Berneice was a hardworker being a wonderful homemaker and wife of a farmer – helping milk cows and everything else related to the farm life. Her bread and rolls were her specialty and she was always searching for the next great recipe! She enjoyed reading and crossword puzzles. She was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in the Primary, Young Women’s and Relief Society.
Much of her time was spent doing what she loved the most: taking care of her grandkids! Her upbeat and happy personality will be deeply missed.
