'Love everlasting' a Moorpark couple's creedo
By Sylvie Belmond belmond@theacorn.com

Even after more than five decades of marriage, Cliff and Berneice Risley continue to demonstrate to each other daily that love is a long-lasting pledge.

Where's the story?PointsMentioned Map2 Points Mentioned

"Not a day goes by that they don't hug, hold hands, exchange a heartfelt kiss and genuinely say to each other 'I love you,'" said their daughter Cheri Risley-Bonnert.

"You have to have a real commitment and make a commitment with God and your family," said Cliff Risley, 83.

"We love each other so much," said Berneice, adding her husband of 55 years is a wonderful man and she loves everything about him.

The admiration is mutual. "She's a very loving person and has always been very considerate of everyone," said Cliff.

"She's always happy, smiling and keeps herself beautiful," he said, adding he loves her eyes and the way she dresses.

The pair met in Indianapolis and they fell in love right away.







"We took our vows very seriously and became not only husband and wife, but also best friends," Cliff said.

Whether it's traveling, raising children or helping at their grand-daughter's school here in Moorpark, the Risley always do everything together, they said. They're also very close to their family, which includes three children and five grandchildren.

Cliff was Director of Research for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the Great Lakes Region and Berneice worked for the American Beverage and Supply Corp until she retired to raise her children.

The couple moved to Moorpark three years ago so they could be close to their daughter and grand-daughter who is 9-year-old.

"They've always been so romantic, it's amazing, RisleyBonnert said.

When she was a teenager Risley-Bonnert said she was embarrassed because her parents were the only ones around who were romantic, but in the long run it's helped her and her two brothers with their own relationships, she said.

They all enjoy successful marriages that have lasted more than 20 years each.

The couple goes to Campus Canyon Elementary School weekly to read with young students and even there, love is in the air.

They arrive every Thursday morning holding hands and leave at the end of the day the same way," said Campus Canyon Principal Linda Bowe.

Cliff is very protective and gentlemanly toward his wife Berneice, she said.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Berneice's lifetime

In 1923, in the year that Berneice Christine (Striebel) Risley was born, Harlem's Cotton Club opened in New York City. Owned by a bootlegger and gangster, it was a 700 seat speakeasy that catered to a "white only" clientele. But most of the entertainers were African-American and featured some of the best entertainers of the time such as Lena Horne, the Nicholas Brothers, Ethel Waters, and Cab Calloway.

In 1948, when she was 25 years old, on May 14th, the State of Israel was proclaimed by David Ben-Gurion, who became Israel's first Premier, and the U.S. officially recognized Israel. That evening, Egypt launched an air assault on Israel.

In 1969, she was 46 years old when on January 20th, Richard M. Nixon became the 37th President of the United States. Previously the Vice President to President Eisenhower, Nixon was the only President to resign in office - in his second term.

In 1973, at the age of 50 years old, Berneice was alive when on January 28th, the Paris Peace Accord was signed - supposedly ending the Vietnam War. Hostilities continued between North and South Vietnam and the U.S. continued to bomb. But by August 15, 1973, 95% of American troops had left Vietnam. The war ended in 1975 with the fall of Saigon.

In 1983, by the time she was 60 years old, on August 30th, the Soviet Union claimed that a South Korean Boeing 747 jetliner (Flight 007), bound for Seoul from New York City, had strayed into Soviet airspace. Saying that they believed it to be a U.S. spy plane, the passenger jet was shot down by a Soviet SU-15 fighter - after it had tracked the airliner for two hours. All 269 passengers (including a U.S. Representative from Georgia) and crew were killed.
