Bernice Langley Cook, 93, was called home by her Lord Jesus Christ on Thursday, August 17, 2017. We will celebrate her remarkable life at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 20, 2017, at Dryden Funeral Home in Heflin. There will be a visitation with the family today, August 19, 2017, from 4-6 p.m. Bernice is survived by her daughters, Jean (Frank) Bonner, Jane Johnson; her sons, Ralph (Sonja) Cook and Chris (Darlene) Cook, as well as, her "adopted" daughter, Margaret Estrada. Her grandchildren are Terry Bonner, Nicholas Bonner, Michael Johnson, Zachary Cheatwood and Christopher Cook. She had four great grandchildren, LeighAnn (Josh) Hudgins; Andrew Bonner, Kaitlyn (Josh) New, Landon Johnson; two great-great grandchildren, Kingsley New, Kashton New. and a host of beloved nieces and nephews. She was born in Anniston and saw the beginning of the automobile age; witnessed the beginning of electricity; survived the Great Depression. She worked at Anniston Ordinance Depot as a young woman, driving everything from jeeps to Sherman Tanks. Many of her nieces and nephews spent much of their lives at Aunt Bernice's house. She always made sure everyone had plenty to eat. Anyone who knew her can attest to what a wonderful cook she was. Her biscuits could float off the plate and her cakes would make the angels sing. She loved canning and her favorite time of the year was harvest time. Jesus said, "For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was imprisoned and you came to Me." This is a testimony of Bernice's life, this is the way she lived. She may have had modest means, but she gave so much to so many. Today she has heard Jesus say "Well done My Daughter", as she was greeted by her beloved husband, Ralph, her daughter, Jacqueline, her parents, Virginia and Robert Langley and all of her loved ones in the great Cloud of Witnesses.
