Beth (Bush) Davis

March 17, 2022


Mrs. Beth Bush Davis, 76, died Thursday, March 17, 2022, in the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey.

Family and friends are invited to the visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Monday, March 21st. from 5:00-8:00PM.  On Tuesday, March 22nd., at 9:30AM, everyone will start to gather in the funeral home where a prayer service will be offered by the Reverend Bryan Wolf at 10:00AM.  The prayers of committal, again by Reverend Wolf, will precede Mrs. Davis’s burial in the family plot in St. Gertrude Cemetery in Colonia, New Jersey.

Mrs. Davis, the daughter of the late Elizabeth and Clarence Bush, was born in Jersey City, New Jersey.  She lived for a time in Rahway, New Jersey, before settling in Linden, New Jersey in 1971.

Mrs. Davis started working on June 10, 1998, for the Union County Transportation in Springfield, New Jersey and she earned her long-anticipated retirement in February of 2015.

Mrs. Davis was what many people would consider a “homebody”.  She enjoyed being in her home and making it as comfy and cozy as could be.  Mrs. Davis enriched it visually by her love of gardening as shown in the beautiful flowers that she planted and flourished under her “green thumb”.  She was an avid reading and was very prolific in her selections of what and how much she read.  Mrs. Davis was also a “Jersey Girl” in that she loved visiting the Jersey shore, especially Wildwood Crest.  In her younger days she was known to tickle the ivories with her piano playing.  All in all, the most important part of Mrs. Davis’s life that gave her joy beyond measure was simply spending time with her family, laughing with them, and making wonderful memories.

Predeceased by her daughter, Amy E. Davis on July 6, 2017, Mrs. Davis is survived by her husband of fifty-five years, Thomas Davis; her daughter, Tricia Ann Hughes and her husband, Michael; her grandson, Joseph D. Hughes; her brother, Richard Bush and his wife, Lorraine and her sister, Tina Lakata and her husband, Jimmy.

Mrs. Davis was the center of life for her family, and she had an abundance of love for everyone in her sphere.  She will be deeply missed but will never be forgotten.
