Ms. Bernice Lee, was born on July 13, 1920 in Bowling Green, Kentucky to the late Mr. and Mrs. Brewer

                  Bernice was united in marriage to Mr. John W. Edwards and to this union two children were born, a son Mr. John McClain (deceased) and a daughter Mrs. Hattie Marie Edwards. 

                                   Bernice  professed her love for Christ at an early age and united with The Church of the Living God under the     pastorate of Rev. Wynn Samuels after moving to Indianapolis,  Indiana.  She served as a Mother in the Church until her health    began to fail her. 

She received her early education in the Kentucky School System and was employed for many years as a cook for the famous “Pa and Ma’s Barbeque” restaurant located on 28th and Rader Street.  She was dependable and committed to whatever she set her hands and mind to do.  She truly enjoyed cooking, sewing and shopping.  Her favorite colors were pink and blue.  Her favorite song was “Precious Lord” and favorite scripture was Psalms 23.  Bernice gave God glory and always rejoiced whenever she heard the Word of God preached or a good Hymn sang. 

After an extended illness, Bernice was called from    labor to reward at the Briarwood Health Center on April 26, 2016 at the age of ninety-five years.

Bernice  will be missed by all who knew and loved her.  She has finished her course and found the rest and peace God promised her.  

Bernice  leaves to mourn her passing a loving daughter, Mrs. Hattie M. Edwards, a grandson, Mr. George W. Abel and other grandchildren; a nephew, Mr. George Martin of Chicago, Illinois; a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Pam McClain, and two special friends, Ms. Janet and Mr. Mitchell, also a host of other relatives and friends.
