NANCY ANN (COLEMAN) BISHOP
June 14,1959 ~ April 17, 2013
"When you think of Nancy, remember her smile,
her kindness, her caring, her faith,
and her love for her family."
A much loved wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend to many, Nancy Bishop, 53, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on April 17, 2013, after a very sudden severe short battle with pancreatic cancer.
She will be missed by her large family and many friends.
Nancy was born in Tacoma, WA on June 14, 1959 to Ambrose and Frances Coleman. She graduated from Franklin Pierce High School and moved to Minnesota where she worked for ten years before returning to Tacoma to care for her parents and work for Spectrum Pension Consultants.
On October 10, 1998 she married the love of her life, Richard Bishop, and moved to Vancouver, WA.
She was active at her church and she was a generous volunteer with the Journey Theater Arts Group as well as her children's classes at Minnehaha Elementary School.
Nancy lived for her family and friends.
She loved her flowers, her home, her garden, her church and her Disney cruises with Richard, Jordan, and Abigail.
Nancy was a person who had a very strong determination to achieve her goals, and she was not one to let anything get in her way when there was something she wanted to accomplish. She was supported in all of her endeavors by her strong faith.
Nancy is survived by her husband, Richard; her son, Jordan, 15; her daughter, Abigail, 10; her brothers, Ronald (Linda) Coleman, of Tacoma, WA, Richard (Teresa) Coleman of Tacoma, WA; her sisters, Carol (Donald) Jakubiec of Zimmerman, MN, Connie (Raymond) Hayes of Cinebar, WA; and her many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents.
