Feb 5, 1918 – June 9, 2009
My grandfather, Oran Bush, married her on October 3rd in 1936 – the same year she graduated from Warren High School, she was only 18 years old. They made a modest living of $100 the first year they were married.
I have so many stories about grandma and grandpa – I would not even know where to begin. I can tell you they loved to play dominoes, they used camphophenic as a cure all and I once saw my grandma wash a mouth out with soap and water.
This is where my dad grew up. The house was much smaller back in the day – this is with the extension.
This is were grandpa would take us for shooting pratice. He was not really a hunter, more of a fisherman, so we mostly shot at coke and coffee cans. This is a tradition that still holds strong at my dad’s farm. Even my “city boy” husband fired a few rounds at a can or two.
