Bernice was born to Orin G. and Nora A. Boyd Oct. 26,
1896, in Richland County, Wis. She was raised a farm
girl and went into nursing during World War I until she became
ill with the 18-Flu. Later she taught school in the old
one-room schools of that day where she had to get to school
early in order to get the stove started so the children could
come into a warm room in the winter and they all walked in
She married Ralph W. Antrim March 28, 1920, and they
farmed in various places in Wisconsin, Illinois and
California. She was hard times of the 1930's and
the dust storms of the Plains. She and her family
traveled over most of the West until 1937 at which time they
homesteaded land west of Homedale in the Ridgeview district of
Oregon. She taught in the Napton and Ridgeview districts
during World War II.
She is survived by a son, Glen Antrim of Nampa; a
daughter, Mildred Hollingsworth of Caldwell; a daughter,
Patricia Weng of Estacada, Ore.; 13 grandchildren; 21
great-grandchildren; nine great-great-grandchildren; and
numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph; her
