honor of Ruth Chauncey Bishop - 16 April 1945 to 28 May 2015 Her Biographical Sketch updated 2007:
C. Bishop is an avid genealogist, as well as a friend to the community. She
graduated from Pacific University with a B.A. in sociology, and has advanced
degrees in computer programming and accounting. While in school she worked for
the yearbook, and from that experience her hobby of photography escalated into
wedding photographer and other activities. She was very active until 1974, when
serious back surgery and the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis slowed her only
slightly. Ruth has a great sense of humor and is fun to be with. Her upbeat
attitude is an inspiration to all who know her. She has even ridden on
elephants and in hot-air balloons!
It has been a month since I last wrote a new post and finally the time has come to share in celebrating family and all that it means to me. But first, I must share that an article of mine has been published in the APGQ (Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly) in the March 2015 issue. It took two years of waiting for just the right moment to send it to Christy Fillerup, who assumed the role of editor of the APGQ sometime last year. She was also in charge of SLIG (Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy) as director for several years. After returning home from SLIG in January and waiting to give her some time to get back on track, the article was sent and I waited to hear from her.
