Following the War, and the return of the soldiers to the work force, Bernice moved back into the offices finishing her 40 year career with General Motors as an executive assistant. Bernice moved from Saginaw to Midland and in 2000 she moved to Prudenville. She was an active artist, enjoyed knitting, and in her younger years was an avid bowler and golfer.
