Bernice will be missed by all who were lucky enough to share her life. She was such a good friend to all and especially to my mother who left her home in Delaware to spend her final years in Woodstock. I'll always cherish the memory of "the moms" with their CUBS shirts, hats,etc. eating peanuts and enjoying the games on TV together!
