She was a member of St. Martin’s Altar Society, Good Sam’s Club and Lamplighters Bowling League. It was rare to see Bertha sitting idle, she would always be busy with her flower gardens and vegetable gardens where nothing went to waste. She loved to crochet and she would make afghans for her children and grandchildren as they graduated from high school. Her family was central in her life and she always made sure that the candy dishes were full when they came to visit. Her love and support of her family will always be treasured by her children..
