Congratulations, Everyone!

 

With Deepest Sympathy

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Bob Wernick has lost his beloved wife, Nina. Nina was supportive of Bob's passion for the game of duplicate bridge, whcih resulted in the "Bob Wernick Family Building" housing the Duncan Bridge Center in Palm Desert. Bob and Nina were married 53 years and enjoyed a life in Minnesota and Orange County until their retirement to the desert. Nina was 77 years old and bravely lost her fight to cancer. In her prime, Nina was a gold medal ice skater. She is survived by Bob, two daughters and a grandson.
