Obituary

Dorothy A. Bishop, 91, of Indianapolis, Indiana, entered the gates of Heaven on September 25, 2022.

Dorothy was born to Edward and Lanta Ford of Minerva, Ohio, one of five children. She spent her growing up years in Minerva and later attended Kent State and Aultman Hospital, where she earned her registered nurse degree. She began working as a civilian nurse in the officers’ medical ward at Wright Patterson AFB, where she met her future husband and love of her life, Richard. They were married in 1954 and later blessed with three children, Robyn, Lori, and Mark, five grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren, who she loved so much. 

Dorothy worked as an RN at Johnson Memorial, St. Francis, and Community Hospitals and for Dr. Wirey, Dr. Dohan, Dr. Komari/ICVC, and the team of cardiologists at Community South, where she retired at age 85. She spent her long career caring for all those around her. Dorothy was truly a servant of her Lord Jesus and never wavered in her faith. Her compassion was endless toward all who crossed her path. 

Dorothy is survived by her husband, Richard, daughters, grandchildren, her sister, Beverly Scott, her dear friends, Jose and Lucy, and her entire church family at The Light Church of Bargersville. She was preceded in death by her only son, Mark, one sister, and two brothers.
