J. Frank Bushong Dies in Arlington

J. Frank Bushong, 60, of 1207 North Highland street, Arlington, was stricken with a heart attack on Saturday afternoon while working with some friends on the grounds of the Georgetown Lutheran Church, in Washington, and died enroute to the Georgetown hospital. A native of near Maurertown, he was born on the Bushong farm where his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Mahlon Bushong, resided, previous to moving to Manassas, many years ago, where the deceased was graduated from the Manassas high school. He came to Toms Brook as a young man and was employed for many years by the Rockdale Lime Co. While a resident of Toms Brook, he married Miss Emma Borden, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Borden. About twenty-three years ago, Mr. Bushong and family moved to Friendship Heights, Maryland, and 4 years later moved to their present home in Clarendon. For the past ten years he had been employed by the Kinghan Meat Co. in Washington. He was a past Master of Cassia Lodge of Masons of Woodstock, and later became affiliated with Columbia Masonic Lodge in Clarendon. Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Emma Borden Bushong; two daughters, Mrs. Virginia Fokides, of Washington, and Miss Elsie E. Bushong of Arlington, a brother, J. L. Bushong of Manassas, and an uncle, W. A. Bushong of Harrisville. Funeral services will be held Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the Georgetown Lutheran Church, of which Mr. Bushong was a devoted member, with his pastors, the Rev. Harold E. Beatty, in charge and under the direction of Columbia Masonic Lodge of which he was a member. Burial will be in the national Memorial Park Cemetery, near Falls Church.
