An email sent to the Northwest Regional Writers -- local writers group founded by Bernice
"I just found out that Bernice died yesterday morning (Wednesday, Jan.25) at the the Frederic Nursing and Rehab Community where she'd been cared for since Jan.13.
The funeral will be on Saturday, Jan 28 at the Lewis Methodist Church at 11 o'clock, with visitation at 10. That's all I know at the moment.
I think we should keep our February assignment of writing tributes to Bernice."
