One of the sweetest ladies I have known. She was such an inspiration to me in my younger years. So blessed to have had her as a friend.
My deepest sympathy to the Weiler family. What I remember most about Berneta is working with her in the grade school cafeteria . She was a blast and so caring. Later in life I attended the same church with her. Anyways such a kind and caring special lady. I sure have missed and will miss that opportunity to visit her. Rest in peace Berneta ❤
