Bernita Lea Tull Obituary

On October 26, 2015, Bernita Lea Tull, 83, slipped into the arms of our Lord Jesus after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease.

Bernita was born December 16, 1931 in Stockton, CA. to parents Milton and Gladys Hurlbut. She grew up in Turlock and Hilmar, CA, graduated from Hilmar Union High School in 1950 and Yuba College in 1952. On November 21, 1953 she married Marden J Tull and was married for 55 years.

She worked for Production Credit Association for 32 years, then for Bradleys Department Store for 7 years and finished her career at Mathews Rice Dryer/Cordua Irrigation District for 23 years.

Bernita is survived by her children Forest Tull (Bobbie) and Mardell Heron (Bob); grandchildren Hunter and Spencer Tull; sister-in-laws Barbara Hurlbut who lovingly cared for her until the end and Ann Hurlbut; 3 step-grandchildren and a loving extended family of step-great-grand children, nieces and nephews who loved her unconditionally.

She was preceded in death by both her parents and her brothers Harley, Stanley and Robert Hurlbut.

Bernita enjoyed spending time with her family, friends, and trips to casinos.

With great sadness we ask, "and what is it to cease breathing but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?"

She is forever loved and in our hearts and will be greatly missed.

Graveside service will be at the Sierra View Memorial Park on Friday, October 30, 2015, at 10:00 am with a Celebration of Life following.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation or Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
