Berniece was such a sweet, selfless, loving wife, mother and grandmother. Family meant everything to her. She married the love of her life, Lawrence Daley raising five children together 55 years before his passing. She loved going to the beach, stopping to pick up deep-fried artichokes on the way, planting/tending her garden, loved to go shopping and most of all having family come home for a visit. Mom was an avid SF Giants fan as well as a big Wheel of Fortune fan! She was usually the first to guess the puzzles! She was a great cook, always baking or cooking one of our family’s many favorite recipes.
She was survived by her daughters, Donna Gularte of Salinas, Kathleen Baseline of Lewiston, ID, and son Michael (Danelle) Daley of Salmon, ID, and numerous nieces and nephews. Berniece was also blessed with 9 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
