Bernice May Dragland

April 8, 1958 ~ August 31, 2022 (age 64)

[DFA# 178.84]

Bernice was born with Down Syndrome, and although life was not without struggles, she taught our family how to love unconditionally, and how to accept all people, with differences.

She learned to read, write, swim, bowl, and enjoyed Special Olympics with her many 'group home' friends. Her favorite craft was rug hooking. Bernice had such a great heart, and always wanted everyone to have her gifts. She passed away peacefully and leaves us with wonderful memories.

Bernice is survived by her sisters, Betty (Manfred), Ellen (Marvin), nieces and nephews; along with her good friend Dennis Sturrock. She was predeceased by her father Ken (1981), mother Mydra (1998), and brother Stan (2022).

We would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Longterm care in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, for the good care she received for the past four years.
