Betty Jane (Tuttle) Bishop

Betty passed away on Monday, December 4, 2023 at Close to Home Assisted Living of Covid 19 at the age of 101. Betty was born February 19, 1922 in Bay City, Michigan. On May 2, 1946, she married the love of her life, the late Earl Ray Bishop. She was a member of Grace Methodist Church, East Campus, she loved early mornings and got up before the sunrise to read her Bible. Her strong faith in God sustained her through many heartbreaks and losses of beloved family members. She enjoyed visiting with people, singing, playing the piano, cooking, baking and working in her yard and garden. Most of all Betty loved spending time with her family; we were so blessed to have her all of these years. She was a loving and cheerful person with a happy smile.
