Wife of William Bush, Sr
----------
Obituary:
Departed this life Feb. 11, 1846, Mrs. Elizabeth Bush, in her sixty second year, wife of Mr. William Bush, Esqr., of Dayton, Indiana. Mrs. Bush had been laboring under a disease of the heart, for some months previous to her death, so that when death came, it did not find her unapprised of its approach.
Few women have lived among us more universally beloved, or died more generally lamented. As a wife and mother she was kind to a proverb. As a neighbor, she was charitable and affectionate to all, without distinction. AS a Christian she stood high in the estimation of her own brethren and sisters, being a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and not less so in the affections of other Christians de nominations. The sickness which immediately proceeded her death was not of very long continuance, but of great severity. She bore it with a good degree of Christian fortitude, and often prayed, and desired others to pray, that she might be enabled to endure her suffering with resignation to the will of her heavenly Father. She much desired the moment of her departure to come, having strong confidence in Christ her Lord, that the would lead her safely over Jordan's cold waves, and give her a glorious in heritance among the saints above. She spoke often of meeting her friends, who she believed had died in the Lord.
Her funeral was attended on the 12th by a very large concourse of friends and neighbors, in the Presbyterian church, where a sermon was preached by the Rev. James A. Carnahan fro the 1st. John 3:2, on the future blessedness of the sons of God. May this dispensation of Divine Providence be blessed to all the friends, and to the community where this sister in Israel has lived and died.
