Betty Bernice Blake Obituary
On Tuesday June 24th, our loving wife, mother, and friend passed away at the age of 82. She is survived by her husband and best friend Bill Blake of 64 years as well as her sister Goldie Gentry of Benicia Ca, son Doug Blake, daughter Amanda Myrick and son-in law Steve Myrick. She greatly impacted the lives of her grandchildren Dustin Wardlow, Damon Wardlow, Darcie Blake, Matt Blake, Ashley Gearhart , Steven Myrick Jr and great grandchildren Zachary Wardlow, Megan Wardlow, Carter Wardlow, Dylan Wardlow, and Veronica Blake.
Bernice was preceded in death by her daughter Deborah Blake and sisters Violet Blake, Norma Cox, Cleta Walters, Lena Vibe and Ailia Butterfield.
Bernice shared a love of traveling with her husband Bill and best friends. If someone felt the urge to go somewhere, they were packed and ready to go. These friends meant the world to her. Specifically, the friends made through the involvement with Beta Chi Sorority of which she belonged to for 47 years. She was always busy planning social gatherings, charity events, fundraisers and road trips. She loved making family and friends feel welcome in her home. Her love and generosity has been significant to many, and will continue to influence and guide us in the future.
Services will be held 10am on Tuesday July 1st 2014 at Hillcrest Mortuary, 9101 Kern Canyon Rd, Bakersfield California 93306.
