Bernadette, I have so many memories of your quick, dry wit, the way when you delivered your punch lines and would give me the dead stare and then bust out laughing. Working with you at D'Youville was never boring and you were a strong personality who always let her voice be heard. I miss you. I knew you were a woman of strong faith. I know you are busy in heaven giving God some pointers on how to fix this crazy world we live in. Until we meet again.❤️

Bernadette and I (Randy) met our Freshman year at D'Youville College back in 1965. Nine of us became dear friends and lived on the same dorm floor all four years. We continued our friendship over these past 50+ years and have had many mini-reunions. Our last was in Buffalo in 2019. Bernadette will be sorely missed by all of us. Her quick wit and laugh will be something we all will remember. She remains in our hearts. God bless you, dear friend! Have a blast in heaven and please give Alice a huge hug from us.

I remember some very nice and great instructors in nursing school. Mrs. Pursel was definitely one of them. I never minded going to her classes. Sorry to hear this sad news.
