Bertha’s greatest love was that of her family. She was the center figure in the lives of her children and grandchildren. Anyone who knew her lovingly considered her “granny”.

You will forever be in our hearts Granny.

I was blessed to have the privilege of learning to know Bertha. I met her when she became my Mother, Orpha Miller's roommate at Harrisonburg Health and Rehab. It was always a pleasure to talk with her and she was a very positive lady. I came to know Betty and Roy as we would often visit at the same time. When either family brought something for their mother they also brought for the roommate. The staff loved both of them especially because they never complained about anything. Both Bertha and Orpha are now in heaven and Bertha can hear and Mother can see.
