She joyfully shared her gift of faith and love for God to all she met by her kind acts and words. Bernice was a member of The Paulites for many years, and enjoyed working in soup kitchens. Bernice worked at the Navy Yards, and as a secretary for Dr. Paul Landmann, as well as Sams Wholesale and enjoyed volunteering at the Rialto Square Theater. Bernice was a member of the Church of St. Anthony in Joliet, IL.
