In a touching tribute, Coleen tweeted: "I wanna run until my legs break, scream until I have no voice, cry until I cry blood... How's that for how I feel? X."
Following Bernie's funeral in at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool, the former 'Loose Woman' used the social networking site to thank fans for their support.
"Thank you to everyone for all your kind messages about Bernie! And to everyone that showed up yesterday! A very sad but beautiful farewell x," she wrote.
Bernie was initially given the all clear for breast cancer in 2010, but last year discovered it had spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones.
A spokeswoman for the family said she "passed away peacefully...with all of her family around her".
It is believed Bernie has been buried with the ashes of her daughter, Kate, who was stillborn more than a decade ago.
