Margaret Blackwell Bush

Stapleton, GA –          Margaret Thelma Blackwell Bush, 96, peacefully entered into her eternal rest Wednesday morning, March 2, 2022 at Jefferson Hospital in Louisville. Services to celebrate her life will be held at the Word Aflame Pentecostal Church, located at 7054 Clark Road, Stapleton, at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday afternoon, March 15, 2022 with Pastor Ben Bush officiating.  

Because of the family’s respect and concern for public health and safety during this COVID-19 pandemic, the family requests that social distancing and other safety precautions be followed.  The wearing of face masks is strongly encouraged during any gathering.  

Margaret loved her job as dietician and supervisor for the Dietic Department at University Hospital, retiring after 42 years of service.  The mother of courage, independent and great sacrifice, Margaret was a pillar of strength for her family whom she loved dearly. A beloved Mother and Nanny, she will be greatly missed.
