Bernice Falconer beloved wife of George passed away on Monday, April 21, 2014 at the age of 81 years.

Bernice was very hospitable and loved to host parties. She was known for her great cooking; no one ever left her table hungry. Everyone remembers Bernice’s signature cinnamon buns; it was said more than once that she had “nice buns”. The Alliance Church was a big part of Bernice and George’s life. They dedicated many hours to the church and through these connections made many lifelong friends.

    To Uncle George; Ruth & Bob; Paul & Betty; Jim & Lori and your families.
    The passing of Auntie Bernice was so sad, and yet she is probably visiting with my mom right now. Oh the stories they will be telling! The family and friends they will be seeing! It is wonderful to know that all is well now. We grieve for ourselves, being left behind as it were; but for your Mom – oh it is glory! For she is ‘at home with the Lord.’
    Rejoice with her and for her. Our prayers continue for you. God bless you for all your care for her these past years.
    We love you, Don & Jan
