Bernice was a loving mother and devoted wife. Her numerous interests and talents were enjoyed and treasured by many. She loved to crochet, sew and garden and was a master of all. Music was a big part of her life. Whether singing in the St. Catherine’s Choir, playing piano or listening and dancing to her favorite oldies. Her multitude of paintings and sketches reflect her love of the outdoors but her yard was her living masterpiece. She loved to travel and enjoyed numerous trips to the mountains.
