Bernice worked at the Badger Munitions Factory near Sauk City during WWII. She married Leonard Sumwalt on Oct. 16, 1949, in Mooresville, Ind. in a service officiated by Rev. Don Sumwalt. Bernice and Leonard bought a farm 1 mile north of Loyd, later added an adjacent farm, where they lived until 1997. They raised Holsteins, pigs, sheep, chickens, rabbits, vegetables, and four children. Bernice taught Sunday school, sang in the choir, and cooked for many a potluck and banquet at the Loyd (now Willow Valley) United Methodist Church. She loved to bake bread, garden, can vegetables, sing, and read. She valued education, taught songs and nursery rhymes to her children and grandchildren, and was proud her children graduated from college. After Leonard’s death in 1998 Bernice lived in Richland Center; then lived with daughter Ruth for 11 years in Sheboygan, WI.
