CHARLESTON, Ill. —
She and Max were both avid bridge players and Berneice was a member of numerous bridge clubs. She excelled at making their house a warm and loving home where all who entered its doors felt comfortable and welcome and were usually offered a piece of freshly baked pie. She somehow always kept up with the canning and freezing of the ample produce generated by Max’s gardens and orchards and her kitchen was usually filled with the aroma of baked “goodies” or her fabulous peanut brittle. She was recognized for her gooseberry pie which was known to fetch quite a price when being auctioned for a charitable cause.
Berneice was an extremely kindhearted and generous woman and was always doing and caring for others. There are many lives which have been enhanced through her warmth and loving generosity – whether it was through a much needed meal she prepared, a phone call made or a card sent. Berneice’s family and many friends will always remember her as a gracious woman never expecting anything in return for her love and many kindnesses extended not only to them but to a multitude of others.
