  • The Bernice Webb Family

    So sorry to hear of the loss of you mother. My mom used to speak of your mom often when they would see each other at the Fun-and-Friendship gatherings.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family.


  • Bernice will be missed by all. She was my Aunt, and I have many fond memories of spending time with her. She had an awesome laugh and a great sense of humor. She cared deeply about people. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends.

  • Dearest Family,

    I was sorry to see the passing of Mrs. Webb. I hope that KNOWING she is with Jesus is a comfort and gives you peace. I remember riding the bus, stopping to pick up Sheila and Bernalle every Clear Fork school day. It’s sweet to remember the “old” neighbors. Sending you prayers and neighbor love, Trudy

  • Our deepest sympathy to Bernice’s family and close friends. I know Bernice was a dear friend to my Mother Dicie Hatten and they shared many special memories. May she rest pain free and worry free in the presence of Jesus.

  • Mothers are God’s special gift to all of us. Knowing that your Mom is in heaven now and in the caring arms of Jesus will bring you peace beyond all understanding. Memories will be your joy going forward. Prayers to all your family during this time, Peggy and Bernie Koerber.

  • Sorry to hear of Bernice passing, may God comfort you in his arms at this time and help you through the healing process I know she is in a much better place.

  • Bernice was a great friend and neighbor and I have been blessed to have had her in my life. I praise God for the blessings He allowed her to bring to others, for her strength and determination in how she faced life head-on regardless of the difficulty of each situation. While none of us are perfect, we are made in His image, and, because of that, we have the ability to deal with seemingly impossible situations if we allow Him to guide us. Bernice spent time in prayer and Bible study to learn as much as she could from her heavenly Father. Her faith was an inspiration to many.

    Thank, you, Lord, for sending us a Christian sister from whom we could learn…..we who knew her loved her for who she was and will miss her greatly, but know we have the promise of seeing her again.

    Loving prayers for her family,
    Mary Carroll

  • I’ve been thinking of you all the last few days as you go through this time of loss. In the midst of the grief, may you be encouraged with good memories and the knowledge of Who Bernice put her trust in. May God make His Presence known in special ways through the days ahead, as you walk through this time with Him. May His whispers bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face. May His touch fill you with His comfort and peace.
