I remember both Doris & Bob. My Father Tony Carnevale was close friends with Bob. We stayed for a week at their A Frame Camp at Bow Lake. I caught my first fish there, a special place,& special memories from The Bishop Family. My Sympathy to you Bonnie, and all of her Kinfolk.

So sad to hear about Doris.  You couldn't have said it better that family was the center of her life.  You could always count on a family party for one reason or another at the Bishop house.  Had a lot of laughs with Doris. She will be missed from Bow Lake to Pleasant Lake!

Dear Martha and Frank,

So sorry to learn of you Mom's passing.  She was a very special and kind lady who I'm sure will be missed.  May your feelings of loss eventually be replaced with the many wonderful, fond memories you are so lucky to have.  I, myself, have many I keep in my heart.

With Love,

Art and family,

So sorry to hear that you lost your Mom. She was a very special person. I'll always remember her smile and warm heart. I especially have good memories of her being so happy to be at the lake. Please extend my deepest condolence to your family.

To the Bishop family: So sorry for your loss. Your Mom was such a great Teacher, I was lucky enough to have her all 4 years at West High School. She taught me so much, how to cook, sew, manage the Bills, but mostly... How to be a Lady & the right & wrongs of being a teenager. Your Mom knew I came from a poor Family (Father died when I was very young, & my Mom had to raise 4 kids on her own)your Mom was kind enough to fine me a job cleaning Homes for the Elderly people she knew. I can't say enough about how GREAT your Mom was to me. Such a loss of a Special Lady. Prayers are being said for your Family. I feel like I just lost my Best Friend. Mrs. Bishop you will be surely missed by all. Thank you for all you did for me.
Your Student, Carol Dionne-Poulin
