From this union, they had five children: Chrisella, Dennis, Roxeda, Lucinda, and Brenda; seven grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.

Berniece was a secretary serving many businesses in Hastings and most recently at Federal Land Bank, Heritage Title Company, and Adams County District Court. She was a long-time member of Zion Lutheran Church, Zion Auxiliary, Zion Lutheran Church Memorial Foundation, EX-POW, and volunteered at Mary Lanning Healthcare.
