When Colette and I were just beginning to become friends, I remember my brother and I being invited over to Bernadette’s house to play. It was such a fun night just watching movies, eating candy canes, and eating hard-shelled tacos for my first time! They were so good that my brother and I begged our parents to make it the next day for dinner! Bernadette was such a great host, and I remember that every time I would see her I couldn’t help but smile so big. She was so kind and loving, and I am so grateful to have known such a wonderful woman. No wonder Colette and her mom are such hilarious and fun people. :)

Sending you all our love and thoughts from Belfast. We were so sad when we heard about Aunt Bernie’s passing. Although you are all far away we have some amazing memories. Aunt Bernie was a strong and generous and kind person. She was so much fun as well, and always had a twinkle in her eye! She will be much missed by all of you, her nearest and dearest, but she is the last one of the McGreevy siblings so it’s the end of an era…. Let’s hope they’re all together somewhere xxx with love from Auntl Kathleen, Sonia, Lesley, Seaneen and Ciaran.

My earliest memory of Bernadette was meeting her in Rasharkin along with Danny. She was a beautiful lady and it easy to see they were meant for each other. She had a great sense of humour which remained with her throughout her life. It was an honour to have known her. May she rest in peace.

Hello Marie, ‘Little Bern’, Noreen, Susan, Robert and families, The Scanlon family (Anne Marie, Teresa, Danny and Eileen) would like to offer our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your TRULY AMAZING mother, lovely ‘Big Bern!’ She certainly was an extraordinary person, so kind and generous and fun, as was your lovely Dad. To us, as a first-generation American family growing up in Elmhurst, Queens with no relatives in the U.S., Big Bern and Danny were our honorary ‘Aunt and Uncle’, and each of you were our honorary ‘cousins’. We were thrilled and couldn’t have asked for a better extended family. We have many wonderful memories of your lovely Mom; here are just a random few: *Back in the 1960’s through 80’s, Big Bern and Danny were my parents only true adult friends, and my parents absolutely adored them. They felt a very special bond since they had all emigrated from Ireland, and were both just starting young families in the U.S. *Your Mom would make special Brandy Alexander cocktails for her and my mom to celebrate the New Year, and the “two Dan’s” would enjoy a few Schaeffer or Budweiser beers whilst enjoying watching baseball together…they loved the Mets! *I remember my mother crying when your family decided to move to Valley Stream. But your Mom reassured her that the families would still get together often, and she certainly stayed true to her word…. even having us over for an extraordinary feast every Thanksgiving……AFTER Big Bern had been out working all day! *In 1972 when I was eight years old, your parents threw a surprise First Communion Party for me (Anne Marie) at your Valley Stream home, and it was amazing. That night was also my first sleepover experience ever. I will never forget how I brushed my teeth with what I thought was toothpaste until your Mom told me that I had accidentally used your Dad’s brill cream to brush my teeth. Being the anxious kid that I was, I proceeded to jump up and down and scream incessantly, “Am I going to die???” I’m sure I drove your poor Mom crazy that night, and she probably was counting the minutes until I was set to be picked up the following morning. *Teresa remembers how she and ‘Little Bern’ got stuck way out on the water in a foot-paddle boat at Flushing Meadows Park, and how your Mom kept laughing and calling over to them to come in so they wouldn’t get charged extra. *We remember our parent’s babysitting both families’ kids when Big Bern went in the hospital to deliver ‘the twins’. We remember your Mom’s beautiful voice and sparkling eyes, and her wonderful laugh and great sense of humor. We hope these memories have brought a smile to your faces and a realization of how much your Mom and the entire Dalrymple family have meant to us over the years. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. All our love to each of you, Anne Marie, Teresa, Danny, and Eileen Scanlon

In all the years I knew my grandma, I don’t think she ever said a serious word to me. She was a quick thinker with a wicked sense of humor and a dry tone that could make you believe any of her ridiculous stories. For most of my childhood, I believed she was 29 years old. Eventually I realized that was impossible and so was happy she let me in on the truth- she was actually 116. Grandma was the wittiest of us all by far, but anyone who’s ever been stuck in the same room with two or more of her children or grandchildren can tell you that her unfailing dedication to jokes and pranks will live on long after her. What I will miss the most about Grandma is all that I never got the chance to learn from her. Over the past year, she told me, little by little and over a series of phone calls, the story of how she came to America. There was so much to that story I never knew and I’d imagine even more I still don’t know. And yet, I am still more grateful for all the things she did teach me: how to execute a punchline; every lyric to The Irish Rovers’ version of The Unicorn Song; the right way to check if everyone’s seat belts are on (“check, check, checkers!”); and very nearly how to make her famous potato bread. As any of her American family will tell you, the world is not the same without Grandma’s potato bread- I feel lucky to have gotten to eat as much of it as I did.

We lost a very special woman. A beautiful, kind, smart, witty and silly woman; My grandma. She is at peace now with Grand dad, her family and especially with my cousin, Danielle. When my brother and were much younger, we had the privilege of living with her. She took care of us and kept us safe. She took us for walks to see the swans by the canal and had a name for each one. She sang to us at night and taught us every prayer in the book. Im remembering all the stories she used to tell us while making her famous potato bread. Stories of how she had magic powers from the high witches. I of course would shout to my brother "Don't believe her!", but I was wrong. My grandma did have powers. She protected us from the pain of our youth and taught us to have faith in ourselves and in god. VWhen we were around her at the kitchen table, grandma always had apples cut up for us. would take the seeds out of them and we put them in little bags, labeled them and told each other we would plant them one day.. still have them all. never forget our long talks on the phone. You gave me strength during those talks. I wish we had more time. I love you always and will miss you forever.

The last time Bernie was in Ireland she called with us. We live in the countryside, very close to the farmhouse where she was placed during the war. She had broken her leg so we drove her to see the farmhouse. I always think of her when I drive past there. Your mum was a very interesting lady, told me things about the family I never knew, She was very funny and great company. She will be sadly missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.
