Bernice was known to her friends and relatives as a quick wit and could always bring a smile to their face with a joke or wry comment. She enjoyed playing Bingo with her friend's and never turned down an invitation to visit "Vegas" to spend time with her best pal, Antoinette (Toni) Bradley. Bernice was kind and generous woman and a lady most of all. She brightened the day of everyone with whom she came in contact. Her nieces and nephews liked to call her "Aunt B" and her grandchildren called her "momma".
