Warren, Bernice "Bernie", Dr. 5 Jun 1934 - 10 Aug 2009 SN-L 12 Aug 2009
[Note: Daughter of Omar & Opal ( ) Warren]
Dr. Bernice "Bernie" Warren "Make dust our paper, and with rainy eyes write sorrow in the bosom of the earth." The words are Shakespeare's. The "rainy eyes" are those of countless friends, colleagues, and former students upon hearing of the August 10th death of Dr. Bernice ("Bernie") Warren, of Springfield. The daughter of Omar and Opal Warren, Bernie was born on June 5, 1934 in Ozark, Mo. She was an only child. The family moved to Neosho and Bernie graduated from high school there in 1952. She received her Bachelor's degree in 1955 from what is now Missouri State University, after which she taught English and social studies for one year at Reed Junior High and then she taught English for one year at Central High School in Springfield. Higher education called and Bernie went on to earn a Master's Degree from the University of Arkansas in 1959 and a Ph.D. from the University of Missouri, Columbia in 1967. She accepted a position at Southern Illinois University in 1966 and until 1969 was in charge of the Freshman English program there. In 1969, Bernie returned to Missouri State to begin a long and honored career. She taught English, of course. However in 1974, she also began a career in University administration which continued until her retirement. She served first as Assistant Dean of Faculties, serving the distinguished Dean of Faculties, Robert K. Gilmore. In 1985, she was named Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences-the first woman ever to serve as a College Dean at the University. Although the name of her College changed to the College of Humanities and Public Affairs, Bernie served in that position until her retirement in June, 1999, Until her death she held the titles Professor Emeritus of English, and Emeritus Dean. Bernie paved the way for other women at the University as she assumed various leadership roles. She was the founder of the long-successful new student orientation program known as Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR), and she was the spirit of that program. Her presentation, "Six Ways To Be Successful," inspired a generation of SOAR students. Bernie considered SOAR to be the achievement she was most proud of. She was an avid supporter of the University's athletic programs, and in her younger days she played a really mean game of tennis. She was a problem-solver, and that unique capacity was the hallmark of her years as an administrator. There were never many uncut Gordian knots when Bernie was the administrator. More than anything else, Bernie was a teacher of, a friend of and an advocate for students. She was a loving and stern mentor, and students flocked to her courses and to her office. When University administrators travel to meetings of alumni groups, one of the most-asked questions they hear is "How is Dr. Warren?" (Sometimes worded, "How is "Bernie?") The university has honored Bernie for her service. In 1994, she was given the Outstanding Alumni Award. Following her retirement, friends and colleagues set up the Bernice Sue Warren Lecture Series Fund, and the University President gave her the Bear Plaque award. In 2005 a space was dedicated to her on the University's Wall of Fame. Now she is gone, except from the hearts and memories of the many who loved her. Graveside services will be held at IOOF Cemetery in Neosho, Missouri at 1 p.m. Thursday, August 13, 2009 with Dr. Russell Keeling officiating. A Memorial Service will be held in the Crystal Room of Kentwood Hall at 700 St Louis in Springfield, Missouri, Saturday, August 29 at 11 a.m. Memorials may be made to the Newton County Historical Society, Southwest Humane Society in Springfield or St. John's Hospice in Springfield through Clark Funeral Home, P.
