The Capri College staff and students at the Dubuque campus were saddened when we lost one of our greatest supporters and friends. Bernice Schuster, a weekly client of over twenty years, passed away Tuesday, August 11, 2015 in Dubuque.
Every Friday, regular as clockwork, Bernice would arrive with a smile on her face, filled with contagious joy. She was here for her weekly Friday morning appointment, bright and early, ready to get “dolled up!” Capri students loved working on her beautiful white hair, which looked like a ‘fluffy halo!’ She was so easy to please, students said, and she never complained! An inductee in the 4 H Hall of Fame in 2011, Bernice’s love of her family highlighted her conversations while she recounted loving, amusing tales of her family’s ‘high jinks!’ Easy to please, fun to talk with and always happy- that was Bernice Schuster, loyal Capri client and adopted member of the Capri Family.
Farewell, Old Friend. Your Capri Family will miss you!
