Sad news – Bernie Mills


It is with great sadness that we have to announce the sudden death of Bernie Mills who worked out of this office as CAFOD’s community participation coordinator.

Bernie had a heart attack on the evening of 1st October and passed away that same evening.

This news comes as a great shock, especially as this was so unexpected with no hint of any prior illness or troubles. We, in the office, are all devastated by this news with losing such a close friend and great colleague.

We do ask you to keep her family in her prayers during this extremely difficult time.

Her funeral will be held on Thursday 15th October, 11:30am at St Alban’s Church in Splott, Cardiff CF24 2NX.

The family are happy for friends and CAFOD supporters to attend and pay their respects. The family have asked for any money, in lieu of flowers, can be sent into CAFOD in memory of Bernie.

We are collecting all messages of condolences from CAFOD supporters, which we will put into a book and present to the family at the funeral. If you would like to add a message please email us at and we will gladly add it in.

Bernie Mills, RIP

1960 – 2015

  1. Kieran,   Please pass my deepest condolences on to Tony for me as I have no contact number for them.  I couldn’t believe it when I heard about it on Saturday as she had made me coffee on Wednesday!   Go well.   JF

  2. So shocked to hear this news. Kieran, you and the rest of the team must be so sad. Bernie was the most lovely person. I can’t think what her family must be going through. Thank you for letting us know. Take care, Teresa

  3. With great sadness we pass on our condolences to Bernie’s family and will remember her in our prayers.
