Bernice passed on March 26 leaving her family in a mournful state for a very long time to come. Born in the coal country of West Virginia in the Litwar “Holler” near the town of Iaeger. She was a family of twelve and at the age of eighteen, she left the coal country to start her own personal journey on Earth.

A very hard worker, a believer in the Lord and family, a hater of technology, and had an overwhelming love for children.

She and her husband, Orville Weber, raised five children starting in California and landed in South Dakota, and then retirement in Tennessee.

Bernice did not roll well when the “phone-in-hand” era appeared. Always commenting or challenging people at the restaurants, jay walkers, “driving with the phone attached to their head” was her most repeated phrase while riding in the car. Nevertheless, after the death of our mother, she was the conduit that kept her siblings together although they were spread around the country. She would always call each and everyone of them often to see how they and their families were doing.

Being a Christian was a major part of her life. Sometimes, I would say, “I don’t know what happens to me when I die.” And she again and consistently, would say, “Well I know.” She and I often would travel to West Virginia to visit our brother, Carl, who was bedridden for about 10 years. After an eight hour drive and arriving home safely, she would say, “Thank you Lord.” I responded once, how about, “Thank you, Jenny.” Her response would always be that I could have not done it without the Lord’s blessings.

Her life was long and consisted of laughter, sad times, hard work and most of all the joy of her grandchildren. Every meeting, every phone call would entail her giving them a lecture-be good, mind your Mom, be kind to all. I hope that all children in Bernice’s life will “shuffle” off the continuous advice but forever remember just how much she adored them.

God, I’m sure, was pleased with her journey here on Earth. Would you join us now at Hendersonville Memory Gardens and Funeral Home, 353 East Main Street, Hendersonville, TN. Viewing on Sunday, April 4th from 9:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. and service starting at 2:00 P.M. and food will be served afterwards. Let’s joyfully say good-by and give her thanks for all that she was to us personally.

    We will miss you sweetheart, I will miss the way you made me feel loved as part of Clayton’s family! Clayton always looked forward to talking to you at least a couple days a week you would call! You understood your brother and excepted him for the way he is with unconditional love!! He is thankful for that and says you will always be in his heart! So happy you’re with your loved ones that went before you, tell Cecil we said hi we love him .

    Bernice was a wonderful sister in law. I will miss her dearly. You could tell by just talking to her that she was a Godly woman. I will surely miss all the phone calls we shared. I have comfort in the fact that she is free from her health problems. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven with her husband, son, parents and siblings. Rest In peace. You have earned it. Prayers for comfort, peace and strength for all the family.

    I never actually knew Bernice personally but knew her through her brother Cecil who I graduated with from iHS. He would always post on Facebook when she would go to the hospital and ask prayers for her. Even after he passed away I continued to pray for her. So happy to read what a God fearing but God loving woman she was. Looking forward to meeting her in Heaven. Prayers of comfort to her family.

    Mom Bernice
    You gained a forever home with your Lord,
    Jesus Christ. That is the ultimate goal to achieve in this life. You will be greatly missed.
    Even pushing through all the pain, you still smiled and brought forth sunshine from your heart. I loved and admired your strength day in and day out. I pray for comfort to a sister (Jenny) that cared for her, giving it her very best. Prayers and comfort out to the grandchildren that Bernice so loved!

    Mrs. Bernice,

    You were such a sweet soul and we are so thankful to have known you. Thank you for loving us and especially our little boys. We were just neighbors, but we became like family. You never stopped caring and calling and we will deeply miss those sweet phone calls. We love you and may you rejoice in Heaven now with your Savior and your loved ones. We will miss you.
