“Granny” Katie Bishop
The family of “Granny” Katie Bishop regretfully announce her peaceful passing August 11, 2012 at her home. Granny began her life December 20, 1924 in Wytheville, Virginia, but made her adult home in Kansas where she worked as an accountant and proudly raised 6 boys as well as a granddaughter. Her kind heart and love of life made her a mother and grandmother to many as well as a caring friend to all who were blessed enough to have known her. Granny’s love showed no prejudice and she leaves behind a loving group of both blood and acquired family who miss her dearly.
Per her request, a celebration of her life will be held September 29 at her home in Shawnee, Kansas. Granny was a proud breast cancer survivor, so the family asks in lieu of flowers that donations be made in her honor to the KC Chapter of The Susan G Komen Foundation.
