Bernadine Kelly Styles

Bernadine Kelly Styles, 90, died peacefully Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, at Croasdaile Village Pavilion in Durham, North Carolina.

She was born Dec. 17, 1922, in Cullman County, Alabama to Ernest and Claudia Blalock Kelly. She met Travis Styles, the love of her life while attending Cullman High School and they were married on April 4, 1942, in Hanceville. Bernadine spent the next 65 years supporting her husband as a pastor, which included teaching hundreds of preschoolers as well as raising three children of her own. During the 1970’s she worked for the North Carolina Baptist Convention training Sunday school teachers throughout the state. She was always an active member in church choirs and volunteered in the Ladies Auxiliary in local hospitals After semi-retirement, Bernadine and Travis returned to Cullman and built a home on Smith Lake where they enjoyed several years being close to family. In 2000, they returned to North Carolina due to health concerns.

Blessed with many talents, she was an outstanding seamstress and enjoyed painting later in life. Her interests also included gardening and reading. She devoted much of her time traveling to the many revivals where Travis was invited to preach. Bernadine will be best remembered by all she met for her beautiful smile, endearing personality and steadfast faith in God

Her husband, Travis Styles, preceded her in death in 2007. Bernadine is survived by her sister, Ernestine (Robert) Teichmiller of Hanceville, AL; two sons, Tom (Melanie) Styles of Pace, FL; Kelly Styles of Los Angeles, CA, a daughter, Jo Styles (Steve) Oakley of Durham, NC; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be sent to the Employee Fund of Croasdale Village, 2600 Croasdale Farm Parkway, Durham, NC 27705 or to Grove Park Baptist Church, 108 Trail One, Burlington, NC 27215.
