Bernice K. Feldman, a resident of Briarcliff Manor for more than 50 years, died on Jan. 6 in Texas. She was 94.

A graduate of Hunter College, Columbia University and New York University, Dr. Feldman specialized in speech pathology and rehabilitation, serving as a speech therapist, pathologist and teacher at numerous health and educational institutions, including the Dobbs Ferry School System, Lehman College, the College of New Rochelle, Mercy College, Westchester Community College, Phelps Memorial Hospital and the Mount St. Ursula Speech Center.

She was a past president of the Westchester Speech, Hearing and Language Association and served as a consultant to IBM. She also maintained a private practice in Briarcliff.

She was born Bernice Natallie Komarow on Dec. 7, 1923 in New York City to Benjamin Komarow, an attorney, and the former Shirley Rappaport. During World War II, she enlisted and served as an officer in the Navy WAVES.

She is survived by four children, Lynne Katz, Lee Feldman, Nance Elmore, and Elizabeth Feldman Brandt, eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Leonard Feldman, her husband of 63 years, died in 2007.

A memorial service is being planned for February.
