She attended St. Gerard's High School and met her husband, Eugene Cooper Gray, at a USO dance and the two were married on February 26, 1946.

Her many passions included travel, dancing, bunko and dominoes with her girls, caring for children, and time spent with her family, friends, and kin. A parishioner at St. Padre Pio's, she was a member of the Silver Pace Setters and for many years volunteered at the church. Bernice had tremendous love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, she relished all social occasions, lived life to the fullest, and never allowed age or circumstance to slow her down or diminish her love of life.
