Bernice (Bernadina) Pahl (nee Folk)
Loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on Feb. 5th in Mission, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Henry of 52 years and her nine siblings. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Gail (Ken), son Gary (Kelly), grandchildren, Robyn (Michael), Edie (Clint), Darci, (Tom) Dustin and Kurtis and her great-grandchildren, Ashley, Steven, Hailey, Emma, Luella and Lincoln, along with many loving family members and friends.
At 90 years of age, Mom has had an amazing life, she was born in Holfast, Saskatchewan in 1920, the youngest of 10. She spent 15 years in a TB Sanatorium, where she learned her nursing skills and began her long career of caring for others. She met Henry while still in the hospital and soon they were married and moved to Lipton, Sask. They had Gail in 1950, moved to Vancouver and had their son Gary in 1952. They purchased a farm in Dewdney in 1963 and stayed in Mission, near their children and grandchildren the rest of their lives.
She was the sweetest, cookie making, hugging, church loving, dedicated mother and grandma anyone could ever wish for. Our deep thanks to Dr. Johnson and the staff of The Worthington Pavilion and Mission Memorial Hospital for their care and understanding. Funeral Mass will be at Mission’s St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Saturday Feb. 12th, at 10:30am. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the B.C. & Yukon Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
