A 1969 graduate of Ockawamick Central School, she was a lifelong resident of Columbia County.

Rarely in her room, she “went visiting” and acquired many friends among the residents and their visitors—some very special.

Ms. Bishop is survived by: her sister, Karen and her husband Ron Markisenis; several aunts and cousins. Her aunt, Elizabeth Lynk and cousins, Mary Jones and Thomas Meltz not only helped her transition from independent living to the nursing home, their continued presence and support throughout the years is greatly appreciated.

The family is grateful for the care and kindness that the nursing home staff afforded Ms. Bishop over the years.
