On Oct. 18, 1941, she married Fred G. Fetting in Elgin, Ill. The couple farmed in Illinois and in the Greenwood and Loyal area for many years. Bernice was a loving mother, wife and homemaker. She served as an Avon representative and election poll worker for several years. She was a proud grandmother and cherished the time she could spend with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Some of Bernice’s interests included buying and refinishing antiques, embroidery, needlepoint, gardening, playing cards, and watching the Milwaukee Brewers. She also loved baking, cooking and canning.
