At the time Bernice was a checker at Safeway, she was also a servant of god. I was a customer in her checkout when I was very pregnant. I had become too warm and as I was fainting, she reached over the counter and held on to me as I went down When I came to, she and others were bathing my face with wet paper towels. Her act of kindness I always remember. May she Rest In Peace and love and comfort to her family for knowing love in her heart was given at a time of need

Bernice was such a wonderful, fun, loving lady. I will miss her greatly! Love you, Debbie

Bernice. Our family couldn't imagine better neighbors. We've know each other since 1955. You will be missed. You have been loved beyond measure.
