Obituary of Bertha Bishop

Bertha C. Bishop, also known as Bella, passed away peacefully on June 24, 2018 at her home in Petaluma surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Manitoba, Canada to Abraham and Sarah Smith and raised in Winnipeg, Canada. In her later years, she came to San Francisco, married Harold (Jack) Bishop, a cute sailor, who preceded her in death. They lived and raised their family in Daly City until 2005 when they moved to Sonoma County. Bertha was an integral part of United Commercial Travelers for many years, writing their monthly newsletter and assisting with fundraising for cancer research and people with developmental delays. She was an avid reader, loved playing pinochle and poker, and enjoyed spending quality time with her family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Bertha is survived by her children, Janet Bouchard (Ken) and Keith Bishop; grandchildren, Lee Cooper (Jolene), Lacey Stewart (Ian), Tyler Cooper, Adam Bishop (Chelsea), and Sarah Contreras (Joey); step grandchildren, Beau Bouchard (Kelly) and Joseph Bouchard; great grandchildren, Chase, Cole, and Clayton Cooper, Hannah Bishop, and Isla Contreras; and many other family and friends. She will be deeply missed by all whose lives she had touched. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Heartland Hospice in Santa Rosa or The American Cancer Society.
