Eisen, Bernice F.

Bernice F. Eisen, 101, was born on April 4, 1916, on Staten Island, New York, to Bernard and Ida Schwartz and came to Kansas City at the age of 12 after her father passed away.

Bernice died on Jan. 18, 2018, at Menorah Medical Center in Overland Park, Kansas, following a short illness after living a very long and satisfying life. She was married to Morton Eisen for 38 years until his death in 1975. She was the consummate mah jongg and Rummikub player and thoroughly enjoyed the friends she made before and after she moved to Village Shalom. She was a lifelong member of The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah.

Bernice is preceded in death by her twin sisters, Shirley Baum, Miami, Florida, and Muriel Cowic, Cleveland, Ohio. She is survived by her brother, Leonard (Charlotte) Schwartz, Cleveland, Ohio; two children, Barbara Eisen and Stu (Ellen) Eisen, of Kansas City, Missouri; one granddaughter, Lauren (Russ) Peloquin and two great-grandchildren, Parker and Hailey, Overland Park, Kansas, as well as a niece and several nephews.

It was important to Bernice to always look her best and she did even until the end.

Our family would like to thank the wonderful caregivers at Village Shalom for all they did to make her stay something to always remember.

Bernice was a lifelong member of Temple B’nai Jehudah. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Graveside services were held Monday, Jan. 22, 2018, at Rose Hill Cemetery, Kansas City, Missouri.
