Shirley A. (Colt) Bishop
May 27, 1934-November 14, 2022
Shirley was born in Burlington, VT and died from a broken heart, at her home of over 60 years in East Hartford, CT. She was a woman of very strong faith and looked forward to reuniting with her recently departed daughter Diane, beloved sister Barb, and her parents in Heaven.
Shirley loved all animals, but especially cats. She fed every neighborhood critter, much to her neighbor’s displeasure.
Shirley enjoyed clipping coupons and giving to pretty much every charity that sent her mail. She was generous in spirit to everyone she met. She often left envelopes of coupons for diapers and formula in the baby aisle of the grocery store for parents to find.
Shirley will be missed by her entire family, her brother Carlisle, her son Mike and her daughter-in-law Jenny, sons Steve and Rick, as well as by her granddaughters Shannon and Amy, grandsons Gary and his wife Kristen, Jason, Eric, Brian and Joey, and her many great-grandchildren.
Per Shirley’s wishes, there will be no funeral services or wake. Her ashes will join her daughter’s and sister’s to float upon the winds of the Green Mountains in Vermont.
