Mona was very fortunate to have touched the lives of so many young children while caring for them in her home, her greatest blessings were her four children, she was very proud to have raised them on her own. But of all, her heart was fullest spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Sunday suppers were her favourite part of the week along with Friday night jam sessions.
Besides her parents, Mona was predeceased by her husband Bill Bishop; brothers, Reg and David; sister-in-law Judy; brother-in-law George and her very special cat Bootsy.
The family would like to express a sincere, heartfelt thank you to the staff at the Fawcett’s Rest Home, Jordan LifeCare Centre and Dr. Morton for their compassion shown toward Mona and the family. A very special thank you to Jean and Henry for always making sure Mom got to her Jam Sessions when she was able, Tom and Alta Burgess for always making sure Mom was able to get to her bus tours and to Bev Boudreau at the Jordan LifeCare Centre for always going that extra mile. We are forever grateful. ❤
