Nicpon, Bernadine Ann (3 April 1956 - 13 March 2022)
Beloved sister, ciocia (aunt), and friend to many, Bernadine Ann Nicpon born April 3, 1956, died peacefully in the Lord having received her final sacraments on March 13, 2022, surrounded by her devoted siblings; Geralyn (Nicpon) Coutts, Gerard Nicpon, Joan (Nicpon) Buraglio, Jerome Nicpon, and two dear nieces, Megan (Coutts) Self and Katie Buraglio. She is also survived by other cherished family; brothers-in-law: James Coutts and Greg Buraglio; nephews: Preston Coutts and his wife Elizabeth (Liz), and Major Ian Coutts and his wife Maria (Manya); nephew-in-law: Charles Self (Chaz); great nephews: Otik Self, Oscoda Self, Xasion Self, and sweet great niece: Matilda Coutts; as well as many deeply loved cousins.
Bernadine is preceded in death by her father Stanley, and mother Stella.
She attended Lublin Elementary School and graduated from Gilman High School, where she was active in yearbook, forensics, student council, National Honor Society, and sports. Bernadine set and held the long-time school record in the shot put. After graduation, she studied nursing at St. Joseph's School of Nursing and upon graduating, the young R.N. started work at the Medford Memorial Hospital Extended Care Unit. She loved her patients, passing up several promotions in order to give personal loving care to those in their twilight years.
Bernadine retired after 39 years and enjoyed faith, family, farming, and those she met along life's journey. She had a plethora of friends, neighbors, and former co-workers.
Having grown up on the family farm, Bernadine returned to the farm after nurses training, and resided there until her death.
She loved the life: gardening, cooking, crafts (such as knitting and crocheting), and taking care of her precious farm animals and wild birds (which she hand-fed!), but especially enjoyed her loyal collie, Simion. Bernadine was also an avid reader and a fan of Star Trek and Little House on The Prairie. She, a Third Order Franciscan, was generous to a fault, kind-hearted, and saw the good and believed the best in everyone. She will be sorely missed.
