Sister Bernice Kraus, who made her monastic profession on June 24, 1934, was a childcare provider at St. Joseph’s Orphange in Little Rock. Later, at home in the monastery, she served the community as mail distributor.

She is survived by the sisters of her religious community; two sisters, Julia Horton of Pilot Grove, MO, and Pauline Richardson of Booneville; and a brother, Edgar Kraus of Pilot Grove.
