She also bowled in the bowling league, was a huge Red Lake Warrior fan and enjoyed watching the little league world series. When Bernice wasn't busy working her many jobs such as Cap, Red Lake Housing Finance, the Redby Post Office, Red Lake Casino and at the Red Lake Foods, she liked to watch her T.V. shows too, like the Young and the Restless and other game shows. She liked to escape to the casino when she could, visiting with her customers at the smoke shop, and more importantly, spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
