She is further survived by her sisters, brothers and many dear friends and relatives.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Sunday, Oct. 8, at 2 p.m. at St. Kilian Catholic Church, 428 Forest St., Hartford, with Father Don Hying officiating assisted by Father David LaPlante.

Visitation at the Shimon Funeral Home, Hartford, will be on Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m., with a prayer service at 5 p.m.

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.
