Janeen Sheryl Rush

September 8, 1953 - August 12, 2016

Mother. That is the word that fits Janeen best. She was everyone’s mother—if you were privileged enough to know her, you understand. She would strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere. And she listened. Really listened. Whereas many people nod and smile politely, simply waiting for the conversation to end, Janeen truly cared. The world stopped and you became the center of it for those moments. She always put others before herself and would do anything for those she loved. Without question. Without fail.
Janeen was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. She worked for S.A.I.F. Corporation as an accounting clerk for over 30 years, retiring in 2014. The Can Can/Triangle was her home away from home. You could often find her there laughing and living life to the fullest with her huge extended family. Janeen’s favorite place in the entire world was Jamaica; hopefully, she’s on a beach somewhere right now, sipping a drink, staring out at the surf, and listening to the waves crashing on the shore.
Janeen is survived by her sons, Keith Jones, Justin Rush, and David Rush; daughter, Kelly Weiner; ex-husband, Mike Rush; sister, Jan Cannon; and grandson, Matthew Weiner. She was preceded by her mother, Muriel Bennett; father, Paul Bennett; and sister, Joanne Bennett.
Her celebration of life will be held at Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service on Saturday, August 27th at 2:00 pm.

She was more than my sister she was my friend!  We went through the loss of our oldest sister Joanne in 2014 and our mother in 2015.  I really miss her, she was there beside me for those two losses but God took her home and I know she lived her life her way and I am honored to have been her 'little" sister and even more proud to have been her friend. I will miss her until the Lord reunites our family and we can all be together once more.

I love you Jeanie and will carry our memories in my heart, your "little" sister, Janette Paula Bennett Cannon.

Janeen was the sweetest and most caring person...she had the biggest heart and gave the best hugs. We will miss you Janeen. love Sara
