Debra "Bobo" Bishop
June 8, 1957 – November 5, 2020
Debra “Bobo” Bishop, 63, entered into Glory with her Heavenly Father on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at the Magnolia Regional Health Center in Corinth, MS. She was born June 8, 1957 to Raymond and Bobbye Jean Dodds. Bobo enjoyed fishing with her family, spending time with her family, but more importantly spoiling her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed watching Wizard of Oz. She was a member of the Booneville High School Class of 1975. She retired from Walmart after 20 plus years working in various departments. Her faith meant everything to her. One would find her reading her Bible every day. Bobo was a lifelong member of Liberty United Methodist Church in Booneville, MS. She was a part of the Crow’s Neck Emmaus Community Walk 80. Her and her husband, Marty, were sometimes accused of being Methocostal’s.
A Memorial Service will be Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 2:00 P.M. at Liberty United Methodist Church with Bro. David English and Bro. Stanley Shook officiating. The funeral services are under the direction of McMillan Funeral Home.
She is survived by her husband, Marty Bishop; two daughters, Sally Bishop (Cassie), and Stacey Allen (Timothy); one sister, Becky Barnes (Jerry); one brother-in-law, John Bishop (Ruthie); two grandsons, Benji Adams (Ashley), and Jeffery Adams; one granddaughter, Anna-Lynn Bishop; five great-grandchildren, Cas, Jordahn, Avah, Audriee, Gianna; one special niece, Andi-Beth England (Clay); and a host of other nieces and nephews.

Deb was a good friend to me for many years. We met working at Booneville Walmart. She will be missed by many. Love you my beautiful friend, Heavens Gain ❤️

What a special friend Deb was to me! She was full of laughter and kindness. I always looked for her to help me find whatever I was searching for at Walmart. Yep, she always went out of her way to help others. I know her family will miss her desperately. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers here at the Hester Home.
Love and prayers,
Tommy and Barbara Hester

I met my sister in law Deb twice. We were able to spend a weekend with them a few weeks for 4th of July, which we spent fishing and dinner and then again for 4th of July weekend and my birthday where we spent the whole time fishing. She was so excited for John and I to get married and it felt like I'd known her for years. We always talked on FB, she always told us/me "I love you" before I even joined the family but it never once felt awkward to say it back so soon. She was super sweet, but extra sassy, just like me. I felt bad fishing one night because of my Lupus and she was the first to come and check on me and pray for me. She always came straight to me with arms wide open for a big hug, even the first time she met me, same as Marty (big ole teddy bear) as well as my new niece Stacey and nephew Timothy. She will be GREATLY missed and I hope she gets to meet my Daddy in Heaven and get to learn more about the woman that her brother in law married. I will forever be grateful for those 2 weekends because the first 5 minutes of me meeting her was all it took for me to love her like my own family. Her laughter was contagious and her fishing skills were on point! Deb, until we meet again. I promise to always be here for those down here who are waiting with me to see you again. ❤
