Please join us on June 10th, from 1-3 pm at THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, LAKEFIELD CHAPEL to help us celebrate Bernice’s life. Internment will follow. Bernice was a country girl with her roots in Hartsmere and eventually moved to Peterborough/surrounding area where she married Don Welsh. She worked at Bonnerworth in her early work life followed by General Electric where she retired after 40+ years. During this time she somehow managed to be a wife and mother to four children: Marilyn, Bill, Wayne and David. Bernice was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. We were all blessed with her love, spunk and dedication to her family. Please join us as we share stories and memories of her amazing life.
