) Stolz of Kingston, Susan (Ron) Turgeon of Frankford, John (Anne) of Frankford, Robert of Stirling, Douglas (Janet) of Stirling and David (Janice) of Stirling. She was so cherished and will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Kathryn & Breton Fleming, Michael & Gail Bush, Julie & Ryan Newman, Mark & Ashley Turgeon, Alison Stolz, Ryan & Lesley Stolz, Joanna Stolz & Eric Lee, Joshua, Kelsey, Meghan, Shannon, Daniel, Paige and Benjamin Bush, Spencer Lough, Shelby & Ted Taylor, Erica and Heather Corbett. And further, great-grandchildren Nicholas, Thomas, Charles, Baron, Alette, Layla, Rose and Gavin. She is also survived by sister Doris (Allan) Wells and sister-in-law Grace Bush, both of Stirling.

Joan’s service was held at St. Paul’s United Church on Friday, October 11th at 2:00 p.m. Rev. Bruce Fraser officiated. Interment was at Stirling Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Paul’s United Church, Canadian Diabetes Association or a Charity of your choice would be appreciated. Many thanks to the Staff at Belleville General Hospital for their expertise and care during Joan’s surgery and stay. The family also wishes to extend our sincere thank you for the continuous care and compassion given to Mom while residing at Hastings Manor, On-line condolences at www.rushnellfamilyservices.com

I spent many happy hours with Joan and Jack through hockey or just hanging out at the river. The Bush house was a second home to all of us 'river rats'.
Cherishing all of the happy memories, thinking of you all and wishing you peace and love.

Joan and Jack were a wonderful part of my growing up years in Wooler Stirling area and first cousins to my Mom. Whenever I came home, we would often see Jack and Joan at Stirling United Church or sometimes at their River home or other functions. Joan always had that welcoming smile, a moment to share a funny comment or story and a way of making her hearth a home to everyone wherever she might be. Even though I am 2000 miles away from my heart home, Joan was always one of those special people whom I thought of as family. Every year we exchanged Christmas cards and news bits and she kept me feeling linked to the family circle. I will miss her very much. With love, Gaye (Richards)
