Colleen Johnson Rushing Obituary
COLLEEN JOHNSON RUSHING passed from this life to the next on September 11, 2016. Born on March 19, 1930 Colleen grew up in the Los Angeles area during the depression years and considered herself a city girl at heart. She married the finest man she ever knew, Marion T. Rushing, in 1950 and graduated from UCLA in 1952. The Rushings moved to Redlands, CA with their three children in 1962, where she worked many years in special education for the school district. She was a voracious reader and made countless donations to the local library and other charities during her lifetime. She was humble, kind, witty, independent, self-reliant, and courageous to the end. She will be missed deeply by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by her children: Janet & Paul Szuszkiewicz, Tracy & Rick Werner, Kent Rushing, and her beloved grandchildren: Jill Szuszkiewicz, Kristen & Josh Keller, Keira Rushing, and Colleen Morgan Rushing. A committal ceremony is on Wednesday, September 28 at the Riverside National Cemetery with a reception at the home following. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to in her honor.
