Bernice (Neff) Sutherland passed away at the Biggar Health Centre on Friday September 25, 2020.
Left to cherish her memory is her sons, Larry (Rita) and their family Tana & Bryce (Corinna) great grandchildren, Jack; Desiree (Chris) their children Kailey, Joshua & Ben; Faith, Danielle & Grace; Lorne (Cheryl); Keane (Meagan); Brad (Penny); Christine, great granddaughter Ella; Craig (Rena); Stephen (Meagan).
Bernice was born in Moose Jaw, SK on December 4, 1927.
Bernice and Murray were married on Sept. 28, 1946 in Plentywood, Montana U.S.A.
They lived in Moose Jaw & Radville (where their first son Larry was born), moved back to Moose Jaw & finally to Biggar in 1949 where Lorne & Brad were born and she spent the rest of her life. Bernice was active in St. Paul’s Anglican Church, sang in the choir & spent many hours baking & serving for activities of the church. She was also an active member of the Order of Royal Purple (Charter Member), bowled for many years, played bridge, cherished her grandchildren all her active life & more.
In spite of having 3 boys she was asked to help out with the Girl Guides. She spent 10 years as a leader (three of those as a Division Commissioner), also spent many, many winters at the rink cheering on “her boys” including grandsons, as they started playing hockey, and of course Murray & the Oldtimers. After Murray retired, they travelled, driving to the U.S.A. in the winter & enjoying the sun, as well as travelling to Mexico to several resorts and cruised the Panama Canal. Later they bought a mobile home and rented a lot at Turtle Lake Lodge, enjoying visits from family and friends (especially grandchildren).
Bernice moved to Norwest Apartments in May 2015 (close to Murray in Long Term Care). She was happy there and was glad she made the move. Murray passed away in March of 2017.
At Bernice’s request there will be no service.
