Bernie was born on August 23, 1942 to Dean and Bernice Bellman at the Ottumwa, Iowa Hospital.

Bernie was a member of Grace United Methodist Church for 64 years. She was involved in many different organizations there. Bernie was friends with many people through the years; there was a large group that celebrated all of their birthdays and had many lunches and holidays together. She visited friends on the West Coast, traveled to Sweden to visit relatives, and went on trips to Rodeos. She was an avid sports fan of the Cubs and the Patriots.

Those left to honor her memory are her brother Jerry (Bea) Bellman; a niece Tara Baze, nephew Eric Bellman, great nephew Brandon (fiancé Allison) Baze and her girls Emmy and Ryleigh; great-niece Shelby Charlot, great nephew Alex Charlot, and many special cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents and her cousin Tim Peterson.

We will all miss her greatly as she spent many holidays and birthdays with us. We know her spirit continues in Heaven but her body rests at Davenport Memorial Park.

ADD A MEMORY
Bernadine Bellman

July 6, 2021

Our families, the Bellmans and the Wallings (Ned & Bonnie and girls), along with a couple others, would get together for dinners at each other's houses. Although Bernadine was a little older than the Walling girls (Jo, Mary, Sherry and Elizabeth), she was always fun to be with, and played games with us. I ran into her a few times at Grace when I was working with Head Start there, and we shared those memories. I have a warm spot in my heart for her, Jerry, and her parents. God bless.

Dear Family of Bernie : We a so sorry for the Loss of Bernie . She was our close neighbor for close to 30 years. Both myself and my wife Shelly and our Son Dan have enjoyed her company and she became our friend. Bernie loved life and she enjoyed it as long as she could. Her smile could light up a room and she always had on a cute outfit on including her many hats. We will miss visiting with her which we did many times outside and in her home. Bernie is a very thoughtful person a good listener and helpful with her advise. All three of us were more than happy to help her out at any time, and we knew that she appreciated everything. We are sorry that we can not attend her visitation or funeral. Our thoughts are with her Brother and family at this difficult time. We know that she is at peace and her long fight is over.
