Bernadine was born September 2, 1921 in Logan, Iowa to Henry and Nina Putney.  In her earlier years, she worked in several bakeries in Des Moines, Iowa while raising her children.  On May 12, 1962 Bernadine married Leo McBride.  Together, they made their home on a farm in rural Mount Ayr, Iowa.  Bernadine was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother; she adored her family more than anything.
