Bernadine married Harold Law on November 2, 1940 in Newburg, New York. After living in several states, they moved to Longmont in 1964. In the early 1970’s, they built a cabin with the help of their family (west of Lyons, CO) and lived there fifteen years. They lived with kerosene lamps and candles. Electricity was provided by a generator when needed. They didn’t have phone service.
In 1987, they moved to Estes Park, Colorado. Bernadine was involved in activities at the Senior Center (enjoyed playing pool). She was a charter member of Rocky Mountain Church of Estes Park and participated in activities with Christian Woman’s Club. Her faith in God was a big part of her life. Bernadine loved all outdoor activities in the mountains, especially with her family. She was a big fan of the Rockies baseball team and went to several games. Bernadine moved to Longmont in 2012. She continued playing pool and was active in social gatherings.
