Born and raised in the Mazenod area, Bernice graduated Education from the University of Saskatchewan and taught for many years in Regina and surrounding areas before becoming involved with the Saskatchewan Correspondence School eventually serving as Principal until she retired in 2001. A wonderful cook, avid gardener, and loyal Rider fan; in retirement, Bernice found great joy in her grandchildren, family, and friends. In recent years she was an active advocate for cancer patient safety and care, serving on several boards/committees for the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region and Saskatchewan Cancer Agency with a focus on improving patient safety and the compassionate link medical professionals have with their patients.
