June 23, 1935 - November 9, 2019
Joanne Marie Bishop (84) of Fairfield, CA passed away on Saturday November 9, 2019 in Vacaville, CA. Joanne was born Joanne Marie Klemm on June 23, 1935, in Dayton, Ohio. She had 1 Sister (Norma) and 3 Brothers (Eugene, Kenny, and Dickie). A few years after graduating High School, Joanne went to work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. While at Wright-Patterson, she met the man who would eventually become her Husband, Clive (Jack) Bishop. In the early 1960’s, they were transferred to Travis AFB, and made their home in Fairfield, CA, where they raised their children, Greg, Mike, Bill, and Steve. Joanne was a very kind and compassionate woman who loved her family above all else and would do anything to help them. With her husband Jack, she enjoyed drives in the country, camping trips to the El Dorado National Forrest, and nighttime walks through the neighborhood. She also enjoyed bingo, and the occasional trip to Cache Creek. One of her favorite activities was playing pinochle with dear friends Paul and Linda Dennan. She was an avid fan of the Oakland A’s. Joanne is survived by her children Greg (Geri) of Altus OK, Bill (Meri) of Vacaville CA, and Steve (Amber) of Fairfield CA. She is also survived by Grandchildren Robert Bishop, Tyler Bishop, Chris Bishop, Brenda Bishop, Katy Staton (Scott), Jacob Davis, Anthony Davis, Jesika Glavin, and Chris Pett, as well as countless friends who regarded her as a 2nd Mom. Joanne was preceded in death by her Husband of over 50 years Clive (Jack) Bishop. Son Mike Bishop, and Grandson Jason Bishop. Joanne was also preceded in death by her Parents, Eugene and Doris Klemm, her Sister Norma, and Brothers Eugene, Kenny, and Dickie. There will be a viewing at Bryan Braker Funeral Home in Fairfield on Tuesday, Nov 26 from 4 pm to 8 pm. Funeral Service will also be at Bryan Braker on Wednesday Nov 27 at 10 AM, with a committal Service at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery to follow. Reverend Jasper Lee officiating. If Joanne were with us today, she would want to emphasize that this is not to be regarded as a sad or somber occasion, but rather a celebration of a life well lived, and the importance of family and friends.
