On April 18, 2021, Kerri Alane Bishop, aged 57, passed away in Manchaca, TX.
Kerri was born in Houston, TX on February 18, 1964, the second of five daughters to Billy Ray and Norma Jean (Phillips) Bishop. For the last 20 years, her primary residence was at the family home in Cedar Creek, TX, where she was cared for by her sister (Joy) and brother-in-law (Levi).
Kerri brought vibrant energy with bursts of love, kindness, and laughter wherever she went, instantly befriending everyone she met.

Often inspired by friends and loved ones, she’d aim to brighten their day with her work of art to show them they were loved and see them smile. It has been a blessing and comfort for her family and friends knowing the Lord took her home swiftly, yet her presence will forever be felt in those that loved her and will live on in the beat of their hearts.
