Obituary for Bernice C. Davis

STERLING – Bernice (Bernie) Davis, 87, formerly of Sterling, passed away Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Pierce Memorial Baptist Home in Brooklyn. She was the wife of the late Arthur H. Davis.

Bernie’s pride and joy was being a housewife, mother and grandmother. She was also a versatile volunteer to many other people. Bernie was active in Sterling’s PTA, served on the Sterling Board of Education for twelve years, and was the first Welfare Director for Sterling. She served on The Board of Directors of EASTCONN, and belonged to the Salvation Army, giving lots of kids from Sterling the opportunity to go to camp. One of her most important volunteer projects was with a regional health program, “Community Health and Home Care”. Bernie traces her enthusiasm for volunteer work to her upbringing, and the support from her husband Arthur. One of Bernie’s quotes: “I like to help people out in quiet or anonymous ways. I don’t like a lot of attention.” Bernie was very active in the churches she belonged to, and her life was enriched by her volunteerism in the community for any person.

Bernie is survived by her children, Kenneth A. Davis and wife Martha of Lebanon, CT, Gregory P. Davis and wife Roberta of Sterling, CT and Robert Davis; brother Richard Cooper and wife Shirley of Torrington, CT, ten grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. at The Cornerstone Baptist Church, Danielson. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. Calling hours will be held in Tillinghast Funeral Home, 433 Main Street, Danielson on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 5:00 – 8:00 P.M. In lieu of flowers donations in Bernice’s name may be made to The Cornerstone Baptist Church, 247 Broad, Street, Danielson, CT 06239.
