Aunt Bernadine brought back memories of stopping at Grandma’s after Sunday mass and she would not let us kids eat her candy.

My sympathies to Katherine and all the nieces and nephews. Bernadine was a good person. I worked with her from l944 thru l952 at the Cambria Mining Co. Webb Mine office, which was upstairs of the old Post Office Bldg. She was an excellent secretary—a “take charge” person. Had a habit of being late —Katherine can attest to that -: She was frendly,intelligent, strong willed and an independent person. I enjoyed working with her. May she rest in peace.

Our Aunt Bernadine was a very thoughtful, warm, and welcoming individual. Chuck has heart felt memories of Sunday visits with her. I recall engaging and joy filled conversations with her. A kind and gentle soul. The world is a bit dimmer without her, and the heavens a great bit brighter with her. A faith filled woman.

She walked everywhere always with her hat on-never drove a car. “She’ll be walking the heavens”!…
