ENID — Frances Louise (Campbell) Bishop, 91 years old, passed from this life to her eternal home with Jesus Christ on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010, in Tulsa, Okla.

Frances was born May 11, 1918, on a farm near Carrier, Okla., to Elliott A. and Mabel (Thompson) Campbell. She attended school in Spring Valley, Goltry and graduated from Enid High School in 1936, going on to Enid Business College. She then was employed by George E. Failing Co.

She met her future husband, James R. Bishop, while he was stationed at Enid Air Force Base during World War II. They were married Jan. 14, 1944, in Elizabethtown, Penn., at the Evangelical United Brethern Church.

After Jim’s discharge from the Army Air Corps, they returned to Enid to raise their two children.

Frances would list her accomplishments in life as simple but important ones. She was a wife, mother, homemaker and member and active participant in their church, First Evangelical United Brethren Church, which became Willow View United Methodist Church.

She went back to work when the children were in high school; she was employed at Craig Pest Control from 1964 to 1977 and then Lugar Oil Co. from 1978 to 1989.

Frances was preceded in death by her parents, and three siblings, Gail Reeves, Hazel Weatherby and Sam Campbell.

She is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Jim Bishop; two children, Lana L. Bebee and Ron (Tulsa) and Sam Bishop (Enid); and one sister, Pauline Brauser of Oklahoma City. She was a loving, devoted grandmother to three grandchildren, Ryan Bebee (Susannah), Ross Bebee (Elizabeth) and Robin Blose (Jonathan); three great-grandchildren, Shawn and Clara Bebee and Braxton Bebee; and several nieces and nephews.

Service will be 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010, at Willow View United Methodist Church. Rev. Lesly Broadbent will officiate. Burial will be in Memorial Park Cemetery. Arrange-ments are under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.
