Bernice Domres

August 7, 1924 — June 24, 2022

Bernice Domres, 97, of Langdon, ND, and formerly of Wales, ND, passed away June 24, 2022, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon with family by her side.

Bernice Marie Schmidt was born August 7, 1924, in Wales, ND, to Henry and Elizabeth (Materna) Schmidt. She grew up and attended school in the Wales area and graduated from Wales High School in 1941. Bernice began working as a clerk at the Wales Post Office in September 1942 and was appointed Postmaster in August 1971. She retired from the postal service in December 1991 after 48 years of service.

Bernice was united in marriage to Edwin Domres on July 21, 1947, at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Wales. They farmed and worked together to raise their son in the Wales area. She was a dedicated farmer’s wife, helping with the chores and all that went into living life on the farm. Edwin died March 9, 1982. She continued to live in Wales until April 2008 when she moved to Wheatland Assisted Living in Langdon. She later transitioned to the adjacent Maple Manor Care Center in June 2020.

Bernice was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, St. Michael’s Altar Society, and Christian Mothers. She taught religion classes and was the church treasurer for many years. She was also a member and treasurer of the Cavalier County Historical Society. She enjoyed gardening, baking, reading, crossword puzzles, playing BINGO, and traveling with her sister, Helen.

She will always be remembered for her passionate faith and love for God, and for her love, kindness, and timeless care and support of her family and friends. She had a steadfast faith in God that never waivered during the most difficult hours of her life. She was a loving mother, grandma, sister, aunt and friend to so many. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who were her greatest blessing.

Surviving Bernice are her son, Paul (Linda) Domres of Wales; grandchildren: Jeff (Cassidy) Domres of Langdon; Karen (Scott) Davis of Casselton; and Vicki (Joe) Gleason of Devils Lake; great-grandchildren: Alex, Taylor, and James Domres; Aiden, Maya, Camden and Leo Davis; Zander, Weston and Mollie Gleason; Samantha McKay; and Kason Harrington; great-great-grandchildren: Kayden, Kylah, and Winston; sister-in-law Nita Domres, and many nieces and nephews.
