Joene Bush

After 80 wonderful years, Joene Agnes Bush (nee Riggs), our wife, our mother, and our friend passed away on February 25, 2015 in Scottsdale Arizona.

Joene was born in Boise Idaho, December 17, 1934, to Teresa and Joseph Ryan. She Attended school at Holy Names Academy in Spokane WA, and worked for Pacific Bell Company as a telephone operator. Joene met her husband, Clay, the love of her life, when he was serving in the Air Force. They were married in Spokane, working together, for Clay’s diploma at Gonzaga University. They moved to Bellevue and raised their five children and retired to Scottsdale AZ.

Joene adored spending time with her family, reading, scrapbooking, sewing, quilting and her two cats, Josie and Willow. Joene was such a kind hearted, loving, and sensitive sole who would do anything for her friends, neighbors, and family.

She is survived by her husband, Eldon Clay Bush and her five children; Cathleen, Laureen, Stephen, Jennifer and Joseph. Eleven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.

God has called for Joene and now will be our Angel, to give us strength and hope. We know she listens and hears our prayers, wishes and dreams.

May she be resting peacefully and happily with those who were so dear. Joene’s beloved Mother, Teresa Ryan Riggs and her Father Joseph Ryan, her brothers Michael Riggs and Richard Riggs.

Services for our mother will be held on March 6th @10:30am, in the St. Katharine Drexel Chapel at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church. 3801 E. Greenway Rd. Phoenix, AZ 85032
