REMEMBRANCE WITH LOVE

God has called from labor to heavenly reward, the soul of our dear mother, Ms. Bernice Lee.
Ms. Bernice Lee was born on October 3rd, 1937 in Manning, S.C. She was the daughter of Richmond Wells, Sr. and Ethel Mae Riggins.
After marrying Robert Lee, she moved to Chicago, Illinois. She joined the True Solomon Church and was a faithful member since 1970. She earned a certificate of ministry under her pastor Rev. John Bell of Chicago, Ill.
Bernice Lee was a positive and motivating person to everyone she met. She was blessed with the ability to comfort and guide any troubled soul. She was one who put others needs above her own. She was a jovial woman, wearing a smile for the world to share, letting even the loneliest know that God always cares. Bernice Lee was a faithful friend and everyone of them will always remember her special love.
Although today seems sad and full of tears, remember God was her saviour, so lets say amen to that.
Sleep on Bernice and take your rest, we all loved you, but God loved you best. So he took you home where in peace, you can rest.
She leaves to mourn: three children: her son, Willie P. Lee, her son, George H. Lee and her daughter, Brenda B. Lee; all of Chicago, Ill.; eleven grandchildren; her mother and father, Ethel Mae Wells and Richmond Wells, Sr.; six sisters; Ms. Dorothy Williams, Mrs. Bessie King, Mrs. Lila Robinson, Mary Ann Wells, Mrs. Loretta Jones, and Pernice Sylvia Wells, all from Philadelphia; four brothers: Wesley of Wilmington, North Carolina, Sammuel of New York, Willie and Lawrence of Philadelphia; thirty-five nieces, nineteen nephews, nine great nephews and four great nieces, five aunts: Mrs. Agnes Kelly, Mrs. Luticia Gary, Mrs. Rethia Thames, of S.C., Mrs. Pauline Riggins of N.C., Mrs. Lizzie Riggins; five uncles: Mr. Harden Wells of S.C., Mr. Luke Blackwell of S.C., Mr. Allen Riggins of Florida and Mr. Edward Gary, a divorced husband, Robert Lee; mother-in-law, Annie Lee; nine brothers and sisters-in-law: Mr. & Mrs. Silas Hodges, Mr. & Mrs. Herman Lee, Mr. & Mrs. D.C. Lee, Mr. & Mrs. Charlie Lee, Mr. & Mrs. Willie Lee, Mr. & Mrs. Vest Anderson, Mr. & Mrs. MacAnderson, and Mr. & Mrs. Robert Henderson; a host of other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends, whom she loved dearly.
Oh my servants who believed, truly spacious is my earth, therefore serve you me, and me alone! Every soul shall have a test of death in the end to us shall you be brought back. But who believe and work deeds of righteousness, to them shall we give, a home in heaven: lofty mansions beneath which flow rivers to dwell there in forever, an excellent reward for those who do good. - amen.
