Bernice S. Brill, 99, died on August 25, 2020. A life-long resident of Louisville, Bernice was born on October 24, 1920 to the late Herman and Hannah Sandler. Bernice was a member of The Temple, Women of Reform Judaism-Louisville Chapter, and Hadassah. She enjoyed playing mahjong and card games with her extensive network of friends.
Bernice was also preceded in death by her husband Irvin D. Brill, her son Jeffery Alan Brill and her sister, Pauline Gurwitch.
Her surviving daughter, Penny Brill, in a lovely tribute, recalls:
“I know everyone believes his/her mother is the best. But I truly think that honor goes to my mom, Bernice Brill. As I think back over the years, I think about how we laughed together, cried together, shopped together, and how much she did for me and how much I love her. At almost 100 years old she still showed me the way. One of the fondest memories is going downtown to shop and have lunch at Stewart’s almost every Saturday morning when I was growing up. Just a little “girl time.”
A graveside service was held on August 27, 2020 in The Temple Cemetery.
Memorial gifts to The Temple in honor of Bernice Brill are appreciated.
