July 4, 1922 ~ August 24, 2007
Greece: Entered heaven, August 24, 2007 at age 85. Proud to share our nation's birthday, she was born on the 4th of July 1922. Predeceased by her loving husband of more than 50 years, Harold 'Ted' Lush; brother, Michael Nebbia. She is survived by her daughter, Carol Lush-Ehmann & her husband Philip Ehmann, with whom she has had a home for the last few years; son, Richard (Patricia) Lush; grandchildren, Kate (Jeff) DiAmico, Bart (Deirdre) Lush, Meg (Ryan) Camire, Matt Lush; great-grandchildren, Luke & Abigail DiAmico, twins Kevin & Declan Lush. Stepson, Gordon Lush; step grandchildren, Donna Stair, Robert (Dianna) Lush, James (Ruth) Lush; step-great-grandchildren, Katie (Ted) Sacra, Rebecca Lush; step great-great-grandson, T.J. Sacra, Jr.. She also leaves her brothers, Thomas (Gitte) Nebbia, John (Sally Nebbia) & sisters Connie (Archie) Hatfield & Joan Comeau; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins & other relatives. Jennie also leaves her beloved feline kids, Teddy & Maggie and grand-cats, Jennie (her namesake) & Data. She has a large circle of friends including best friend, Elsie Cresswell & her adopted family at her seasonal cottage on Kayuta Lake in the Adirondacks. Some very special friends who became family & made her last months joyful are Sherry & John Kozlowski & Linda Foster. Jennie was a much loved & valued parishioner at St. George's Episcopal Church in Hilton, NY known for her spirit & enthusiasm; & a member of the Altar Guild, Daughters of the King & Silver Spoons. She was best known for volunteering to help with any fundraiser, especially if making crafts, her specialty, was involved. Jennie was a proud member for more than 60 years of the Improved Order of Redmen Degree of Pocahontas & served as Deputy Great Pocahontas of NYS; always ready to lend a hand, full of ideas for craft sales, bazaars, etc. She also worked a number of years as a Home Health Aide, a job she loved, that suited her compassionate & giving nature extremely well & which was essentially a part of her that she extended to the elderly throughout her life. Jennie had many gifts: a generous heart, a great desire to help & a lot of creative talent. In her later years she poured that creativity into her greatest love, craftwork & became known as the 'Craft Lady.' She gave her handiwork to all '€œ for fundraisers, as gifts to loved ones & friends, as 'thank you's' to acquaintances; & to near perfect strangers just because she took a liking to someone or felt they could use a smile. In that spirit, we, her children, cannot think of a more fitting memorial, than the creation of 'The Jennie Fund' which would be used to buy craft supplies to help continue Jennie's legacy of creating craftwork at her church for Sunday School, gifts or fundraisers. In lieu of flowers, therefore, contributions can be sent to: 'The Jennie Fund', St. George's Episcopal Church, 635 Wilder Rd., Hilton, NY 14468. Friends may call Monday 2-4 & 7-9 P.M. at Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, 1075 Long Pond Road. Her Funeral Service will be held, Tuesday 10 A.M. at St. George's Episcopal Church, 635 Old Wilder Road. Interment in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
