August 20, 1931 — March 16, 2023

Bernarda M. Hernandez, 91, entered eternal rest Thursday, March 16, 2023, at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance in Edinburg.
Our beloved mother/grandmother Bernarda (Nina) was a selfless woman, a woman of great faith and the matriarch of our family who always placed God and family first. She was a humble, wise, and hard-working woman who loved to be with family, especially during the holidays. She was the embodiment of love. You could feel that love being in the same room with her. She once said that the life of a woman was a life of great sacrifice, and she was a true example of that.
