There were horses waiting in heaven for Karrie Ann (Parsons) Bischoff, 49, of Cozad, Nebraska who passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at Select Specialty Hospital in Omaha while watching the Huskers with her husband Chad.
She was born on March 1, 1973 in Kearney, Nebraska to Gene and Shirley (Brooks) Parsons. Karrie received her education from Cozad Public Schools and graduated from Cozad High School with the class of 1991. Following high school, Karrie graduated from LCCC in Cheyenne, Wyoming with an Associate Degree in Equine Management and went on to become a licensed Equine Appraiser. Karrie was currently employed at the Cozad Housing Authority as an Occupancy Specialist.
Karrie grew up loving animals. She was a very active 4H leader who loved her 4H kids, parents and horses. She actively supported the Eustis FFA program and was very proud that both of her sons participated in it.
Karrie will be missed beyond belief. She was a one-of-a-kind; wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, grandchild, friend, and mentor.
When we begin to come to terms with our loss, we’ll embrace our precious memories and find peace in knowing Karrie is watching over us as long as we carry her on in our hearts.
Karrie is survived by her loving husband Chad, of Cozad, Nebraska; her sons, Jordan and his wife, Mallory, and Jayce Bischoff; three grandchildren, Sophia, William and Addison all of Cozad; her parents, Shirley and Gene Parsons of Cozad; sister, Lorie (Julian) Stewart of Mukilteo, Washington; brother, Kelly Parsons of Denver, Colorado; sister/best friend, Carmen Breedlove of Curtis; grandmother, Helen Brooks of Cozad and father-in-law, John Bischoff of Lexington.
She was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Rosie Bischoff; grandparents, Leonard Brooks, Freda and Herbert Parsons and special aunt, Dorothy Lanham.
