Obituary: Bernadyne Elizabeth York “Bernie”
March 28, 1928 – Jan. 28, 2013
Bernie, passed away peacefully at her son’s home in Gardnerville on January 28, 2013. She was 84.
Bernie was born March 28, 1928 in Philadelphia, PA to parents, Michael and Josephine Dobosh.
After graduating high school, Bernie attended Penn State where she received a degree in advertising. She met her future husband Claude York “Rudy”, while skeet shooting off the stern of a cruise ship.
They married and eventually moved to the west coast and settled in Glendora, CA. They raised three sons and Bernie pursued her passion for antiques by opening an antique store, which she operated for ten years.
After her husband Rudy passed away, Bernie retired and moved to Gardnerville to be closer to her family. She fit right in with the community and would often be seen having lunch at the senior center or shopping for the best bargains at the local stores.
Bernie had a great sense of humor and loved sharing stories of her college days, raising her three sons, and the antique business. She loved her family and always looked forward to family get-togethers.
She will be deeply missed and always remembered.
Bernie is survived by her three sons, Scott (Dolly) York, Bobby York, Jeff (Jody) York; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Rudy; her sister, Rita.
At her request, no funeral services were held.
