Bernice M. Haney

Bernice Monroe Haney, 103, passed away on Monday, Feb. 10, 2014.

Born at her parent's home in the Holly Corner area of Hartwood and a lifelong resident of the Fredericksburg area, Mrs. Haney was predeceased by her parents, Easom Monroe and Elizabeth Harding Monroe; her husband, Glenroy "Jimmie" Haney; and her sisters, Muriel Gallahan and Dorothy Aydlotte.

Mrs. Haney was a traditional homemaker, which included caring for her aging parents and in-laws before the phrase "elder care" was invented. She was the oldest living member of Fredericksburg Baptist Church, where before growing old she was a member of the Fidelis Sunday school class and a decades-long caretaker of infants in the church nursery.

She is survived by two sons, G.M. "Jim" Haney and his wife, Earline, of Fredericksburg, and Jerry E. Haney and his wife, Judy, of King George; Jim's children, Beverly Haney and her spouse, Donna, and Matt Haney, and their mother Jacqueline Haney, all of Fredericksburg; Jerry's children, Jennifer de la Calzada and her husband Craig, of Stafford County, and Jeffrey Haney of Oregon, and their mother, Madelyn Wagner of Stafford; and Judy's children, Lisa Elmore and her husband, Danny, and Brian Thomas of South Carolina; and several great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by a brother, George Monroe and his wife, Mitzi, of Georgia; two sisters, Kathryn Mabe of Maryland and Joyce Bullock of Fredericksburg; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 14, at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at Fredericksburg Baptist Church. Burial will be private.
