Learn more about Bernice Dansby


Lorem Ipsum Fifth child of Frank and Louise Price was born April 17th, 1920 – right between Aunt Helen and Uncle Joe. Aunt Bernice has been an active member of many of her communities’ organizations, not just as a member but also as a leader and office holder of these organizations, including her church, her university (Langston), her neighborhood block club, and her bridge club. When I asked Aunt Bernice to tell about growing up with her siblings and parents she told me: “Twice per year Papa took us to Checotah in a cover wagon to buy shoes and clothed. Papa would faithfully transport the family to church. Though He himself didn’t go in – he made sure we got there. Mom left cookies for him at home. At Christmas time if there was snow in the yard, Papa would walk around leaving footprints and would tell us they were from Santa’s steps. Apples, oranges and nuts were the gifts we received. Papa wouldn’t let anyone mess with his girls. He would say ‘I’ll knock their heads clean off.’ Moma would have our older sister Jackie to “whip” us. We tried to get Moma to say which child she liked best but she would say ‘ All of them dodrodit!’ We knew she meant it. After Papa died our Aunt Ruth would find places for us to live but Moma would just come and get us back after about a week.
