MADISON – Berniece E. Post, age 94, passed away peacefully on April 19, 2022, with family by her side. She was born on May 24, 1927 in Madison, WI to parents, Werner and Isabel (Boness) Schou. She married her husband, Vernon, on October 23, 1948.  They lived in Merrill, WI for a few years but returned to Madison in 1963.  She was a proud member of the 40 and 8 American Legion Post 481 and the VFW Post 7591.

Berniece is survived by her daughter, Diane (Bill) Wipperfurth; son, Robert (Theresa) Post; eleven grandchildren; sixteen great-grandchildren and one soon to be. She is further survived by a sister, Leila Clark; and special almost daughters, Holly McCreary and Kathy Hull.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, William; infant son, Joseph; twin sister, Bernadine; and youngest sister, Marcella.

Berniece loved her home and her gazebo.  She enjoyed traveling, trips to the Fireside Theater, and occasional visits to the casino.  But her greatest joy was her family, and the large gatherings at Christmastime were the highlight of the year.  She will be greatly missed.

Memorials may be made to SSM Health Hospice. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at ST. PETER CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5001 N.
