Obituary

Bernice Virginia Durr was born on December 18, 1926 to the late William S. and Bessie L. Chambers in Quinnimont, West Virginia. At a very early age she accepted Christ as her savior. Her parents had eventually relocated to Pittsburgh, Pa, and as a teen, her love of singing lead her join the Pittsburgh Junior Quartet lead by her Aunt Hester Lee. Her parents eventually divorced, and once more the family relocated to Mizpah, NJ where she met the love of her life.

In 1950 she married JD Durr, who proceeded her in death, and began starting a family. From the union were seven children, Jay, who proceeded her in death, Dracey, Denise, Lolita, Charylene, Chichita, who proceeded her in death, and Darryl.

Bernice was a long time employee at Wheaton Plastic in Mays Landing, until her retirement 38 years ago. The newly found "lady of leisure" enjoyed traveling to visit family, snapping pictures with her Polaroid camera, singing gospel music, and don't forget about watching her Soap Operas, and Oprah Winfrey. Bernice was a fashionista in her own right, and until recent years, Bernice would never wear pants or slacks, only skirts or dresses. When asked why, she would recall the one time she wore pants to go roller-skating and she fell; and pants for her was out. She was a vigorous shopper, especially when it came to QVC infomercials and catalogs. Anything you ever wanted, or didn't, Bernice had it!

Bernice cared for her ailing husband for many years until his death, along with caring for her daughter Denise, and her grandson Patrick while he was a baby. In her final years, she stayed with her daughters Lolita, and Charylene, until she peacefully passed listening to one of her favorite gospel hymns.

She leaves to cherish her loving memory, her five children, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Now she can "Have a little talk with Jesus" like she always sang about, and forever be at peace.
