Bernadette Fee lived a long life filled with love, humor, joy, generosity, and faith. Born in Manhattan in 1929, Bernadette had eight brothers and sisters and a large extended family with whom she was close throughout her life.
Bernadette attended St. Frances de Sales School as a child, and graduated from Cathedral High school.

Business-savvy and diligent, Bernadette embodied self-reliance and determination. While working full-time, Bernadette attended Fordham University, earning a Bachelor of Arts.
Bernadette lived most of her life with her aunts Ena and Margie in Stuyvesant Town. A lifelong animal lover, she cherished the companionship of her beloved cats Susie and Therese, and her cockatoo Mr. Bird.
Bernadette will be remembered for her generosity, as she gave endlessly to the Church, schools, animal rights, and many other causes.
Bernadette was a devout parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church, attended Mass daily, and served the church as a Lector. Bernadette loved the community and the practice of prayer that she found in the Church. She had a deep faith and an abiding trust in God that gave her confidence and calm; never was this more evident than at the end of her life, when she so obviously was at peace.
Bernadette’s life of independence, love, sacrifice and faith was an inspiration to family and friends alike, who are grateful to have shared her long life with her.
