Caitlin Marie (Prince) Bisbee
May 22, 1987 – July 7, 2020
Family and Friends, Caitlin Marie Bisbee (Prince) passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday July 7th 2020 at the age of 33. She is sorely missed, and the impact she had on her friends and family is far beyond the skills of this writer to convey. Caitlin was a wonderful friend, cousin, aunt, niece, grandchild, daughter, wife and mother. Some women become mothers, and some were born to be mothers. Caitlin was the latter. She experienced many joyous moments during her life, but none compared to the day that she was finally able to hold her beloved daughter Nola in January 2020. Following this was the day she learned that she was expecting a second daughter, Isley, who would have been born on December 26th 2020. Mother and Daughter are now with their Savior in Heaven.
Caitlin is survived by her first daughter Nola, husband Daniel, mother Vickie and step-father Mark, father Galon and step-mother Kelly, siblings Christine, Sarah, Sean, Jack, Galon, Brandon and Larissa as well as Uncles Cliff, Michael and Mark. Caitlin is also missed by several cousins whom she considered as close as siblings and loved dearly. Caitlin’s nieces and nephews were extremely important to her as well, and she loved them as if they were her own children.
In life, Caitlin found joy in playing card and dice games with anyone foolish enough to challenge her. She was also a very accomplished baker and an excellent cook. Her skills with a KitchenAid mixer were legendary and appreciated by anyone who had the pleasure of tasting her baked goods. As a mother, Caitlin was gentle, nurturing, joyful and dedicated. Her greatest triumph in life was laboring for 36 long hours to bring the daughter she had waited eight long years to hold into the world. As a wife, Caitlin was dedicated, passionate, playful, driven, patient and loving beyond her husband’s wildest dreams. She was his best friend, his companion, and the absolute love of his life. She gave him more than he could have ever dreamed of, and has left him with a beautiful daughter who will grow up knowing exactly who her mother was from the stories that she will be told by her family and friends.
As a daughter, sister, niece, cousin, aunt, and grandchild, Caitlin was devoted, steadfast, loving, and always made time to lend an ear or a shoulder to cry on. The emphasis that Caitlin placed on family was apparent to anyone who knew her. She loved planning parties, get-togethers and vacations because she knew that meant that she would be able to spend time with family. Caitlin’s family will remember her as a competitive, loving, honest, real, and passionate goofball who loved teasing and making others laugh. Her smile lit up the room and her laugh could be heard from anywhere.
Life is often full of twists and turns and unexpected surprises. One of these was when Caitlin and Daniel moved to Richmond Virginia in 2016 to continue their careers with Capital One. This afforded them the ability to see a side of the country that they never would have been able to had the opportunity to transfer with Capital One not presented itself. While in Virginia, Caitlin made dozens and dozens of friends through Capital One and graced hundreds of people with her presence and contagious laugh. While Caitlin and Daniel recognized that it is very rare to find a perfect job, they knew that they were absolutely blessed to work for a company that placed such a large emphasis on a good work-life balance. Caitlin possessed a keen ability for being able to take on any task head-on and not just accomplish it, but to surpass all expectations. Caitlin was a dedicated worker and spent the last eight years in the financial industry, with her most recent role being an Anti-Money Laundering Fraud Investigator with Capital One in Richmond Virginia. As hard as it was to be away from family, Caitlin truly cherished her time in Virginia and the memories that she made were some of her fondest.
Caitlin always saw the bright side of things, and when a work-from-home order was released by Capital One due to the Coronavirus, Caitlin, Nola and Dan packed their bags in March 2020 and headed home to Oregon to be around family and friends. The four months that she spent in Oregon were filled with joy and excitement. In May Caitlin and Dan got the joyous news that they were expecting a second child in December 2020! This news filled their hearts with joy and Caitlin immediately began planning a combined gender reveal with her cousin Coren who is also expecting! The party went off without a hitch at the end of June and Caitlin was overjoyed to learn that she would be having a second daughter, Isley Monroe. She was so happy that her daughters would grow up and be so close in age. The following weekend was the 4th of July and in typical Caitlin fashion, she had a trip planned out perfectly! She was able to spend her last holiday with family and friends and had an amazing night of the 4th watching fireworks all along the Washington state coast line at Longbeach. She had an absolute blast.
Caitlin was called home on the morning of July 7th to join her Grandfather Chuck and Grandmother Shirley (Nanny). While we are deeply saddened and heartbroken, we also find hope and comfort knowing that Caitlin and Isley are in Heaven due to Caitlin’s faith and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. To say that Caitlin and Isley will be missed is an understatement. Both lives were lost too young, but their memories will continue on and we can have peace that we will see them again in Heaven one day.
MATTHEW 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
PSALM 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
PSALM 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

The simonsen family-Cindy, Lyle, Lindsay and Jesse would like to say how very sorry we are for your profound loss. Her obituary write up is beautiful. The words about her loving her daughter and nieces and nephews all to pieces remind me again of what I’ve always remembered about her. When ever we would come to your house to get Sarah and Lindsay together to play Caitlin was always so smiling and happy and chatting and interacting and having fun with Jesse, the little brother, It always put a smile on his face and mine, even though he was a little bit shy at the time. Sometimes she would even ask if Jesse could stay and play. I always thought how nice and cute that was. So truly sorry for the loss of your wonderful Caitlin.

Caitlin and I worked together at Capital One. We grew close when we both were expecting our first child at the same time. I remember being so excited with her to find out that we were both having girls. We would talk about possible names and cute clothes/bows to put them in. She would always check on me everyday that I saw her and ask how I was feeling and if I was doing okay. I remember telling her about being worried with something the doctor told me, and she reassured me not to worry. She said "Everything will be will okay, just try not to think about it and enjoy your pregnancy." We had plans to have play dates when she came back to Virginia. She even said that it would probably be Nola's first play date! She was always so caring and a joy to be around at work. I will truly miss her.
