“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” Isaiah 66:13


March 1, 1941, fell on a Saturday in the small farming community of Bonita, Louisiana.  Most folks around Bonita looked forward to a day of rest, church the following day, and then back to work on Monday.  But this Saturday would be a very special one for Rufus and Bessie Burrell Minnieweather. On this first Saturday, they were blessed with a girl child. They named her Bernice.  On December 1, 2023, Bernice Minnieweather, as so many loved ones before her, joined that throng of family and friends, and went home to be with God.  She was 82.

Ms. Bernice, “Big Ma,” (as she was fondly called), loved spending time with her family.     She also LOVED collecting money. She had two favorite foods, fish and barbecue. When she had spare time, she loved to go fishing.  If asked, what was her favorite color, she would say, "pink."

She’s leaves to cherish her memories:  eight children. Hosea (Louise), Linda (Willie Jr), Christy, Malcolm (Kelli), Barbara, Marilyn, Vanessa, (John), and her baby girl, Vickie, all of Bastrop, LA.
