They lived in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Panama Canal Zone, US Naval Bases at Great Lakes, Illinois and Huntsville, AL. The family moved to Florida in 1961 when her husband retired from the U.S. Navy.

Bernadine worked as a secretary at Patrick Air Force Base until her retirement in January 1988.  She was preceded in death by her husband and her son.

Bernie loved to travel with bus tours and cruises. She often visited her sister and brothers in Philadelphia.  She had five siblings who preceded her in death. Her sisters: Anna Lowry, Elizabeth Strain, Grace Strain and Delores Cadden; and brother, James Strain.

She is survived by her grandchildren: Natalie, Ryan and Galen Jones, and six great grandchildren. She was also cared for by her ex-daughter-in-law, Anne Miers and Anne’s husband Randy.
