Bernice Marie Pinchback was the first of four children born to Palace and Lois Whitis Pinchback on March 28, 1918 in Lockhart, Texas.

She accepted Christ at an early age uniting with St. Marks United Methodist Church where she remained a faithful and dedicated servant of God.

Bernice was educated in the Lockhart School System. She was one of the first students to attend and graduate from Lockhart Vocational High School and was an active member of the historic Lockhart Vocational High School Alumni Association.

Bernice was united in holy matrimony to Fred Thornton. Although Bernice born no children, she was a loving mother figure to her many nieces and nephews.

She was employed for many years by the Wells who considered Bernice family. She was instrumental in the rearing of the children, Philip, Malinda and Kim.

She was passionate about her membership in TOPS where she maintained her weight with healthy eating habits, fun and many lasting friendships.

Bernice was preceded in death by her parents, husband and sisters Callie P. Boyd and Ollie P. Sayles.

Bernice leaves to cherish loving memories her only brother Joe Pinchback; sister-in-law Bernice Pinchback; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
