Bernice Quill Bailey was born on January 18, 1918 to the late Mack Quill and Arie Rice Quill. Her formal education was received from the Calvert County public school system.

Bernice was the mother of 2 sons, Jimmy Bailey and Adam Bailey, both preceded her in death.

Bernice was a steadfast and diligent worker, holding two notable occupations; as a domestic worker and she worked in a restaurant for a period of time.

Later in Bernice's life, she moved to Calvert County, Maryland with her cousin, Willa Mae Plater. While living with Sister Plater, Bernice became a faithful member of the Bethel Way of the Cross Church, under the leadership of Bishop Jacob A. Green. She was baptized in the name of Jesus and rejoiced in the God of her salvation. She truly enjoyed coming to the house of the Lord, she would clap her hands and praise God passionately. Bernice loved singing and playing the piano and she loved going shopping and visiting other churches with Sister Plater. Also, she loved hearing Pastor Darnell preach and sing. She would always say that Pastor can really preach.

Bernice lived with Sister Plater for 15 years, until her health declined. She then moved to the Calvert County Nursing Center, in Prince Frederick, Maryland. While there she would often ask about Pastor Darnell. Also, she had a special cousin, David Robertson, who always sent her birthday cards and money on special occasions.
