Janet Bush Obituary

Janet Lou Bush (Knoll) 90, of Hilliard, Ohio passed away in the early morning on March 6, 2024 peacefully after a brief illness.  She was born in Norwalk, Ohio on September 6, 1933, as Janet Lou Hendrickson, the daughter of Charles and Adah Hendrickson in a small house on Woodlawn Avenue.  Janet has one sister, Sandra Jean Hendrickson (Hintz) from Ithaca, NY.  Graduated from Norwalk High School in 1951.  She married her high school sweetheart, Thomas Knoll on December 21, 1952, in Berlin Heights, Ohio.

Janet lost her love of her life after only 13 years of marriage and 5 children later at 32 young years of age.  Janet was thrust into being a mother to 5 young children on her own, ages 12 through 1 year old.  We are at peace knowing she is with our father, her soul mate as well as our heavenly father and this joy fills our hearts with such comfort.  After 17 years of being a widow Janet married Everett Bush after meeting him at a dance.  They enjoyed 25 years together.

Janet was such a kind, amazingly patient woman with so much love to give even after losing two husbands in her 90 years of life.  Janet loved to dance, sketch, draw, paint and always whistled while she was even doing housework.  She was funny, flirtatious and she could take a nap at a 15 second interval at the drop of a hat even while eating as well as enjoyed red hat society.     

She is survived by her 5 sons, Tim (Gaylene), Knoll, Mark (Jan) Knoll, Ron (Cindy) Knoll, Brian Knoll and 1 daughter, Cindy Lou Evans (Michael) who Janet has lived with for the past 5 years.  She has 3 stepsons, Dan (Wanda) Bush, Dale (Beth) Bush, Gene (Cheryl) Bush and 1 stepdaughter Janie Shade.

Janet has 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren within her immediate family, Derek, Rick, Heather, Timothy, Ryan, Tommy, Alison, Jonathan, Travis, Lyndsey, Shannon, Tyler and Dante that she adored as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and step grand and great grandchildren that she remembered with her loving cards and gifts.   She is preceded in death by her second husband, Everett Bush in 2009.

Friends will be received on Monday March 11, 2024 from 4 – 7 p.m. at Foos & Foos Funeral Service, 151 Yorkshire Place, Bellevue, Ohio.  A funeral service will be held at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at 11 a.m.  Burial will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, Norwalk, Ohio.  

Memorials can be sent to a charity for single mothers in Ohio.
