Much of her life was spent serving children in the arena of elementary teacher, girl scout leader, and dance teacher. After retiring from Advanstar she went to Little Treasures to “rock” babies. Bernice and Don were a team of caring individuals. Their house was a safe place to go for support and a plate of food. Bernice enjoyed reading, playing bridge, knitting, and watching skating and gymnastics competitions. She shared her love of music and dance with her children and grandkids and never missed one of their sporting events, concerts, or recitals.
