Bernadette was born a coal miner's daughter in southeast Ohio, the third oldest of twelve children. Growing up as a Roman Catholic, this foundation would play a very strong part in her life. Bernadette was a true child of God, her faith brought her through many trials in her life as well as brought many joys. She was a kind and gentle soul who was no stranger and was always willing to help anyone. She was truly innocent at heart. She was a unanimous favorite by friends and family members alike. Her greatest of joys was being a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She always wanted to spread love to the world, and she did just that. Even to all the animals that she knew. Bernadette passed peacefully surrounded by her family on Good Friday the 15th of April 2022, in an hour of the Lords passing.
