My children and I are saddened by this great loss. Bernie had a passion for whatever she felt was good and right. The world is a better place because John and Bernie lived here.

We were so sorry to learn of Bernice's death. She was a great friend as well as her husband John who I met while I was in the Air Force stationed at Peterson Field Colorado Springs. They were there for our baptism.They helped us so many times. She will be missed by all who knew her
