Martha Ann Bush

January 1, 1939 — September 24, 2022

Martha Ann Bush passed away on Saturday, September 24, 2022. She was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on September 1, 1939 to Clarence and Bessie Warrick. Her father served in the United States Marine Corps. Martha and her younger sister Pam had fond memories of their childhood home on Fatherland Avenue, walking to church on Sunday mornings, keeping a garden, and listening to her daddy play music. Martha married Joseph Franklin Bush on January 26, 1957 in a tornado leveled Rosedale Baptist Church. Despite the storm, Martha refused to change her plan to be married in her uncle’s church. Joe and Martha had four children, Joe Jr., Jeff, Kathy, and David. She and Joe Sr. also adopted and raised Mitchell. Martha loved the beach, shopping, bowling with the Madison Bowling League, and connecting with other families on the ball field and at church and school events. She was a mother to countless baseball and football players while her husband coached. Martha enjoyed serving at First Baptist Madison and Grace Baptist Church.
