Bernice, being the single mother of two met and married Lawrence Hicks Jr. in 1951. From this union nine children were born. She relocated to Baltimore, MD where she continued to raise her family.

Bernice was an avid lover of her family. She was fun, witty, and caring. Bernice, being a lover of nature, loved the sun and being outside. Cooking meals for her family, brought her great joy, and "boy could she burn". Selfless in her nature, she would s hare a meal with anyone who needed it. Her door was always open and she made everyone feel welcome.

Some of her favorite hobbies included putting puzzles together, sewing and knitting while sitting by the window reflecting on the great things God had done for her. Bernice returned to Calvert County on September 11, 2015, where she resided with her daughter, Gloria in Prince Frederick, MD until her passing.

She was a very strong, independent, caring woman whom held her faith dear to her despite her illness. She will be sorely missed. Bernice was preceded in death by two sons Charles and Eric Hicks, three brothers, Floyd Height, Monzel White, and Joe Lee Nelson and one sister, Ruby Murray.
