Bernice Mulligan

May 9, 1927February 23, 2013

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".

It's amazing how so many people feel like Bernice was like a "second mom" to them. My siblings and I feel the same way. Can there be a nicer compliment as there is nothing as pure and strong as a mother's love. Thank you Bernice for being a a second mom to my siblings and I as we grew up along side you on Sherman Avenue. We are eternally grateful. They say good things come in small packages. Bernice proves this to be true.

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Bernice. She and the Mulligan family are a big part of the wonderful memories I have growing up on Sherman Ave. I remember Halloween when the grown ups dressed in costume and went trick or treating; I have pictures to prove it! I'm sure Bernnice was behind that. She was witty and had a great sense of humor;she will be truly missed. I regret I can not make it to the services as I am away; I will be thinking of you all.
