Jean Bushnell of Malvern Jean Bushnell departed this earth for her Lord's "house with many rooms" on May 17, 2012. She passed peacefully in the comfort of her family at her home in Malvern. She was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, David Bushnell, and her younger brother Parker Griffeth. She is survived by her older brother, Youlden Griffeth, her daughters, Julie Howard and Lorna Davis, her sons, Mark Bushnell and Evan Bushnell, their spouses, and nine grandchildren. Jean Griffeth was born in 1924 in Haddonfield, N.J. to Howard Griffeth and Helen Hunt. She married David Bushnell in 1949 and they moved to the Paoli/Malvern area in 1952. She often said she was the proud "daughter of an electrician" and passed this confident spark on to her four children. She worked as an executive secretary for many years and was skilled in short hand and typing, which she used in her personal life to compose short stories and write many letters to family and friends. She enjoyed traveling and always compensated for the weather by "taking your sunshine with you". Jean enjoyed beaches and vacationed every summer at the Jersey shore, where many happy memories were created in Avalon, N.J. She was active in her church, volunteered at the Paoli Hospital for many years, and later enjoyed volunteering at the Rediscovery Shop cancer society store. Along the way she gathered many close friends. The family wishes to express their thanks to the Paoli Hospital staff for their kind and skilled care. In lieu of flowers a donation to the American Red Cross is suggested. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 11th at the Great Valley Presbyterian Church in Malvern.
