BERNICE (JOHNSON) SHERVINGTON - BURLINGTON - Bernice (Johnson) Shervington, 82, of Cathedral Square, received her angel wings on Dec. 2, 2013. She died peacefully, in her sleep, after a long period of declining health. Bernice was born Jan. 22, 1931, in New York City to Nathaniel and Louise (Singleton) Johnson. She enjoyed the simple pleasures of life: socializing, food, music, travel, tv, movies, friends and family. A stroke took her independence in 2005, but not her loving, outgoing spirit. She continued to enjoy life with her daughter's care. All will remember the wonderful smile that lit up a room. She leaves to mourn her, daughter, Gwendolyn; grandson, Melique; great-grandchildren, Sierra and Tavien; best friend, Dolores; and other relatives in New York and Las Vegas, including Ruthann, William, Natalie, Almetha, Nathaniel Jr., and their families. Bernice's soul is now reunited with her parents; her sister, Rosalie; her husband, Clyde; her daughter, Bernadette; and nephew, Nathaniel Sr. Her wake will be on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Elmwood-Meunier Funeral Home, 97 Elmwood Ave., Burlington. Flowers are welcome.
The Guest Book is expired.
