Obituary for Delores Helen Bishop

Cumberland, MD – Delores Helen Bishop, 91, of Cumberland, MD, passed peacefully into the arms of her loving Savior, on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at Sterling Care at Frostburg Village.  

Born June 20, 1927, in Ellerslie, MD, Mrs. Bishop was the last remaining member of her immediate family. She was preceded in death by her husband, James N. Bishop; her brothers:  Herbert Witt, Charles Henry, Ronald Henry, and John Hersh, and most recently her gentleman companion, Elwood Anderson. 

Delores worked, as she would say, as a “domestic engineer”. She was a member of Central United Methodist Church and was previously an active participant at HRDC-Senior Center, Cumberland, MD. 

Delores adored her children, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her dry sense of humor will be missed, yet lives on in the lives of her children and grandchildren.  She was the heart and strength of her family.  She never met a stranger and always made others feel loved and she thoroughly enjoyed playing cards with a passion. 

Delores is survived by her children: Herbert Henry and wife, Janice, Tampa, FL; Edward Orndorff and wife Linda, Hanover, PA; Linda Custer and husband Dyer, Benton, AR; and Becky Simpson and husband Herb, Cumberland, MD; two step-children:  Beverly McGann and James I. Bishop, both of Mt. Savage, MD.  She also leaves behind nine grandchildren:  Blake Henry, Matthew Henry, Jason Murray, Michelle Young, Stephanie Gauldin, Raymond O’Neal, Selena Mawhinney, Christopher Orndorff, Andrew Simpson, and Abbey Green; as well as fourteen great-grandchildren:  Dillon Henry, Parker Gauldin, Lily Henry, Spencer Henry, Ashley Murray, Hannah O’Neal, Cooper Young, Brandon Young, Reed Henry, Blake Gauldin, Angel Mawhinney, Cleo Orndorff, Cameron Orndorff, Liam Murray, Willow Green, and Madison Green.  

Friends will be received at the Adams Family Funeral Home, P.A., 404 Decatur Street, Cumberland, MD, on Monday, February 18, 2019 from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M . 

A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at the funeral home on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Lee Brotemarkle officiating. Guests, please do not feel obligated to wear black as she loved “bright colors.” 

Interment will be in Maryland Veterans Cemetery at Rocky Gap.'

Expressions of sympathy can be made to the American Kidney Foundation, Heaver Plaza, 1301 York Road, Suite #404, Lutherville, MD 21093 or to Central United Methodist Church, 15 South George Street, Cumberland, MD  21502. 

Condolences may be sent to the family at www.AdamsFamilyfuneralhome.com 

The family would like to thank the caregivers and administrative staff at Frostburg Village for their loving care towards Mom. During her time there, she lived the fullest life in doing the things she enjoyed most; attending church, playing Bingo, making people laugh, and eating bacon.  Mom was truly blessed with special friends in the nurses, aides and physical therapists.
