The fist thing I thought of when I got the news is Dianne talking about traveling to countless bowling tournaments with mom. I therefore know Bertha as "mom." I know she will be missed and know she is loved.

The Regulatory law department will be making a memorial contribution.

I'm very saddened by the news of Bertha's passing. I have known her, for a very long time and had talked to her just about a month ago...Please know, that I would be there, if I could, but will be out of town on Monday. My sympathies to all of you..she was a special lady. I will miss her a lot! Kathy Roschen

I didn't have the opportunity to know Bertha, but I know she must have been a wonderful woman because she raised such a wonderful daughter, Dianne Barthel. Dianne has talked frequently and lovingly about her mother.

My thoughts are with the entire family at this time of grief.
