Sister Bernice Moore, 86, passed away on January 7th, 2018 at the home of her sister, Catherine (Emile) Jones in San Francisco, CA. She transitioned peacefully, surrounded by her family. She was born on May 6th, 1931 in Eutaw, Alabama to Edward Moore and Velma Smith Wilson.


Bernice grew up in Eutaw, Alabama. After graduating from Carver High School she moved to Belvedere, California. She accepted Christ and joined First Missionary Baptist Church of Marin City. She desired to continue her education and attended City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University.  A lover of fashion, Bernice enjoyed her salesperson role at Gump’s Department store. Upon completing her education, she secured a position in the personnel department at French Hospital in San Francisco. She advanced her career with her role at Lawrence Livermore Labs in Human Resources until her retirement.


She was an active member of First Union Baptist Church for over 40 years where she faithfully served on the Usher Board. Bernice was a fun person to be around - always smiling and never meeting a stranger.  She was committed to helping those less fortunate, often giving her last. She enjoyed shopping and always loved a great sale! She took great comfort in cleanliness, was extremely organized, witty and an avid reader. In 2005, she joined Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church and was a proud member of the May Birthday Club.


Bernice was preceded in death by her mother, Velma Wilson and Step-Father Johnny Wilson; Father, Edward Moore; sister, Ida Postell; brother, Ollice Moore; brother, Willie Moore; aunts, Martha Thompson and Mildred Smith; uncles, Esther Smith, Ollice Thompson and Wade Smith.


Bernice is survived by four sisters Artelia Terrell of San Francisco; Lucille (Miller) Eichelberger of Centennial, Colorado; Catherine (Emile) Jones of San Francisco, Fairy (Jerome) Sorrell of Daly City and three brothers, Eddie Moore of San Francisco; Nathaniel (Mary) Moore and Phillip Moore both of Daly City; two sister-in-laws, Debra Moore and Mary Moore of Daly City; seven nieces and six nephews, great-nephews and nieces and a host of other relatives, friends and the First Union and Macedonia Church Families.


You were a beacon of light, consistent and kind. We love you and miss you dearly.


                   ~Your Loving Family~
