Resident of Livermore
Carol Yvonne Bishop was born on April 30, 1943, in Long Beach, Calif., and died on June 10, 2019, at her home in Livermore, Calif., with her family at her side.
Her parents were Elvie and Henrietta Henley from Monette, Ark., both of whom preceded her in death, as did her son Donnie McCullugh (aged 2), her brothers Kenny Henley and Mark Henley, and her sister Charlotte Harper.
Yvonne is survived by her husband, Alan N. Bishop, her daughter Tracy McCullugh, her stepdaughters Melinda Roeben (husband Walter) and Jennifer Krause (husband Gregory), and let’s not forget her Chihuahua Daisy who was her protector to the end. She is also survived by six grandchildren Dustin Spence, Tyler Spence (wife Tania), Macie Roeben, Kaylee Roeben, Hannah Krause, Natalie Krause; and two great-grandchildren Tyler Spence and Jon Spence. Her surviving siblings include: sisters Gloria Wood (husband Larry), Terry Moon (husband Bruce), Barbara Henley, and Kathy Jakobson (husband Gregg); and brothers Jimmy and Allen (wife Trudy) Henley.
Yvonne’s career included working for a carpet company in Southern California, and as a secretary in the regional Safeway Produce Buying Department in Walnut Creek, Calif. She ended her career as a Real Estate Broker working for her and her husband’s company, Century 21 Mission Bishop in Fremont, Calif., where she led the Nationwide Relocation Department.
Yvonne will be missed. She was a classy lady, loved people, and loved to host many backyard BBQs. She was a devoted Christian who had an unfailing faith in her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She did not fear death and was ready for the next chapter in her eternal life.
