Bernard D. “Bernie” Anthony

Benard AnthonyBernard D. “Bernie” Anthony, 82, of Rimersburg, PA, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, April 7, 2017 at Clarion Hospital.

He was born May 25, 1934 in Pinoak, PA, to Clance and Frances (Swartz) Anthony.

On June 28, 1952, Bernie married the love of his life, Marcella Kriebel Anthony, whom he fondly called “Lovey.”
