I remember Bernice so well as a friend of my mom, and as my Sunday School teacher at Bethel United Church. She was kind and fun and had a great laugh. Please accept my sympathies.

Our sympathy to you Ron and your family. Your mother was a bright and cheerful lady. I was sorry I didn't know about her passing when I saw you in town recently. Dianne and Jerry Siderius

I am the guy who mowed the lawn and kept up Bernice's flower beds in front of her apartment for the past number of years - that's how I got to know Bernice. Even when I wasn't working, I would pop in to say hi. We would have good conversations about books we've read, politics, life, family and whatever else popped in our heads. What a wise, caring, intelligent woman! Keeping up the grounds on Alder St. is never going to be the same.

To Bernice's Family,
On behalf of the Dunnville District Heritage Assn., please accept our condolences on Bernice's passing. She was active in the formation of the Assn. nearly 30 years ago and remained a dedicated volunteer for many years afterwards. When she could no longer contribute in that capacity, she continued her membership and donated materials for our archives. She was a lovely woman, and a treasured friend to the Assn. She will be sadly missed.
