|Birth: ||Jul. 22, 1904|

Berniece is the oldest child of Gordon and Josie (Piskulla) Davis. She married Rex Copp in 1923 and remained a true helpmate until his death in 1939. They have four daughters: Catherine, Rexine, Lorene and Jacqueline.
She married again in 1947 to Ed Cheyney, who died in 1988. They have one daughter, Colleen.
Berniece lost her mother at the age of sixteen, buried two husbands, raised five daughters, and survived numerous strokes...what a courageous woman she was.
This beautiful lady was my maternal Grandmother. She taught me by example, "You never stop learning". She instilled in me a love for needlework. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and wish for "one more day".
Berniece appears on the 1910 and 1920 Censuses with her parents, Gordon and Josie.
