Bernice H. Scheer, 91, an East Wenatchee, WA resident for over 20 years, passed away on Monday, December 23, 2013, at her home with her family at her side. She was born on May 27, 1922, at Milwaukee, WI, where she was raised and graduated from high school. She met and married to Richard Czerniak in Milwaukee, and together they had four children. Growing up, her mom, Laura, would take her into the TV and Radio Repair shop, where she first was introduced to Carl Scheer. They later married in 1959. They made their home together, along with her four children, in German Town, WI. In 1994, Carl and Bernice moved to East Wenatchee. They were married 44 years. Carl passed away on April 13, 2003. She had since remained in East Wenatchee. In her younger days, she was a singer in a western band. Bernice especially enjoyed art and was an accomplished artist and created many “beautiful” oil paintings. She was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in East Wenatchee and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary.

She was preceded in death by her parents; step-father, George Schults; husband, Carl Scheer; son, Richard “Dicky” Czerniak; brother, Rolen Carmedy; and great-granddaughter, Brittney Mosher. She is survived by her daughters, Helen (Gill) Bates of Milwaukee, WI, Carol (Gene) White of East Wenatchee, and Sharon McCarter of Cashmere; 15 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren; and 23 great-great-grandchildren.
