Bernadine loved being a mom and a grandmother. Her passion was spending time with her family and all of her wonderful friends in Grandview.
She was an avid seamstress and had a passion for fashion and dressing up.
Bernadine was always ready for a bridge game. She belonged to three bridge groups. As a matter of fact, she met her husband, Forrest, over a bridge game in college.
Bernadine was a warm and nurturing person. Her three children remember her homemade cinnamon rolls on Saturday mornings and fesh-baked cooking coming out of the oven when we arrived home from school.
She is survived by her husband, Forrest; daughters, Merrilee (Doug) Nelson of Yakima and Susan Caufield of Sammamish; son, Bob (Elaine) Caufield of Bellevue, and their children, Scott, Amanda, and Rachel.
