Bernadine Marie (Meyer) Humason, 90, of Cincinnati, Ohio, passed away, Saturday, December 25, 2021 at Maple Knoll Village, Springdale, Ohio.
Bernie was born on the family farm in Bay, Missouri, on March 7, 1931. She was the daughter of Karl “Charles” and Clara (Schneider) Meyer. She was the widow of James C. “Jim” Humason, who preceded her in death on December 28, 2003. They were united in marriage on April 16, 1955, in Bay, Missouri. They moved to the Cincinnati, Ohio suburb of Finneytown just a few years later and she lived and raised a family there for more than 50 years.
