She has found peace and is now with her father Al and “Bestie” Colleen. Bernadette will be dearly missed by her best friend and Husband Lonnie, sons Daniel (Cassie) and Michael (Justine). Very special Nana to Taylor, Gabrielle, Declan, Norah, Jack, and a sixth grandchild on the way. Predecesed by her Father Alan Savage.

Bernadette worked for the St. Clair Catholic District School Board as a Secretary for several years where she developed many fantastic relationships with staff, parents and students. She will be missed and remembered by lots. She was an inspiration to many people, and is loved and adored by all of her family and friends.
