Janice Gayle Bush Obituary
Janice Gayle Bush, resident of Owasso, Okla., passed away Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2009, at the age of 60 years. Gayle was born March 24, 1949, in Carrizozo to William Travis and Betty Jewel (Frazier) Graham. She was raised in southern New Mexico until the family moved to Waxahachie, Texas, and later to Grapeland, Texas, where Gayle and Mark Wayne Bush were united in marriage on July 22, 1966. Later, they made their home in Amarillo, Texas, for 15 years before moving to Oklahoma City in 1987. In 1993, they established their home in Owasso.
Gayle's free spirit opened a world of wide-ranging exploration to her family and friends. She loved to take road trips, especially to New Mexico. When travel became difficult, her fast moving thoughts took everyone she knew with her into the realm of great ideas and dreams. She eagerly shared her love of music, crafts and painting by learning all she could and fostering the same appreciation in others. Gayle was always an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was an excellent student of Scripture and did her best to be a good missionary of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She celebrated her life spreading joy and giving unconditional love to her family and all she strived to serve.
Those who survive and hold many cherished memories are her husband, Mark, of the family home; children Marni Smith and husband, David, of Edmond, Okla., Traci Owens and husband, Kirk, of Yukon, Okla., Kristi Bush, of Dallas, Andi Gunter and husband, Brian, of Owasso, Jaymi Jarvis and husband, Thomas, of Norman, Okla., and Noah Bush, of Tulsa, Okla.; grandchildren Dawson Smith, Ashlyn, Sam and Boone Ownes, and Shaylee, Chazz and Izac Gunter; one sister, Deborah Zerm, of Norman; one nephew, Shea Zerm and wife, Myssie, of Dacula, Ga.; two nieces, Kyli Caldwell and Rayni Sullins, both of Oklahoma City; and grandnieces and grandnephews Jacob and Chloe Caldwell, Abigail Zerm and Bryceson Bradley.
Gayle was preceded in death by her parents.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2010, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 9300 N. 129th East Ave. in Owasso with Tulsa East Stake President James Johnson officiating. Burial will follow at Floral Haven Cemetery, 6500 S. 129th E Ave., Broken Arrow, Okla.
