Remembering Alice Bishop
We lost long-time church pillar Alice Bishop on Monday morning this week. She had been suffering from dementia for the last several years. Alice and her husband Bruce, who died in 2019, joined College Heights in the 1960's and raised their three children (Bob, Janet and Gail) here. A life celebration will be held on Saturday, March 11 at 2pm.
