Bernadine was born December 14, 1925, to Andrew Heinen and Emma Feurch in Milo, IA. She was raised in Iowa and took care of the family for many years in her younger years. Bernadine moved to Selfridge to keep house for her brother, Fr Victor, at the age of 17.

Bernadine married Conrad Wingerter on June 14, 1944 at St. Philomena in Selfridge, ND. Together they raised their children and took over the family farm. She cooked, baked, and was a caretaker for many years in the Selfridge area. Bernadine played harmonica, was an avid sewer, gardener, and cook. No one ever left her house hungry. She was always reading and enjoyed puzzles, playing bingo, had a collection of cranberry crystals and loved to dance.

Years after Conrad died, she moved to Mandan. On December 23, 1988 she married Edwin Tosseth in Mandan, ND. Bernadine spent her last four years comfortable and with great care at St. Gabriel’s in Bismarck. Bernadine was a vibrant wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother whose wonderful personality, full of laughter and the joy of life, will be missed by all that loved and knew her.
