Lisa Dianne Bush, 61, Princeton, Kan., passed away on August 5, 2019 surrounded by family and friends. Lisa was born on July 13, 1958 in Kansas City, Kan., to Larry and Patricia (Lane) Bush. She grew up in Edwardsville, Kan., and raised her three children in Olathe, Kan. She received a Bachelor of Science in Geology from the University of Kansas in 2001, and spent 14 years as a groundwater specialist.

All her life, Lisa loved working with textiles. While living in Olathe, Lisa was known for sewing uniforms for local schools' cheerleading squads, bands and choirs. For the last several years, Lisa owned a small business specializing in handmade goods, quilting and seamstressing. She was an expert craftsman, skilled in sewing, quilting, spinning, knitting, weaving and more. Her works of art are enjoyed by friends, family and patrons across the country.

Lisa spent her time with a broad network of friends. On any given day you could find her quilt shop hopping with the Stitchin’ Grannies or knitting with the Chicks with Sticks. She loved teaching others and passing along the art of her craft.

Lastly, Lisa held an unwavering belief in God. She was an avid student of Christianity and a member of Homewood Community Bible Church. She was a Deaconess and her service to the church included helping with Sunday morning programs and preparing communion.

Lisa was preceded in death by her father, Larry Bush, and nephew, Christiaan Bush.
