Betty Louise Tatum
Betty Louise Tatum, age 91 and a resident of Bishop her whole life, passed away on March 29, 2014 at the Bishop Care Center.
Betty was a true Bishop native and always joked that she was born on Grove Street and would die on Elm Street. Her biggest joy in life was raising her three sons and later in life enjoyed following the accomplishments of her eight grandchildren, especially at their sporting events.
Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Don Tatum.
Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Von and Jayne Tatum; son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Donna Tatum and son, Lee Tatum, all of Bishop; grandchildren, Laura Nelson, Tim Tatum, Jeff Tatum, Kelsie Tatum, Keith Tatum, Michael Tatum, Amanda Tatum and Sara Tatum; and great-grandchildren, Zane and Weston Nelson and Hana and Jack Tatum.
A memorial service for Betty will be held this Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Grace Lutheran Church, 711 N. Fowler in Bishop, with Pastor Kenton Puls officiating.
