Mildred Bishop, age 74, of Dunlap, TN, passed away April 28, 2021 at Parkridge Medical Center. She was of the Church of God Faith. She was a loving, faithful wife, mom, and grandma. Mildred loved the Lord and loved to talk to others about him. She was a perfect example of what a wife and mom should be, loving, patient, a best friend, and taught us to always turn to God and keep our faith and trust in him.
