Memorial Services for Bernice B. Ward, 79, of Picayune, Miss., who passed away Monday, June 17, 2013, at her home in Picayune Park.

Bernice was a precious lady who loved the Lord.

Bernice was a member of the PIcayune community for thirteen years and was a devoted Christian. She had been a member of Parkview Baptist Church since 2002 and had her own key to the Church. She used that key to prepare for Bible Studies, to clean and straighten the sanctuary, and to assist her church and her Pastor in whatever was needed. She taught children in Sunday School and attended the babies in the nursery. She sang in the choir and was often a soloist in services. Bernice loved making jewelry to give to the ladies and Bible bookmarks for the men. She also loved to crochet. She made hats for cancer sufferers as well as blankets. Bernice retired from K&B Drug/Ride Aide after 25 years.
