Bernice Hall, a lifelong resident of New York, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, October 27, 2019. Bernice, the oldest daughter of the late Austin and Rosa Lee James, was born on January 14, 1949 in White Plains, NY.

Bernice married her loving husband, David Hall Sr. on September 13, 1969. They moved to Mount Vernon shortly after and began their family. They shared 50 years of marriage and raised their three wonderful children, Tracey, David, and Tamisha.

Bernice was educated in the White Plains Public School System. She was employed as a Packer at Saks Fifth Avenue in 1980. After retiring, she began working in childcare at the Early Learning Daycare Center. Bernice particularly enjoyed working with children. Throughout her life, she helped to guide and support many children in her neighborhood, family, and church. In her later years, Bernice finally enjoyed her retirement, spending her days reading, cooking, watching her favorite tv shows or traveling with her family.

Bernice joined the Greater Eternal Light Church in 1989, was baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. She was a prayer warrior, and through her prayers and faith in God she led many of her family members and friends to Christ. Bernice was a loyal, faithful Missionary at GELC and was known to reach out to various members to offer encouraging words and prayers.

Bernice is predeceased by both her parents and her sisters, Esther and Rosemary James.

She leaves to cherish her memory her husband David Hall Sr., 2 brothers: Marshall James of Dorchester, MA and Austin James Jr. (Wanda) of Fredericksburg, VA; her children: Tracey Brumfield of Chicago, IL; David Jr. (Sharon) and Tamisha Grey (Thomas) of Mt. Vernon, NY; 2 grandchildren: Timothy Ackerman and Dashjliea Hall; 3 great-grandchildren: Khaleem Stevenson, Tia Ackerman, and Khelys Stevenson; and a host of extended family and friends.
