Bernice was predeceased by her eldest son Thomas in 1990, and by her four sisters: Eliza, Gwen, Anne and Heather. Bernice was born in Porquis Junction, ON, spent her elementary schooling in Englehart, and high school at NBCVI in North Bay. In the 1970’s she earned a BA in education at Concordia University in Montreal.

She was also a keen member of the North Bay Golden Angels Knitting group, following her favourite pastime. Bernice will be cremated and buried with Thomas in Terrace Lawn Cemetery. Because of family travel considerations, a celebration of her life will be Sunday, November 10, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at MARTYN FUNERAL HOME, 464 Wyld St. North Bay.
