Bernice Loree "Sliger" Stevenson Obituary

Bernice Loree (Sliger) Stevenson of Yuba City, age 88, passed away January 7, 2018. She was born in Hallwood, CA and was a graduate of Marysville High School. Later in life she went on to graduate from Chico State University with a teaching credential.

Bernice's passions included teaching, painting, and gathering family together for good food and good times. She was an elementary school teacher for many years in both in Linda, CA and Soldotna, Alaska and in her retirement enjoyed being approached by former students in appreciation of the impact she had on their lives. She loved spending the summer months with family in the small forest town of Downieville, CA along the Yuba River.

She was preceded in death by her parents Bud and Fray Sliger; siblings Betty Sevdy, Bill, Ross, and Jack Sliger; and children Connie, Denice and Curtis Higgins.

Bernice leaves behind two children, Daniel Higgins of Marysville, CA and Ronald Higgins of Loma Rica, CA, as well as ten grandchildren and twenty-three great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 1pm at Sierra View Memorial Park in Olivehurst. In the event of inclement weather, services will be moved indoors to the mortuary at Sierra View.
