Jimmy was so precious to Aunt Faye. Grandma Rush (her
sister) watched Jimmy while Aunt Faye worked at the chair factory in
Bloomfield. Grandma loved Jimmy and was very close to Aunt Faye. Grandma told me that when
Jimmy was little he was allergic to milk. Aunt Faye tried thinning
it and mixing it with different things that the doctor suggested but he just could not tolerate it. Grandma gave him goat's
milk and he did very well on that but Aunt Faye never knew that
the milk grandma gave him and sent home for him was the goat's milk.
Grandma and Grandpa had cows, horses, chickens and goats. Wilbur, Faye and Jimmy lived in Bloomfield Indiana
in a cute bungalow. Then they moved to Bloomington.
Mom's best friend life-long was Beulah McGuire.
She worked for Aunt Faye after Wilbur and Aunt Faye
divorced. Aunt Fay and Jimmy moved to Bloomington IN and Aunt
Faye worked for
Aunt Faye died from cancer that started in the bone in her arm.
I remember when she came to our house and traveled on to the IU
hospital for tests. She was a warm kind person, always
smiling and positive; she lit up the room when she came in.
Jimmy married Sandy ? and they had two sons. They lived in
Bloomington Indiana. Jimmy died from "accidental drowning from
a boat." My grandparents said from the time he was a child,
he was deathly afraid of the water. Mom said he did not like being on water or
boating and his death was a shock to them. My grandmother was so sad
about Jimmy's death and said many times she wished she could know his sons.
