Bernice worked for the Philadelphia Gas Commission for many years. Bernice was extremely proud of her Polish heritage. She loved music (especially the big bands), dancing, the casinos and the Mummer's string bands. The love she had for all her grandchildren was unconditional and constant.

Mom, You were the best person I've ever known. The greatest mother any one could ask for. You raised me so well and taught me everything I needed to be a good person. I hope I made you proud of me. I could never repay you for all you've done and all the times you were there for me making me feel like I could get through it. My heart is broken without you but I KNOW YOU ARE HEARING ME AND HELPING ME ALREADY!
You are a beautiful, kind, loving woman. I'm very grateful you are my mommy. Please keep me on your prayer list because I need it. I'LL ALWAYS LOVE MY MAMMA!!
