October 22, 1928—November 4, 2017
Our Mom, Bernice Selby Dennis, 89, passed away on November 4 2017 in Elko, NV. She was born on the family farm in Nebraska on October 22, 1928 to Evard Selby and Francis Blanc Selby. She was an excellent horsewoman and loved camping and fishing. Bernice married Bud Hockemier and later married Tom Dennis. Mom was an incredibly hard worker and a woman ahead of her time. She worked at Barrick and Duval Corporation mines, she was a realtor, and owned her own pilot car service. Bernice also worked for Churchill County Sheriff’s Department as a dispatcher, which she loved. She is survived by her 3 sons, Raymond Hockemier, Ron Hockemier (Missy) and Roger Hockemier; 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Ernest Selby. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date in Elko, NV. The family wishes to thank Highland Manor for their mother’s excellent care.
