BANGOR – Bonnie Lou Bush, 51, died Monday, Jan. 17, 2011, at a Bangor hospital. She was born Dec. 31, 1959, in Pomona, Calif., daughter of Charles and Pauline (Perry) Bush. Bonnie grew up in Brewer and was a 1978 graduate of Brewer High School. She worked as a dispatcher for Chemical Leeman Co. for 15 years, was the former store manager at the Odlin Road Irving, and was most recently an employee at Key Floral. Bonnie enjoyed reading good literature and had a deep view on the world at large. Bonnie was an exceptionally devoted mother and always found a way to keep her composure through even the hardest times. Though she was gregarious in her early years she kept mostly to herself in the later. She will always be remembered for her genuine and kindhearted personality and her ability at finding the irony and humor in life. Bonnie is survived by her children, Robby and Tricia Clark of Bangor; brothers, Sam Bush and his wife, Peggy, of Glenburn, Robert Bush and his wife, Michelle, of North Carolina, and Gary Bush and his wife, Elizabeth, of Baltimore; nieces and nephews, Chuck, Christie, Mark, Timmy, Scott and Andy. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Charles Bush III. A memorial reception will be held 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center St., Bangor. Those wishing to remember Bonnie in a special way may make gifts in her memory to American Cancer Society, One Bowdoin Hill Island, Suite 300, Topsham, ME 04086.
