For many years, she sang and played guitar in the contemporary choir at St. Malachy Catholic Church. She worked for American Bridge Company for 41 years and was a lifelong member of Girl Scouts. She was an inspirational troop leader, energetic band parent, and dedicated volunteer for her daughter’s high school theatre program. Bernie deeply enjoyed being outdoors, spending many years skiing and golfing with her husband and daughter. She loved animals and was the world’s best hugger. Beloved wife of Michael J. Panzo, Jr. for 49 years; loving mother to Tara Nobles (Barr) of Savannah, Georgia; proud grandmother to three granddogs; sister of Barbara (Jerome) Braidić, Albert (Ellen) Bialek, Connie (Eugene) Uhl; sister-in-law of Judi Siler; and aunt to numerous nieces and nephews.

I just found out about Bernie's passing. I worked with her at American Bridge and also at Kennywood for Polish Day. She was a kind and loving individual who always had a hug and a smile. She left this life too soon. Rest in peace dear lady. You were SPECIAL to all who knew you.
