MULOCK, Bernice

November 20, 1931 - February 14, 2021

Bernice passed away in the evening, at home, with her husband Ed by her side.

She was predeceased by her son Paul (Marilyn). She will be missed by her husband, Ed; sons, Ned (Cindy) and Jeff (Mary Beth); grandchildren, Tyson (Jenna), T.J. (Brittany), Jessica, Allison, and Miranda (Nak); great-grandchildren, Krew, Penn, and Calla; brothers, Keith and Murray; sister, Madeline; step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and many other relatives in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Ireland.

Born in Ripples, New Brunswick, she graduated from Fredericton Business College after which she worked for North American Life Assurance Company. In 1951 while working evenings at the Lord Beaverbrook Hotel she had the honour of waiting on Princess Elizabeth (now Queen). She married Ed in 1951 and the couple moved to Vancouver in 1952, where she continued to work while raising the three boys with Ed.

Bernice and Ed were founding members of the North Shore Winter Club (NSWC) where she swam, played tennis, curled, and played duplicate bridge. In 1982, after winning the B.C. Senior Ladies Curling Championships, her curling team represented B.C. at the Canadian Senior Curling Championships in Montreal where they tied for second place. An exceptional duplicate bridge player, she looked after the NSWC duplicate bridge club for 73 years and was a duplicate bridge Life Master. She was very involved with the NSWC and served as the first female President in 1983 and 1984. The NSWC was a big part of the family's life and Bernice loved the club.

Always active in the North Shore community, she was secretary of the North Shore Safety Council and the North Shore Soccer Association, and was the Referee Assignor for North and West Vancouver soccer fields for many, many years - only a computer was eventually able to take over that task.

She will be missed by the St. Agnes Church community, of which she was a very dedicated member since 1957.

Those who knew Bernice will remember her as a remarkably strong, bright, loving woman, who was very proud of her family and their accomplishments.

A service will be held at St. Agnes Church in the fall of 2021.

"Rest in peace my love, until we meet again."

Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother as well as Paul. Brad and I have always enjoyed our annual visit with Aunt Bernice and Uncle Ed and have had many great conversations. I know it has been many years since we have all been together and I only hope we don't lose further touch. Please know our doors in New Brunswick are always open and extend a warm welcome to all of our family out West to come to NB to enjoy a glass of wine on "the Lake"! One day when we are able to travel again Brad and I plan to make our way West, lets hope it's not in the too distance future. Thinking of you all.

Please accept our sincere condolences to all of you. Brad and I have always enjoyed our annual visit with Aunt Bernice and Uncle Ed and had many a great conversation. And even then I learned so much about her from this wonderfully written obituary! I know it has been many years since we've all been together and only hope that we don't lose touch. One day Brad and I hope to visit BC again and hope that you will come back to New Brunswick to enjoy a glass of wine on "the Lake". Love, Tabatha Denton Crawford & Brad, Kaitlyn and Jack.

I wanted to pass my condolences to the family. Bernice was my referee scheduler when I first started in 2007. She continued to be my scheduler for the next 5 or so years after that. I would always look forward to her Tuesday call, but even more so her Friday night desperation call where I would always accept a late assignment. I only had the pleasure of meeting her once, however, I continue to officiate with her son’s, Ned and Jeff who’ve also had significant impacts on the refereeing community. Rest In Peace, Bernice.
