Berenice was a very dedicated Hospice volunteer and she also gave solace and comfort to many grieving children at Camp Good Hope in Florida.

With that in mind, in lieu of plants and flowers, the family would greatly appreciate that donations be made in her name to Cedar Community Hospice in West Bend.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of the staff at Cedar Community Crossings and Hospice for having touched Berenice’s life in such a very special way.

Shimon Funeral Home is assisting the family.
