Kathy Bishop

Iowa City

Kathy Ann Bishop, 58, passed away June 22, 2018, in Reno, Nev.
Kathy was born Aug. 16, 1959, in Texarkana, Texas, to Helen (Faulkner) and Don Marburger. She grew up in Herlong, Calif., and moved to Iowa with her family in 1974, where she graduated from East Central High School in Miles.
Kathy spent her best years with loving friends and family in Iowa City, where she enjoyed working in the travel business, always looking for the next best vacation destination. Her love for travel and Iowa football was fulfilled while planning group trips to Hawkeye bowl games. Kathy loved animals, especially her dogs. She loved singing out loud to any Lionel Richie song and always cheered for the underdog.
Kathy was preceded in death by parents, Helen and Don Marburger.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Ashley and Rick Rauth; grandchildren, Bennett and Ford Rauth, all of Los Angeles; brothers, Mike (Alison) and David (Peggy) Ross of Reno; and numerous cousins and friends throughout Iowa.
There will be a private family service in Miles, Iowa, where Kathy will be buried next to her parents. The family asks that you be kind throughout your days and always lead with love.
