December 9, 1939 – August 18, 2015
Bernice was born in Lumby, BC on December 9, 1939.
She had six sisters and one brother who were all raised in the Vernon, BC area.
Bernice, a devoted wife and mother, is survived by her husband Larry Melin and three daughters; Carolee, Colleen and Kim.
Larry and Bernice were blessed with nine grandchildren and six great grandchildren (and counting….).
She loved helping people, nature (especially flowers), and music.
Bernice lived her life with a strong attachment to her Creator, and a firm belief that he will remember her in the coming resurrection. Her faith has sustained her, and kept her positive during a long battle with cancer which she fought with courage and dignity.
Bernice will be greatly missed
by her family and friends, and will leave a void in our lives that cannot be filled.
A memorial service for Bernice was held Aug. 24, 2015 at 4 pm at the Kindgom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 134 Baxter Ave., Kitimat, BC
