Dawn Mandi Bishop, 41

Dawn Mandi Bishop, 41, North Manchester, passed away on March 29, 2022, at Lutheran Hospital of Indiana in Fort Wayne.

The daughter of Diane (Deneve) and Arnold Bishop, Dawn was born Oct. 3, 1980, in Wabash.

Dawn graduated from Manchester High School in 1999 and went on to work hard and provide the very best she could for her two sons, Dominic and Kyler. She helped her mom at 4-Paw Grooming and worked at the local post office for over a year before she began battling cancer. Dawn was strong in her faith and a devout believer in God. Early in life, Dawn attended Congregational Christian Church in North Manchester.

She was loving and caring and always willing to help those in need even while she was sick. Dawn was well known and incredibly easy to get along with. She was also a big fan of going to the casino and playing Bingo. She often tried her luck with lottery tickets and spent so much of her life enjoying time with her close-knit family and friends. Dawn Bishop was a fighter as she navigated her battle with cancer.
