Janet Arlene Bush
April 17th 1939-May 8th 2018

       Jan Bush, 79 of Hermiston, passed away Tuesday May 8th 2018 in Richland WA surrounded by her family. Jan also known by those who adored her as Mums, was a bright light and strong force in all the lives she touched. 
       Mums was a fiercely loved wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. Her love of gardening, roses, Christmas, summer sun and her family was undeniable. Her smile would brighten up every room she entered. 
      Mums fought a long and hard illness for many years with a grace and determination that was absolutely inspirational. She was the most strong willed person to ever be reckoned with. During her fight she was able to touch the lives of so many and she will be immeasurably missed.
      At her request, cremation and a family service will take place. A private family interment will be in the Hermiston Cemetery.
     Jan  is survived by her husband of 45 years, Herman Bush, her son Jon Rayburn, her daughters Lisa Larsen and Terri Bernstein, as well as her grandchildren Adam Archer, Alexa Whalen, Olivia Bernstein and Gigi Larsen. 
     Her family takes comfort in knowing she is now reunited in Heaven with her daughter Cheryl, whom she missed every single day. 

She will forever be greatly missed by her family and in their hearts always.

Family suggests memorial donations be made to the Polycystic Kidney Foundation 8330 Ward Parkway Suite 510 Kansas City, MO 64114.
