She was born March 16, 1927 in Fort Wayne, IN, to the late Charles J. and Bertha (Greiner) Gebhart. Bernice was a kind, caring soul, exhibiting a sweet disposition with an independent, resilient spirit. Bernice lived an exhilarating life, full of family, friends, service, sports and travel. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Indiana University in 1975, and retired in 1992 as an Administrative Assistant to the president of Zollner Corporation after 33 years of service. She was a lifelong, faithful member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and active in the St. Vincent DePaul Society. Bernice taught English to Vietnamese refugees, regularly visited the sick and infirmed, drove friends and family around town, and administered Holy Communion to those unable to attend mass. She enjoyed golf, tennis, bowling, bicycling, walking, bridge, and spending winters on the gulf coast in southern Alabama. She was an avid world traveler, visiting most states in America and over 40 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America.

She is survived by six nieces and nephews, 13 great-nieces and nephews, and five great-great nieces and nephews. Bernice is preceded in death by a sister, Dorothy Broucek, and brothers Robert and Charles Gebhart.
