Alicia was AMAZING! She made the world sing and dance! When she was around there was sure to be a party and laughter. As an RN she traveled to Ghana to work on their patients who often didn’t have access to medical care. Their team would treat over 100 patients in 5 days. Her skill was so amazing she was chosen to teach in Ghana and Uganda.
She traveled! Frequently and often alone! She was an adventurer. She’d been to Mexico many times, Canada, Iceland, Bolovia, England multiple times, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic for 2 months living with total strangers while she worked in a doctors office ... for free! She’d been to Ireland, Costa Rico, and Ghana many times.
She was a travel nurse where she journeyed to Washington DC, San Francisco and ultimately to Denver where her boyfriend lived and she began school to obtain her Nurse Practitioners degree.
Among her survivors are her parents, Tracy and Tanya Bishop of Union; beloved partner, Alex Nowak of O'Fallon, Illinois; sister, Kaitlyn Reine Bishop of Union; Maternal grandfather, Otis Nelson of St. Clair; Paternal grandparents, Sid and Bev Bishop of Rancho Cordova, CA; Aunt, Stephanie Potter and husband Larry of Sparks, Nevada; uncle, Michael Conn of Lincoln, Nebraska; aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
