Longtime UMA Member Dies

I regret to inform you that longtime active member and volunteer George Bush, husband of Jean Bush, passed away last night. Services will be held Thursday afternoon, 3:00 PM Central, at the Kingswood United Methodist Church in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Other details are pending at this time.

George worked faithfully alongside Jean for many years as they helped plan and deliver UMA conferences. When I became CEO, Jean and George played a key role in our 2011 restructuring meeting in Milwaukee. Simply put, it would not have happened without their generous donation of time and effort because we had no other UMA staff. George always had a smile on his face, a cheery voice, a twinkle in his eye, and a willing and generous spirit. He will be solely missed.

Please join us in praying for Jean and the rest of the family.
