Karen “Gaia” Leigh Bishop
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Karen L. Bishop, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
While she only had one child and grandchild of her own blood, Karen was also a mother/grandmother/father/”Uncle Karen” to many, as well as a parade of furbabies she adopted, cared for, or otherwhile spoiled.
In her years she spent time in the USAF, as well as living, learning, and traveling in various regions of the US before and after her service while working in various industries. She also spent some time married to one of her best friends, Jack.
Karen enjoyed kicking back with a beer and watching college football, horseback and motorcycle riding in her younger years, putting together jigsaw puzzles, storm chasing, reading, listening to the radio, caring for stray cats, and spoiling any furry animal that would allow her to do so.
Memorials in her name can preferably be done as donations to non-profit feral cat charities or no-kill shelters, though her survivors note they have no objections to dedications on park benches and other outdoor areas, planting a tree in her name, donations to reliable wildlife rescues, and LGBTQ organizations of good standing. We wish any dedication or donation in her name to be something that would have meaning both to her and to your own memories of her.
She is survived by Paula “Scoshee” Sullivan, her daughter by way of F.A “Andy” Silcox, granddaughter J.S. “Storm” Sullivan, and all those she loved and who loved her and keep her in their hearts.
Originally of Florida, she died at home in Mississippi. Her ashes will continue her worldly travels. From stardust she was born and to stardust she will return.
