Bernice was born on February 22, 1926 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. When she was about 5 years old, the family moved to Winnipeg. At the age of 19 years she met Vic who was in the RCAF. They married on February 23, 1946 in Valleyfield, Quebec. A few months later they moved to Winnipeg, residing mostly in the Charleswood area. Bernice worked at various jobs, mainly as a waitress and retail clerk.

In 1991 they retired to Kelowna, BC., and moved back to Winnipeg permanently in 2015.
