Margaret "Bernie" Rush passed away early 12/23/23 with her loving family by her side after a short illness. Margaret lead a full life. Born in Plainfield, N.J., she went to St. Mary's Elementary and graduated from the business program at Plainfield High School.
She worked for Hetfield & Hetfield in Plainfield for many years which gave her a drive to move her career to Wall Street where she was employed by Kidder Peabody and Co. for many years working her way up to Vice President until her retirement. She continued to pursue her passion of the NYSE for the remainder of her life.
Margaret was an AVID NY Yankees fan, especially Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Derek Jeter. She loved dancing in her youth, a good glass of wine, and her family.
She was predeceased by her parents, Martin and Helen Flatley Rush, and sisters, Rosemary Rush Wood, her husband, Jack, and Catherine "Jerry" Rush.
She is survived by her nephew, Martin Wood, who she lived with for the past 50+ years, and Gunnar, their faithful German Shepherd, John Wood (Brett) of Hillsborough, Nancy Santora (Jeff) of South Bound Brook, Rosie Burnett (Art) of Manville, Katie Klumpp (Jeff) of Watchung, Jen Wood (Suzanne) of Branchburg and many loving great nephews, nieces and their families.
