Bernice Adams

Born in Preston on December 2, 1934, Bernice Marjorie (Brine) Adams was well known for her work as a radio commentator, as a journalist and as a member of first the Galt and then the Cambridge city councils. Adams wrote a regular column for the Cambridge Reporter called "Adams About Anything". The column featured stories about local history, personalities and all the fun of raising teenagers.

Mrs. Adams died on November 26, 1980 and is buried in Mount View Cemetery.
