I'd known Bernie since my birth in 1950 as she and my Mother, Theresa Dunne Craddock, were close friends since the 1930's when they were roommates in N.Y.C. Bernie visited us often in Ct. or we connected with her in N.Y.C. and as a teen I visited Bernie in her Ames home (it's still my favorite house in the world). I always remember Bernie as being lively, engaged, and interested in everyone around her including me when I was a teen or my 9 mo. old son when we met for a quick breakfast at a Ct. airport back in the mid-1970s. And back in the mid 1980's she even invited me to join her & some of her and my Mother's oldest & dearest friends when she was visiting Seattle after I'd recently moved there. I only wish I'd realized Bernie was still alive as we'd lost touch in the last ten years or so. My deepest sympathy to Bernie's family at her passing.

On behalf of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication at Iowa State University, I want to express our condolences concerning the death of Bernice Burns Donovan, who was an associate professor at Iowa State in what was then the Technical Journalism Department. She was hired in 1956 after serving as food editor for Redbook and food editor at ABC's "Magazine of the Air." She was promoted to associate professor in 1959. I met her in the jungles of Peru in 1966 at a Shipibo Indian Village near Pucalpa. She arrived in a dugout canoe while I was filming the making of local beer by village women. She liked adventure.

Bernice was a woman with a heart for the poor of this world and showed it in many ways. She will be missed.
I knew her from the years I spent on the St. Thomas staff.
I am so glad to read that she asked memorial donations for the St. Thomas Love Your Neighbor Fund which assists the local poor.
May she rest in the loving arms of the God she loved.
