Dorothy Aleene Bush left Richland, Washington, to be welcomed into the arms of her loving Lord, Jesus Christ, on Monday, February 4, 2008, after a courageous battle with numerous ailments.

Aleene was born in her Grandma Mills' home in Shoshone on July 18, 1925, to Alla Lee and Beatrice (Mills) Richardson. After a few years in Minidoka, the family lived in Twin Falls, where they had a small truck farm. In her senior year of high school, she was secretary to the executive for the Snake River Area Council Boy Scouts of America before graduating in 1943 from Twin Falls High School. On November 17, 1943, she married Robert E. (Bob) Bush at Truax Army Airfield in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1944, Aleene joined the Twin Falls Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi.

When the war ended, Aleene and Bob lived in Twin Falls, where both sons were born, Gary Robert (1948) and Earl Lee (1950). In the summer of 1951, the family moved to Richland, where daughter, Dorothy Anne, was born (1954). Aleene lived in Richland for more than 56 years.

Aleene and Bob loved to travel with family and friends. Aleene inherited her father's "green thumb" and loved to garden. She was an excellent hostess, seamstress and cook. She also embroidered and crocheted, but she took the greatest delight in being with and doing things with her family and friends. Aleene was always a loving and caring woman who lived by a written budget. She was compassionate to others as well as her own family. She was a proponent of "loving your neighbor" and "doing to others as you'd like them to do for you" and instilled that in her children.

Since 1952, Aleene has been a member of Central United Protestant (CUP) Church in Richland. She and Bob instilled the love of God in their children's hearts.

She was a member of the Hanford Retirees Association and the Richland Seniors Association since their founding. Aleene and Bob were avid square and round dancers, having been members of the Prairie Shufflers Square Dance Club for the past 45 years. It was in the early years that they were honored with the Square and Folk Dance Federation of Washington MacGregor Award. She humbly served as secretary for many years on the Prairie Land Company Board of Directors until poor health compelled her to resign.

Aleene worked for the Hanford Federal Credit Union before working for Rockwell in the Material Department until her retirement in August 1987.

In her final months at home, three angels assisted mom and dad, Lupe Hernandez, Barbara Rodriguez and Carol Walker. Their loving and faithful service made the folks' life easier.

Aleene was preceded in death by her parents, Alla Lee and Beatrice (Mills) Richardson; and nephew, David Bush. She is survived by her best friend and husband of 64 years, Robert Eaton (Bob) Bush, sons, Gary (Carol) and Lee; daughter, Dorothy Anne Vowels (Chris), granddaughters, Kendra Kinlock (Jeremy), Kristin Sargent (Eric), Leslie Brock (Jeremy), Erin Casch (Lucas), Jessica Aleene Vowels and Lisa Bush; and great-granddaughter, Mackenzie Kinlock. Aleene's siblings are Alton Richardson (Leona), Beverly Richardson, Stanley Richardson (Barbe) and Barbara Parker (Boyd),a brother-in-law, Dean (Marge) Bush, a niece, Laura Shepherd, eight nephews, Kevin, Rick and Dan Richardson, Reid and Brad Richardson, Doug Parker, and Larry and Randy Bush and two aunts, Maude Mills and Nellie Henning.
