ITHACA - Bernice Marie Bolwsby , 78, of 355 N. Van Dorns Road, died Sunday, December 26, 2004, at home. Born May 11, 1926 in Kingston, NY, she was a daughter of the late Harold and Nellie Post Hatfield and wife of the late Charles E. Bowlsby who died in 1983.

Prior to her retirement, she had been employed at the Hillside Inn and later as a cook at Kelly's Dockside Café. Among her greatest joys were baking, playing cards, and doing jigsaw puzzles, but most important to her was her family, especially her grandchildren, whom she took great pride and joy in.

Mrs. Bowlsby is survived by her children, Sandra Fields (Dick), Judy Ross (Bill Boylan), David Bowlsby (Ann), George Bowlsby, and Rod Ross, all of Ithaca; 7 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren, and her sister, Elmira Wise. In addition to her parents and husband, Mrs. Bowlsby was predeceased by her son, Charles "Teddy" Bowlsby; grandson, Chris Hyer; and sisters, Bertha Platner and Minnie Mosher.
