San Francisco Chronicle - - BAY AREA -

Ber­nadette was born in Queens, New York to Mary Feeney Flynn and Melville Flynn. Her brother Frank pre­ceded her in death in 2009. Af­ter eight years at St. Barts Gram­mar School in Elmhurst, New York, Ber­nadette was awarded an aca­demic schol­ar­ship to Bishop Mcdon­ald High School in Brook­lyn. Af­ter grad­u­a­tion, she at­tended Grace In­sti­tute in Man­hat­tan for a year, be­fore join­ing the le­gal depart­ment of W.R. Grace.

Ber­nadette mar­ried Ed Dantzig on Oc­to­ber 30, 1965 and later moved from Long Is­land to Pleasan­ton in 1973. To­gether she and Ed raised their three chil­dren, daugh­ter Kerry, and sons Brian and Michael. She is also sur­vived by her lov­ing daugh­ter-in-laws, Melissa and Car­rie Dantzig. She cher­ished her grand­chil­dren and loved see­ing them of­ten. She talked, lis­tened, and doted on them. Grand­sons Alex (Br­ie­gan), Dy­lan, Tan­ner, Con­nor, Liam and grand­daugh­ter Nicole, will cher­ish their mem­o­ries and time spent to­gether with Grandma.

Ber­nadette’s friends from St. Au­gus­tine Catholic Church, her work and vol­un­teer friends at Hope Hos­pice and her ex­er­cise, book­club, & cof­fee girl­friends gave her great love, sup­port and en­cour­age­ment dur­ing her long bat­tle with ALS.

Ber­nadette was an avid reader and loved to travel, es­pe­cially to visit fam­ily in New York, De­nis, Dorothy and Mar­ian, and to her large and lov­ing fam­ily in Ire­land and Eng­land. Stay­ing in close con­tact with ex­tended fam­ily gave her hope and sus­tained her dur­ing her ill­ness. Heart­felt grat­i­tude to the Feeney, Lo­han, and Moly­noux fam­i­lies.

A funeral mass for Ber­nadette will be held at St. Au­gus­tine Catholic Church at 1 p.m. on Fri­day, Septem­ber 25.
