Bernice worked during WWII in New York City for Young and Rubicam. She married Courtney Burton on Oct. 14, 1942 the day before Courtney shipped out to serve his country! Upon his return, they had 2 children: Carol and Linda (Kochanov).
Bernice knew her time with her family was to be short lived, but she never complained, never showed her discomfort. She was an amazing role model.
