Bernadine Hohl, of Fort Walton Beach, Fla. passed away on Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014, at the age of 82.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James R. Hohl; and a son, James Joseph.
She was born in Windber, Pa. on Jan. 29, 1932, and raised in Buffalo, N.Y. until meeting and marrying a career airman, James Hohl, in 1952. They traveled the world and raised nine children. Most of their time was served in Spain, where five of the children were born.
Bernadine taught the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) program every place she lived. She was a trained Catholic teacher and was recognized many times for her leadership. She earned the admiration and friendship of her fellow parishioners who relied on her experience and leadership.
After full retirement and more than a decade exploring the U.S. in increasingly larger RVs, Bernadine and James settled into Teresa Village, an Air Force retirement community in Fort Walton Beach.
Bernadine leaves a legacy of nine children, 23 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
