Obituary for Nancy Fay Bernhardt

Nancy Fay Bernhardt, 87, of Rochester, formerly of Darien Center, passed from this life with all its troubles on to her eternal reward in Heaven, free from all pain and sorrow on January 29, 2019. She was born to the late Edward and Ada Dorfer on April 16, 1931 and grew in Kenmore, NY. In addition to her parents, Nancy is predeceased by her husband; Donald Bernhardt; and her sister Una.

Nancy married Donald Bernhardt on November 21, 1951. After Don completed his service with the Air Force, they settled down on a 170 acre property in Darien Center, where countless fond memories were made there by their children and grandchildren, as well as extended family members attending reunions, and neighborhood children enjoying swimming and ice skating parties. Nancy, Don, and their children were former members of Attica First Baptist Church, where Nancy was actively involved in the AWANA program for children, and also in the choir. She truly was a Godly woman who loved the Lord and always had a desire to lead children to Him.

Survivors include her children; Karen (Roger) Kuntz, Mark (Christine Smith) Bernhardt, Rebecca (Edward) Mills, Paul (Ellen Goodridge) Bernhardt and Laurie (Hermann) Weber. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
