Obituary

Bernadine Cottonham Player was born on December 3, 1957 to the late Felton and Geraldine Cottonham.

Bernadine attended the public schools of Jackson Parish in Jonesboro, Louisiana. She graduated from Jonesboro-Hodge High School in 1975. She then went on to attend Northwestern State University earning a BS degree in Radiologic Technology in 1980.

After earning her degree Bernadine relocated to Houston, Tx. to begin her career as an X-ray technician at M.D. Anderson. While in Houston she was introduced to Michael Player, who later became her husband. They were married for over two decades until his death in 2006. They had one daughter, Chelsea, who was their world. Bernadine was well loved and respected among her peers and colleagues in the medical profession. As she advanced in her career she later worked for Ben Tab Hospital as a mammography supervisor and MLK Health Center as a mammography technician. Bernadine was an avid reader with a love for Science Fiction, traveling, and gardening. She was a quiet and caring person who was a blessing to many.

Bernadine accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior at a young age and later in life decided to become a member of Brentwood Baptist Church.

Bernadine departed this life on Wednesday, June 17, 2020. She was preceded in death by her parents, Felton and Geraldine Cottonham; her brother, Ronald Cottonham; sister-in-love Diana Cottonham; and her husband, Michael Player.
