    My life is richer for having known her. What a spirit! If she hadn’t been a wife, mother, business owner, and tireless volunteer, she could have been a rock star. Blessings on all her family.

    Ann was a great friend and mentor who made quite an impact on my life. She was kind and feisty and loved her cats! I feel blessed to have known her. May she rest in peace.

    Ann Bishop will forever be remembered at the Blakeford. She shared her talents and gifts in so many ways: she served as president of the resident council for two different terms; late she served as secretary then vice president; she edited the in-house news letter the BANNER; she brought music to vesper services; she presented timely movies for residents 3 evenings each week; she called Bingo each Friday evening; she founded the “In My Humble Opinion” program for residents to air thoughts or complaints and generally kept administration informed of resident concerns. What will we do without her!!
