Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Lois Virginia Bercillio was born June 9 1939 to Linnie Shepard and Arthur Sherman in Memphis Tennessee.
Island 40 was where she grew up and raised with her siblings. Her sisters Faye and Daris. Her brothers Wayne and Ray.
She grew up in the cotton fields and hard work was no stranger.
After leaving Memphis she had four children Teresa Nelson, John Berray, Ken Berray, and Earl Berray. Later she would find herself in Montrose Colorado where she met Benny Bercillio whom she married and had her youngest daughter Catrina Perez. She helped raise his youngest daughter Lori Landice whom she considered a daughter of her own.
After her divorce she remained friends and considered the Bercillio family her lifetime family. She had many grandkids that she loved talking about and had special ties to several. Many nieces and nephews considered her the best Aunt and her cooking was something that will be talked about for years. She was admired for her straight to the point attitude. She had no problem saying what was on her mind. She was outgoing and a friend to many. She always helped people and loved setting a plate at her table for anyone willing to come. She was strong and fought many medical issues. A two-time cancer survivor and a true warrior up to the end. August 21st, 2020 is when her journey here ended, and she was welcomed into our heavenly fathers’ arms. Crippin Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. 970-249-2121
