Bernice was a hard-working woman that loved her family. She taught them not only the importance of family but also hard work. Bernice was a strong woman who overcame many obstacles. She loved going to church, and took great pleasure in taking care of home. She will be remembered not just for her strength but her incredible fashion sense.


 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

2 Timothy 2:7-8
