  1. Saint Bernice!
    Always kind with a smile on her face. Our farms were right across from each other. She taught us gardening at her Garden Club. Had our family over for numerous Sunday dinners. One of the best memories is the bucket of cookies at the mailbox around Christmas Time. Wonderful farm memories!
    Bernice was & is a Saint in my mind.

  2. I have many fond memories of Bernice, my first cousin. We went to Fairville Grade School together and lived on adjoining farmsteads. She was always cheerful to be with. A favorite expression of hers was, “The Good Lord”

  3. I am sitting here thinking of Bernice and missing our beautiful times of worship together. She was a loving woman and her genuine longing to be with the Lord will always stay with me. She found such hope in Him! Paula
