PETERBOROUGH – Beverly "Bev" Bishop, 92, of Peterborough, died at her home Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014.
Born in Greenfield on Sept. 4, 1921, she was the daughter of Hazel (Lowe) Blanchard and Perley Blanchard.
Bev grew up in Greenfield and attended high school in Peterborough. While attending high school, she met her husband Lawrence Bishop. They married in 1940 and moved to Peterborough, where she would spend the next 74 years.
She worked for a time at Verney Mill and New Hampshire Ball Bearing, but spent most of her career managing the books and operations at Nonie's Bakery.
Bev was a devoted wife to her husband "Larry". As such, she assisted in his many activities including the Micros Little League, the Peterborough Fire Department, and running the bakery. In her earlier years she enjoyed snowmobiling and crocheting. She was an avid Red Sox fan and wouldn't miss a game.
She is survived by her daughter, Sally Page, of Concord; her son, David Bishop, of Peterborough; three grandchildren of whom she was especially close to, Julie Allaet of Washington and John Woods of Belmont; eight great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. She will also be dearly missed by many people who cared for her during the last several years.
A graveside service will be held in the spring at Pine Hill Cemetery, Sand Hill Road, Peterborough.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Peterborough Fire Rescue Association, 16 Summer St., Peterborough, NH 03458.
