Bernice enjoyed bowling, dancing, making rugs, playing cards with family, traveling, gardening and canning, embroidery, and had a great love of laughter. She was a long-time member of St. Willibrord’s Catholic Church in Gibbon then joined Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm, where she’s been a member for the last 15 years.
