Ralph J. Edwards, funeral director, this afternoon received a telegram announcing the death of Mrs. Sarah [Lacy] Bishop, which occurred this noon at the home of her son, Mr. William Bishop, at Evanston, Illinois. Mrs. Bishop, was the widow of the late Cyrenius Bishop, who was one of the leading citizens of this place. Very recently Mrs. Bishop celebrated her eighty-second birthday. She was a prominent member of the First Baptist church of this city. Mr. William Bishop was her only child. Her step-children were Mrs. Joseph [Susannah] Pearson, of South Harrison street; Mr. Henderson Bishop, of Indianapolis; Mr. Clarence Bishop, of Sandusky, Ohio; Mrs. Harold K. [Emma] Morris, of this city.
The remains will reach Shelbyville Wednesday evening on the Knickerbocker and will be taken to the home of Mrs. Pearson. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at two o'clock, the Rev. Spear of the First Baptist church, officiating. Interment will be in Forest Hill cemetery.
Mrs. Bishop for years was active in literary club life and was a woman of unusual refinement. It had been some time since she made her home here.
