    Donna, Lynn, Mike and families, so very sorry to hear the news about your mom. It is always sad to lose another of our Providence Chapel family. Many many good memories about the chicken dinners, the ice cream socials, our church potlucks and your mom was always a big part of that. Sending hugs to you all.

    So sorry to hear of Bernita’s passing. We got to know her as she showed great kindness to my mother-in-law, Ruth Harding, when she moved into Courtyard. She was such a blessing, including her in activities and making sure she went to meals on time.

    Such wonderful memories! Our families shared so many great times. Need to express for my mom, Shirley Ingold, what a true, dear friend Berneta was. We, too, will miss her. Trusting that God will comfort you, and may you feel His peace.
