Willie Lou Nixon Bush was born in Marshallville, Georgia on February 22, 1931. God called her home on Wednesday March 13, 2019.
Mrs. Willie Lou exchanged vows with her devoted husband Tommie Bush on June 30, 1973. They’re both resting together now. She enjoyed fishing, sewing, bowling, cooking, traveling and planting in her garden. She was the queen of fashion and loved her hats. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, sister and friend.
The Order of the Eastern Star was a very important part of Mrs. Bush’s life. She was also a Prime timer's member of First Baptist Church. She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings. She met all her challenges without fear. She was a warrior at heart. She was willing to battle for a worthy cause rather than shrinking in defeat. While many people let their illness define them and drop anchor, she chose to redefine her life. She lived a life that gave her purpose and meaning. She was one strong, fierce Godly woman, who was loved by many.
She was preceded in death by her parents Mary Lue and Robert Nixon; son Johnnie Johnson, sisters Ilean Davis and Annie Nixon; brothers: Lewis Nixon and Robert Nixon.
