Momma, Mamaw, Grammaw, Sister, Aunt Bernie, Mrs. Hedrick, and also just Bernie to some.

 

Mary Hyberina Minyard Hedrick was born on March 20, 1926 to James Oscar Minyard and Mary Elizabeth Garrett Minyard in Garner, Arkansas. Bernie was born into the love a great big family—she was one of 14! She grew up on the family farm in Searcy where that great big family worked hard on the 80 acre family farm hoeing & growing strawberries, corn, and cotton. She met Leroy Hedrick and after a courtship they were married on January 5, 1946 in Searcy Arkansas. They had a strong marriage with the Lord at the center. Bernia loved Leroy so much that she even married him twice! We have proof—we found a marriage renewal certificate date December 9, 1990!
