Dearest Bernice I thought of you often, missing you from the opposite coast- our visits and teas next door on Ross road, lots of laughs and hugs. I feel blessed to have known you. I am so very sad I will not see you again. You were the best kind of person. My heart goes out to all of your relatives who loved you so much. We were always warmed hearing of how cherished and cared for you were. Love you forever.

To all the family, and all the friends.

All the best and warmest thoughts to each of you in this hard time, made harder still with the passing of a wonderful, warm, and memorable woman.

Though it has been many years since I had the pleasure of her company, I am saddened by her passing and my heart is with you all.

She is Missed.

So sorry to hear of Bernice’s passing. I have know her for over 25 years on her visits to Dr. Joshi’s office. She was always such a pleasant lad, I am sure she will be missed.

Aunt Bernice – we’ll miss you so much.
When she and Uncle Frank lived on Ross Road. we always had room and board while visiting St John’s.
They loved to pamper the younger generation – it
could be a turkey dinner in mid-summer with ‘lemon
snow’ for dessert.
-and about the cherry cakes and Christmas puddings
(whether we lived in NB,NS,Alberta or Manitoba)
-they always arrived on time for Xmas dinner
Rest in peace

Prayers and thoughts are with the family.
I first bet Bunny when she played cards with my grandmother Mer Field many years ago.
Then I moved into the neighborhood on Taylor Place , my children delivered the Telegram to her. She was a beautiful kind lady.

We are so sorry to hear of Mrs Bartlett’s passing.She was such a kind, hard working person. She helped me get my first summer job and was always so good to me when we visited her and Mr Bartlett.
She will certainly be fondly remembered.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Win and Frank,Laura and Becci and all of Aunt Bernice’s family and friends..

Mrs.Bartlett as she will always be known to me as was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. Growing up on Ross Road she was a dear family friend living next to my Great Aunt Phyllis and Great Uncle George. When I was younger I used to deliver the Newfoundland Herald around the neighborhood and every week could count on her to invite me in for a snack, chat, and a little tip left in the envelope she would give me. During the winters when it would snow I would make the walk up the hill and shovel her driveway and walkway. She would always give me good money for this and thinking back definitely gave way more than was deserved for the job I did hahaha. I have very fond memories of Mrs.Bartlett that I will cherish. My heart breaks hearing of her passing.

Condolences to the family and may she Rest In Peace.

Bernice was my Moms roomate at Glenbrook Lodge and I enjoyed getting to know her these past few months. She was such a sweet lady and spunky too! She always made me laugh. I will miss her. My thoughts are with her family and loved ones. Rest peacefully Bernice

To the relatives of Bernice.
I got to know Bernice at Glenbrook Lodge over the past year. She was always happy when I came in to visit my husband and brought in my gardening tools. She would join me every time she could to weed and clean up the beds in the brookside garden, she was a joy, she loved the garden and watched from her window when the weather was too cold.
She was a lovely lady and I shall miss chatting with her. God Bless.
Wendy Mercer

RIP Mrs Bartlett,

It was nice to get to know you for a short while, as I did my work term at glen brook

May you rest in paradise my condolences to your family

My condolences to Bernice’s family. What a wonderful lady we sat across from each other at St . Augustine’s church for years and got to be friends. She was such a comfort to me when my mom was ill and I looked forward to her kind words every Sunday. Shirley &Bill Fennemore

A wonderful person and a wonderful friend of my mother. Many fond memories of her and her husband Frank coming by either for a cup of tea in the afternoon or for Dinner. Always had a smile on her face and a story to tell. She has a special place in my memory. God bless, Mrs. B. you shall certainly be missed.

My sincere condolences to Mrs Bartlett’s family and friends on her passing. I’m sure your hearts are broken with this loss. My thoughts are with you.

Mrs Bartlett was a dear friend and a longtime card club member with my mom (Violet McDonald), June , Phyllis, Eileen ,and Ruth, a force to be reckoned with but great fun!! I even got to fill in for someone on times they couldn’t make it and boy did I learn from the best!!

I’m so happy Mrs Bartlett got to live a beautiful long life, and I hope she got to play cards at Glennbrooke Lodge. Mrs Bartlett loved to entertain and brought out her best China for club at her house!! I was young but I remember it so well. We lived on Ayre Place and I’d often stop over to see her and Mr. Bartlett on Ross Road. She was always dressed elegantly and smiled with her heart. She gave the best hugs too!

My mom would likely be greeting her as she arrived in heaven and if there are cards in heaven, they are likely having a game!!

RIP Mrs Bartlett, fly high with the angels and into the arms of the people gone before you. You will forever have a special place in my childhood memories and my heart. 💕
Love, Regina
