Theresa A. Bishop

January 28, 1920 ~ December 2, 2019 (age 99)


Theresa Colavito Bishop, 99 of Auburn, passed away peacefully Monday December 2, 2019,  while under the care of the Huntington Living Center in Waterloo. Born January 28, 1920 Theresa was the daughter of Leonard and Philomena (Buffa) Colavito.

Theresa is survived by one sister, Angelina Colavito Conti and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Theresa is predeceased by husband Donald Bishop, brothers Pat and Sam Colavito and sisters Betty (Vince) and Mary (Hester).

Theresa was an avid baker and her cookbooks were filled with hand written recipes on scraps of paper, neatly tucked into the pages. Her legacy of baking still shines on today as her cookbooks remain in the care of her nieces. She was a stylish dresser and loved nice shoes. She wore hats and always had every hair in place. She also had an infectious laugh. She lived a full life of almost 100 years.

The family wishes to express their appreciation for the loving care Theresa received at The Huntington Living Center.

There will be no calling hours. Burial will be in St. Joseph’s Cemetery
