Lillian Mary Bishop

North Sydney

It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend, Lillian Bishop, age 84, on Sunday, February 18, 2018, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in North Sydney on December 10, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Patrick and Julia (Richard) Pardy.

Lillian was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother to her family. Lillian had many years filled with sickness which forced her to stay home, but in spite of this she never complained and enjoyed life everyday to the best of her abilities. She loved company and looked forward to her many visits from VON and Northside Visiting Homemakers, whom she considered as friends.

Lillian is survived by five sons, Albert Bishop, Ken (Mary) Bishop, Wayne Bishop, all of North Sydney, Nick Bishop, Sydney Mines, Blair Bishop (Valerie Hodder), Kempt Head; by her daughter Marilyn Bishop (Frank Musgrave), Shenacadie; seven grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren; her brother Ernie (Christine) Pardy, Ontario, two sisters, Josie (Ken) Jardine, Sydney Mines, Mona Linder, Ontario, and by her daughter-in-law, Connie Bishop.

She was predeceased by her husband Albert Bishop, two sons Donald and Joe, a grandson Jason, four brothers, Joe, Tom, Patrick, James and sisters, Theresa, Rhoda, Barbara and Ellen.

There will be no visitation by request. A funeral service will be held Friday 3:00 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, North Sydney, with Rev. Julio Martin officiating. Burial will take place in Lakeside Cemetery at a later date.

Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, VON, Northside Homemakers or the NS Heart and Stroke Foundation.
