January 28, 1963 – February 18, 2023
Stacie Bendall Bishop, 60, of Dinwiddie, VA passed away peacefully on February 18, 2023. Born January 28, 1963 in Sussex, VA, she was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred Carl Bendall and Darlene EcKenroth Bendall. She is survived by her loving husband, Robert (Ricky) Ray Bishop of 36 years; her children, Brian Lee Bishop (Heather), Evan Ray Bishop (Hannah), and Chelsie Bishop Jenkins (Harrison); and her beloved grandchildren, Brady, Waylon, and Adaline Bishop. She is also survived by her sister, Virginia Manley (James), and numerous nieces and nephews.
After graduating from Shenandoah Valley Academy in New Market Virginia in 1981, Stacie entered the field of dentistry and went on to work for Richard W. Bates DDS for nearly 33 years. She had a great love for cooking for any occasion and tending to her flower garden alongside her husband. Stacie loved to decorate for every holiday and host extravagant celebrations like her annual Halloween party and Christmas Eve celebrations. Of all of these passions, she most loved her grandchildren and spoiling them any chance she could.
Stacie could light up a room with her smile and was known for her caring and generous heart. She spent any chance she could with her family and will be greatly missed. The family appreciates the support received from family and friends over the past month and the doctors and nurses at Johnston Willis Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to breast and ovarian cancer research. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
