Mrs. Carrie Green Bush of Abingdon, Caistor township, one of the oldest residents of this district, passed away yesterday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jessie Snyder. She was in her 94th year, and up until a few days ago enjoyed exceptionally good health for one of her advanced years.
The late Mrs. Bush was born in Abingdon, and has resided there all her life. In 1927 she and her husband, who predeceased her about a year later, celebrated the diamond jubilee of their wedding. She was a member of the Abingdon Baptist Church, and took a keen interest in the various activities which were centred in it.
Four other daughters with Mrs. Snyder survive: Mrs. Wallace Young and Mrs. John McDougal, both of Abingdon; Mrs. William McKinnell, South Grimsby Township and Mrs. U. Stewart, Elizabeth St., Grimsby, as well as one son, Murray, who also resides at Abingdon. Five of Mrs. Bush's brothers also survive her. They are residing at Seattle, Washington, Oakland, California, and Abingdon.
At the time that the late Mr. and Mrs. Bush celebrated their diamond jubilee there were living some 24 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.
