Bernice graduated from Wicomico High School with the class of 1951 and not long after married her high school sweetheart, Bob Dill. She worked many years in her younger days as a switchboard operator at Sunshine Laundry in Salisbury and Berlin. Her affection for home decorating led her to work for several years at The Country House in Salisbury, a job she truly loved. She retired from Delaware Technical and Community College as a night-time receptionist. She was an active, lifetime member of Melson United Methodist Church in Delmar and will be missed sorely in the Melson’s community. Playing cards, watching the O’s and cooking were some of her favorite activities. In addition to her infectious smile, she will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend to many.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her first husband and father of their children, Robert “Bob” Joseph Dill (1971); her second husband, Brooks Hearn (2006); a sister, Ruth Bailey; and a brother, Calvin Elliott.
