Bernice was the oldest living daughter of Andrew and Victoria Bilski.
Bernice's parents (Andrew/Victoria Bilski), older sister Frances and paternal grandparents (Albert and Angelia Bilski) are buried in Norway Township cemetery in Dickinson County, Michigan (behind Norway fair grounds). Her maternal grandparents, Edward/Isydor and Rosalia, her aunt Frances are buried in the Quinnesec cemetery as well as a brother, Walter, and Walter's daughter, Victoria Joan.
Bernice moved from Norway, Michigan to South Milwaukee, Wisconsin around 1940-1942 and did factory/labor work. She married Oscar Rolland Reynolds around 1950. Bernice had a daughter in 1954, and she was a houskeeper when married (Bernice didn't have to work outside of home).
Bernice lived in South Milwaukee with her husband until about 1952 and moved to the nearby city of Oak Creek.
Bernice had the following siblings: John (Naoma) of Indiana/Tennessee, Walter (Alyson) of Kingsford, Michigan and Joan Bilski of Desert Hot Springs, California. She also had an older sister named Frances who died a week after Frances was born in this world.
Bernice probably died of a stroke/mital insufficiencies, alike her maternal grandfather. Bernice had other ailments but they did not cause her death.
She is buried with her husband, Oscar. They are buried in section 11 at Forest Hill Memorial Park cemetery in Oak Creek WI as their final resting place.
I recall getting a call at 7-7:30 am from nursing home saying she died in her sleep between 4-6 am and a nurse saying she was one of her best behaved clients.
The photos shown are Bernice about 10 years before her passing, rooming out/South Milwaukee years and a photo of her (lower left) of her and her brother John (top).
