Obituary: Beryl Crockett Newsome Bush

Beryl Crockett Newsome Bush, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and friend joined her eternal companion Thursday evening, March 1, 2001 in Lehi, Utah.

She was born on February 28th, 1913 in Montpelier, Idaho to Emer and Mary Jane Hamp Crockett. She was their first of three daughters after having three sons. She was preceded in death by her three brothers and one sister. She is survived by her sister

Florence C. Lyon of Sacramento, California.

On October 5, 1935 she married her high school sweetheart, Donald William

Newsome. Their union was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Don died November 13, 1993. On July 6,1999, Beryl married Ray Bush at the Seville Retirement Center in Orem. Ray died in April of 2000.

Beryl was preceded in death by her infant daughter Kathleen Crockett Newsome, son D. Bart Newsome, and great-grandson Dane Morgan Bernhard. She is survived by her daughter, Jane Newsome Walker and son-in-law Jess M. Walker of Orem; eight grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and one great- great-grandchild.

Mother had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and served faithfully in many church callings. She also loved her membership in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She was an avid sports fan, especially of the "Running Ute's". Her greatest joy came from her time spent with her family. She was a kind and caring person who

always had time for the "little ones".

The family would like to extend their thanks to all the staff at Greenwood Manor for the compassionate care they gave her. We also want to express our appreciation to Hospice for Utah and especially her loving nurse Margaret Buss Taylor.

Funeral services will be held Monday, March 5, 2001 at 12 noon in the Russon Brothers Mortuary, 255 South 200 East, Salt Lake City, Utah. Friends may call on Monday one hour prior to the services. Interment will be in the Wasatch Lawn Cemetery,
