    A message from Ottawa from Roger and Cathy to Grant Soroka and family: Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you. We mourn the loss of our dear friend Bernice whom we will always remember. She was a very special lady who loved life and laughter, and we will miss her dearly.

  • June & Laura Balogh says:

    With deep sadness that Mom and I are writing this. Mom and I lived in Centuria and got to know Bernice her infectious laughter and hugh smile. She had a hugh giving and loving heart. When we moved back to Vancouver Bernice visited when she came back from her holiday. The three of us had a wonderful dinner sharing stories of her holiday and of our move. We will always rembember Bernice for what she gave and shared and that was her love and kindness. We spent the last couple months talking with Bernice and trying to deal with the every changing person Bernice was becoming. We lost our dear friend and their will not be day or an email that we will not think of Bernice. She use to send some pretty crazy emails always filled with laughs. Our condolence goes to Grant and family in the loss of his mom such a special lady. She is now in the lords arms and looking down on each of us. She is at peace and saying to each of us remember me remember my smile but mostly remember my laughter.

    With love for Bernice Laura & June Balogh

    I am very sorry to hear of Bernices passing.I was Bernices hairstylist when she lived in Grand Forks.Her appointments were full of laughter and joy.I lost touch when she moved and have thought of her often…my condolences to her family.

  • Gerry and Judy Foster says:

    Bernice- had a wonderful connection to the Grand Forks baseball tournament the GFI. The love story of she and Ron meeting at the GFI in 1999,was when we first met her, then their wedding by Gerry in 2001.Her brave return to the GFI alone in 2006 until this year was something we always looked forward to.In our reserved seating area of which Bernice was a part,we were a “baseball fan” family sharing our lives and their happenings through the year. Bernice was loyal to the GFI. She laughed, cheered and shared Joe’s nut snacks together through many of those games.I can hear her as I write.Her two reserved seats will always have a beautiful memory of friendship and a great love story we fondly remember and have told many times.
    Our condolences to all the family at Bernice’s passing.
    (I had called Saturday night when in kelowna as Marge Bannert had given me some info.)
    With sympathy and great appreciation for Bernice’s spirit of happiness she shared.
