Mauveen "Moe"Bush

by JeffGreen

For 12 years in the late 1980s and throughout most of the 1990s Moe Bush was the force behind The North Frontenac News. She started with the News as a volunteer in the 1970s, eventually taking on a technical role. She left the paper in the early 1980s and worked at Oconto Propane before returning to the News in 1986. She was named Managing Editor in 1987, a post she held until 1998.

Moe was also the long time president of the Parham Happy Travelers, and in recent years she organised many large events, including zone rallies for seniors and anniversary celebrations/reunions for the Frontenac News and, most recently, Northern Frontenac Community Services. Moe was also the first female councillor to be elected in the former Township of Hinchinbrooke .


Moe was raised in Kingston , but moved to the Parham area with her husband John Bush, a Parham native. The Bushes lived in Parham for over 40 years, where they raised their son Wayne.

Moe was an avid volunteer and a loyal friend to many. She died early on Tuesday morning at Kingston General Hospital after a short illness. She was 68 years old.

A memorial service will be held at Goodfellow’s Funeral Home on Saturday March 25 at 3 pm.
