Bernice Daniels passed away peacefully at Hospice Austin's Christopher House on October 24, 2011. Her Mother, Father and Brother precede her in death. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Melvin, along with two daughters Linda and Anglo (Angie) Daniels and one son Melvin Edward Daniels (Kellie) of Boston, Massachusetts and blessed with one granddaughter (her heart) Dominique Alford, also her Sister Edith Smith and her family from South Carolina and a host of other relatives and friends.

Bernice was born in Sumter, South Carolina on November 10, 1942. She gave her life to Christ at the age of 12 when she joined the Second Presbyterian Church of Sumter. She attended Sumter High School finishing in 1961. While still attending high school in 1960, Bernice met Melvin Daniels who was stationed at Shaw A.F.B. South Carolina and they married in September 1962. A dedicated military wife, she traveled with him to many in state and overseas military bases. Her first overseas location was at Clark A.B. Philippines and her last overseas location was Aviano A. B. Italy and on to Beale AFB California and from Beale to Bergstrom AFB, Texas where she and her husband retired from the military after 28 years and 10 months.

Bernice was a warm, kindhearted, loving person who loved her family, especially her only Granddaughter. She made many sacrifices during the early part of her marriage to ensure that her family had what they needed. She was a true military wife who stood by her military husband through their many travels having to pack-up and leave a home that she had made warm and welcoming to all that came by.

She gave from her heart to many charitable organizations. She worked many years in school districts, first at Marysville, California ISD for about 8 years and for the Austin Independent School District at Pleasant Hill and the St. Elmo elementary schools for another 12 years.

She first attended the St. James Missionary Baptist Church and has attended there since 1991. Her Husband was attending another church at that time, but soon followed her so that her family could attend the same church together.



Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14

For god so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, that whosover believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

To the family of Sister Bernice Daniels, Brothr Melvin Daniels, and the entire family.

WHEARAS, We, the Pastor, Officers, and Members of the St. James Missionary Baptist Church wish to extend to you our deepest heartfelt sympathy during your time of sorrow in the loss of your loved one. We especially want to offer our condolences to Brother Melvin Daniels, who is an active member of the St. James Baptist Church.

Naturally, your hearts are filled with sorrow, and the tears will flow when loved ones are taken from us, but we should be still in our grief long enough to think what this home going means. It means that toils and burden-bearing are exchanges for the restfulness of heaven. Instead of being cast down by sadness, we should rejoice and thank God for a life which leaves behind it a radiance of purity, goodness and peace.

WHEARAS, We commend you into the hand of him who is able to comfort and heal your broken heart. In time like these, we must search the scriptures. Everything we need is in the Word of God. He promised in his Holy Word to never leave us nor forsake us. He told us to caast all of our cares upon hiim for he cars for us. He has chosen to call your loved one from this earthly life where suffering and pain do not exist.

WHEREAS, God in His infinite goodness and wisdom has removed from your midst Sister Bernice Daniels, we say to the family, look to the hills whence cometh your help. Your help comes from the Lord. He is the giver of comfort and peace in our times of need.

THEREFORE, bereaved family, think of the happiness your loved one is experiencing right now with Jesus. Our tears are a God given outlet for sorrow, weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Death may steal from us the ones we love, but for the followers of Christ the separation is only temporary. The resurrection of Jesus assures us that just as death culd not hold Him, so too the tomb cannot cling to the children, parents, friends, and companions who have died before us. Christ's ressurection is the foundation of our hope.

BE IT ALSO RESOLVED, that our church family expresses deep sympathy we feel personally and collectively to the bereaved family and we hope in some way these few inadequate words may bring you comfort and remember that everything works together for the food of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.

Prayerfully submitted,
St. James Missionary Baptist Church
Dr. B. W. McClendon, Pastor
