Age 63, of Moon Township, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 13, 2013, from her earthly home surrounded by her wonderful, loving, and supportive family, after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. She was born in Scranton on April 18, 1950 to the late Carl and Helen (Gardner) Renner, Jr. She is survived by her beloved husband and best friend, Donald F. Bishop of almost 43 years. She is also survived by her loving daughter, Aimee R. Bishop of Moon Township. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Nancy J. Leach, who passed away in 1994 at age 59.

III, Nancy Ann and Joan Marie Leach; also cherished sister-in-law of Lois and David Lloyd; and nieces and nephews, Dawn, Jessica of Scranton, and David and Jackie, Caitlyn and Cameron Lloyd of Chesapeake, VA; along with many good friends. Barbara graduated from Scranton Central High School in 1968 and was a member of the National Honor Society.
