Marla Jean Bishop

September 5, 1962 ~ April 4, 2021 (age 58)


Marla Jean Bishop was born on September 5th, 1962, in Henderson, Tx and passed away on April 4th, 2021, in Longview Texas.

Marla married the love of her life at the young age of 17 and celebrated 41 years of marriage on March 11th, 2021. Her greatest joy was being a mom to her three children and a NeNe to her three grandchildren. You could always find Marla in the kitchen making the best southern dishes handed down by her mother and baking sweet treats for her husband and grandchildren. Marla enjoyed life to the fullest and was the kindest person you could have the pleasure of knowing. If you knew her, you were the lucky one. She was the first person to offer help in situations of need and lived for putting a smile on everyone’s face. At the age of 50 she got her very first tattoo in honor of autism awareness for her cousins, Hunter and Chase. She fell in love with the art of memorializing her loved ones in the form of a tattoo. She felt wearing her art and memorials was far better than hanging it on the wall or placing it in a scrapbook. Marla will be cherished and missed by those she left behind.

Marla is survived by her husband of 41 years, Jon Bishop; her children, Barry Bishop and wife, Sandy Bishop, Myles Bishop and wife, Hannah Bishop, Brooke Crisler and husband, Jeff Crisler; her grandchildren, Carson, Jack, Charlee, and Owen; and numerous cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Jack Barber and mother, Dorothy Barber.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 P.M. till 7:00P.M. on Thursday, April 8th, 2021, at The Cammack Family Welch Funeral Home in Longview, Texas.
