They were blessed with three daughters: Lorna, Linda and Lesley and their son, Neil Lee Jr. With Bernice’s love of her church, she and Neil were custodians at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church for many years. She shared over 60 years of her time and talents as a member of Our Saviors and made pasties with the Kelly Lake Ladies Aide.

She was a true and faithful servant who will be greatly remembered in our hearts.
