Along the way, Bernadette raised two children and continued to be involved in education, substitute teaching and developing science programs for the Santa Rosa schools. Bernadette loved to travel and did exhaustive work in family genealogy. Also, she participated in water aerobics, and played a role in the Moab Red Hat Society, among her activities over the 25 years in Moab before departing for Texas to be near family in 2017.
