Bernice Antrim

     Bernice Georgie Antrim, 93, of Nampa, died Monday, Aug. 6, 1990, at the Village Convalescent Center at Gresham, Ore., of natural causes.
     Graveside funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 9, at the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.  The Rev. Allen Nelson will officiate with the help of Estacada Funeral Chapel.
     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 those days.
     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 parents; a brother, Fred Boyd; a sister, Mary Hewitt of Madison, Wis.; and a daughter-in-law, Velma Antrim of Nampa.
