Andrea M. Bush

May 21, 1944March 17, 2020

Andrea Massey Bush, 75, passed away Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at The Blake in Flowood.

She was born May 21, 1944, in Laurel, Mississippi, a daughter of the late Curtis Aven Massey and Rachel Shows Massey.

Mrs. Bush retired from the Pearl Public School Systems after many dedicated years as a teaching assistant. She joined McLaurin Heights Baptist Church on October 10, 1965, and she attended services faithfully until her failing health prevented her from doing so. In her free time she enjoyed gardening, traveling, RV camping, and spending time with the circle of friends she and her husband connected with over the years. Perhaps her happiest moments were spent with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren.

Her heart for service to others was never more evident than in her volunteer work, and Mrs. Bush assisted with numerous activities designed to aid or benefit others. Among her favorites were the homebound ministry through McLaurin Heights Baptist, working “the Pearly Gates” for the Pearl Education Foundation, Band Boosters, and Pearl school athletics.

Survivors include her husband of 57 years, James W. Bush; son, Heath Bush and wife Melissa; daughters, Kellie Saulsbury and husband Mike, and Terri Houston and husband David; brother, Dr. Edwin Ray Massey and wife Jo Carol; grandchildren, Griffin Bush, Garrett Bush, Josh Saulsbury and fiancée Rachel Putnam, Darby Saulsbury, Allie Houston and Brennan Houston; and several nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Graveside services will be held at 11:00am, Saturday, March 21, 2020, in Floral Hills Memory Gardens. In consideration of current events, the family will also hold a Memorial Service for Mrs. Bush at a later date when more friends and family can safely attend. Details for the Memorial Service will be posted as soon as available.

Memorials may be made to McLaurin Heights Baptist Church.

I enjoyed a short visit with Mrs. Bush in the exercise therapy room. She was smiling as we talked about school and family.
May there be rose gardens for her in heaven. 💐

Such a great friend. Loved her laugh. She loved playing games. Had a big bag of games that she carried. She loved her family and friends and puppies.
She will be missed by many people. So glad she was a part of my life.

I have so many fond memories of Mrs. Ann over the years, from the softball field to church. She was always smiling and laughing. She loved life. Prayers for all the Bush family.
