Margaret O. Bush
MARGARET O. BUSH April 24, 1924 April 23, 2021 Margaret Ozelle Bush died at her home in Colorado Springs on April 23, 2021, one day before her 97th birthday. Margaret was born on April 24, 1921, in Wichita, KS, to William Earl & Agnes Hyatt. Margaret is survived by her three children, Michael Bush (Gretchen) of Sonoma, CA, and Patricia Bush and Shari Henson, both of Colorado Springs. She was blessed with six grandchildren, Kevin Prescott (Rae Lynn), Sean Prescott, Kelly Harrington (Monty), Amelia Kennedy, Austin Bush, and Heather Hinrichsen, thirteen great-grandchildren, and four greatgreat-grandchildren. Margaret was preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 years, Lt.Col. Donald W. Bush, in 2007, as well as her parents, her two brothers - Lyman Hyatt and Dick Hyatt, and her sister, Eileen Isaacson. Raised in Wichita, KS, Margaret graduated from Wichita East High School and married Don on May 8, 1942. In 1943, Don enlisted in the Air Force, which took him to Europe for nearly two years during WWII. In 1944, their first daughter, Patricia, was born while Don was away. Not long after the war, two more children arrived: Michael, 1946, and Sharon, 1948. One of her favorite occupations was color-tinting sepia portraits by hand. When Don was recalled by the Air Force in 1951, Margaret and the children moved with him to Tinker Air Force Base in OK. From there, Don and Margaret began a 15-year tour of various stateside and overseas assignments. Margaret took great pride as an officer's wife and mother in the care and keeping of their home and family. In 1966, Don and Margaret retired to NM, moving later to Howard, CO, where they owned and operated Sugarbush Campground. They moved to Colorado Springs in 1972, lived for a time in a mountain home in Chipita Park, and settled again in Colorado Springs in 1988. A talented soprano, Margaret enjoyed singing and listening to opera; she was an accomplished homemaker and a kind and loving mother, granny, and aunt to her family. A funeral service will be held at Memorial Gardens Funeral Home and Cemetery on Thursday, April 29, at 11 a.m., followed by a graveside service.
