With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Kim, a loving mother, sister, and friend to all whose lives she touched, on June 30, 2019.

Kim Suzanne McKay Bishop, 61, was born on June 11, 1958 in Casa Grande, Arizona. She was raised in the town of Picacho, Arizona, where she enjoyed riding horses and helping out at the family restaurant. She graduated from Santa Cruz Valley Union High School in 1976.

During her life, she owned and operated a clothing consignment shop in Casa Grande, worked in the restaurant business, and was a licensed massage therapist. She is known to have regularly said to her daughter, “Why are you tired? At your age, I was working three jobs!”

Kim, a master at finding a good deal, enjoyed going to yard sales and thrift stores to “pop some tags.” She also loved to cook and would offer any visitors a taste of her world famous crock-pot beans.

Kim was a devoted and thoughtful mother of three who made sure that her children received every educational opportunity. She was supportive of her kids’ endeavors and never missed a marching band, theater, or singing performance.

She will be sorely missed and survived by her children Kiley Bishop, Bryce Bishop, and Blayze Bishop, as well as her three sisters Karen McKay, Brenda McKay McKee, and Cheryl McKay Coxon. She was preceded in death by her mother Colleen Tidwell McKay and father Bill Cash McKay.

A celebration of Kim’s life will be held at Bunker’s Garden Chapel, 33 North Centennial Way, Mesa, Arizona 85201 on Saturday, July 20, 2019 beginning at 11:00am. A reception will follow at Greenfield Glen Community Center, 1021 South Greenfield Road, Mesa, Arizona 85206.
