Bernice Ceretto


On April 15, 2004, Bernice Ceretto was put to rest to await the Lord's glorious return and reunion with her loving husband, Domenic and beloved daughter, Betty.

Bernice was born May 21, 1915 to James and Lola Hunt in Roth, OK. At an early age she and her family relocated to Oklahoma where she began developing and mastering her skills in raising produce and livestock.These skills were put to good use when Bernice later moved to California and grew many different types of vegetables and fruits, and excelled in canning her crops. These efforts earned her much recognition and many awards.

On March 28, 1938 Bernice married Domenic Ceretto in Stockton, CA. In 1938, their only child, Betty Lee was born. Having a school-aged child presented Bernice with an opportunity to initiate and manage the Food Service Program at Elder Creek School. It was this venue that allowed Bernice to build on her love of children and sharing by participating in the development and growing of the Elder Creek Summer Camp, and numerous field trips around California. She visited and shared many places with "her kids", such as Mt. Tamalpias, the high Sierras, and the coast. Her compassion and patience touched many young hearts. After her retirement, Bernice did not remain idle. She always had a wonderful garden in which she grew tomatoes, and nurtured the spirits of those around her. Bernice made sure no one hungered for food or the Word of God.

Bernice is survived by her sister, Juanita Martin and her extended family of Sacramento, CA; son-in-law, Gerald Lewis of Middletown, CA; grandsons and spouses, John and Heather Lewis of Santa Rosa, CA, James and Dru Lewis of San Andreas, CA, Peter Lewis of Napa, CA, Mark & Tammy Lewis of Yountville, CA; great-grandchildren, Jason, Michael, Kevin, Tiana, Dustin and Matthew Lewis; great-great-grandchild, Samantha Brown-Lewis.

Her sister, Nina; husband, Domenic; and daughter, Betty all preceded her in death.

Services will be held at Sacramento Memorial Lawn Garden on Mon., April 19, 2004 at 2:30 pm.

The list of committees and projects on which he has worked- local, state and national is endless.

Judge Chambers' pride and joy has been the Yell County Free Fair, which due to his organizational and leadership ability, has been recognized as one of the best county fairs in the state. Last year he was honored with "Judge Chambers Day" during the fair.

He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Jim Bill Gatlin of Danville; a son, John Ed Chambers of Danville; five grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
