Condolences & Memories (9 entries)
My memories go back along time ago..when Auntie Beans would visit the farm (John and Jean Morton's 3 miles west of Elphinstone) Her pretty face and cute clothes always made me envious of this smart styling lady. She smelled so nice and her hair was just so! She would steal my wee cousin Cinnamon and the giggling would start! Lots of fun was had when she visited. I never saw her once I moved west (1973) and that was sad. Two of my sisters had the pleasure of spending time with her. Fond memories will remain with me forever. - Posted by: chrissie morton (niece) on: Jul 21, 2020
She was a feisty woman, kind yet bold in her own way. I'm sure she will be missed by many persons that she cared about. Rest in peace Bernice - Posted by: CAROLYN (SEMENCHUK) on: Jul 16, 2020

I first met Burnell’s at the GST office in 1990. I enjoyed her company and we did have some good laughs together. A really nice person. I’m really sorry to hear that she’s passed. She was quite a gal. - Posted by: Don Dupuis (Co-worker) on: Jul 16, 2020
My condolences on Bernice's passing. I worked with Bernice over her career with the Canada Revenue Agency...first in Federal Sales Tax and Excise followed by GST and lastly when the Department was integrated as the CRA including Income Tax, GST and Excise. Bernice is remembered as an employee who worked hard, had an excellent work ethic and encouraged others to have pride in their work as well. I had the opportunity to have many personal conversations with Bernice and she always had an interest in my children and grandchildren. I will always remember Bernice as a person with a very kind heart and someone who was genuinely interested in her work and the welfare of others. She will be missed. Doug McLean, former Director of the Winnipeg Tax Services Office. - Posted by: Doug McLean (Co-worker) on: Jul 16, 2020
Carol, very sorry for your loss. Worked with Bernice for years and she always had a special spot in her heart for children. She would always ask about my kids and they would want to know how Mrs. Blackbird was doing. When the kids would stop by the office Bernice always has a kind word and usually a full bag of snacks for the kids to eat later. - Posted by: Mark Grindle (Co Worker) on: Jul 14, 2020

To the family, condolences on the passing of Bernice. My sister Audrey was school chums/roommates with Bernice in Winnipeg where they worked. Carol and I went to school together and were good friends. Although many years have passed those wonderful Elphinstone school days have good memories. I lived at the Coast moving with my parents in the 60's but I have recently moved back and living in Erickson. May the memories of Bernice bring comfort to the family over the coming days/months. - Posted by: Shelley (Kotyk) Watson (School friends) on: Jul 11, 2020
