Alma Bishop, 70 of Normangee went to be with the Lord, Friday, June 20. Visitation will be held Monday, June 23, from 6 to 8 pm at Cozart Funeral Home.

Alma E. McCormick was born in Flynn, TX June 17, 1944. She was married to Darrell Wayne Bishop Sr., and raised nine children. Alma was a lifetime member of the First Baptist Church Flynn and was also a member of the congregation at the Gospel Truth Church in Normangee.

The Geelan Community House became an important part of her life. She was always there helping and making puzzles with everyone. Being a mother of that many children it’s a good thing she loved to cook. She would grow her own garden and give away all the extras to friends and family. Alma was a caring person who never met an enemy; she would hug you and let you know how important you were to her. You will be missed by all who knew you.

Alma was preceded in death by her parents Wilbur C. Watson and Ollie (McCormick) Watson; her husband, Darrell Wayne Bishop Sr.; a son Donald Ray Bishop; and a daughter Sara Frances Bishop.

She is survived by her daughter, Rebecca Bishop; her sons, Darrell Wayne Bishop Jr. and wife Sylvia, William Charles Bishop, Carl Alan Bishop and wife Rena, John Thomas Bishop, Herman Earl Bishop, and Kevin Eugene Bishop; an adopted son William Bilodeau; five grandchildren Angela Ansley, Nicolas Bishop, Ricky Bishop, Destiney Bishop, and Caroline Bishop; a great grandchild Andrea Ansley; and very important friends Randy Moss, Gary Dawkins, Deborah Bass “Mama Deb” and family, Vivan Gray, Don Groves, and Sherry Wilson “Tootsie”.

In lieu of flowers you can make donations in her memory to the Geelan Community House, PO Box 424, Normangee, TX 77871.

  1. Sorry to hear of Mom’s passing. She was one of the kindest people I’ve known. Had I been aware I would have been at the services. My condolences to the family.
