On Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 an angel sealed the lips of our beloved mother. She passed this life at The Presbyterian Home of Quitman, Ga. surrounded by her family and friends. She entered this life on Aug. 29, 1926. Bernice was preceded in death by her husband Eddie, parents Sam and Marie Bradley, three brothers, Samuel, Charlie, Ulysses and one sister Virginia Richardson.
Mother Bernice was born in Lowndes County where she attended public schools. Early in life she joined Brays Temple Missionary Baptist Church. Later she joined Morningstar Missionary Baptist Church where she enjoyed singing in the choir. She served faithfully. Sister Bernice was a born again Christian, loved by many.
