My Aunt Bertha was the most influential person in my life! I admired her working full time and caring for 8 J’s. My parents needed help caring for Rod and I when we were young. She welcomed us with open arms and her warm smile. We were always made to feel part of the family. She made everything look so easy. I learned so much from her, I’m still working on being patient though. I fondly remember weekend picnics in the hills, trips to Bodega Bay, trips in the camper rock hounding, our yearly trips to The California State Fair with our picnic dinner, and our many great conversations. I will miss the best pies ever! I bake many things but I could never bake a pie as good as Aunt Bertha. She just had the perfect touch.
The best part of my trips home was to come visit - Aunt Bertha always answered the door with a smile and said “It is so great to see you”. That is unconditional love.
I will carry you in my heart forever! ❤️

Eighty eight years ago I hit the Lottery Jackpot. I was born into a family with a
ten year old sister. Immediately she become my Guardian Angel. All through
my adolescent years she filled in for our bedridden Mother. I was always part of her
family (8 J's). I will always be so gratefull for her loving care of our Mother until
her passing while I was in the Army. My sisters kindness didn't stop with family,
she participated in Senior Meals on wheels.Loaves & Fishes soup kitchen ,Lemon
Tree kids school and would find a needy family at Christmas and buy them clothes,
toys, and food. All this while raising her own family and working outside the home.
Thanks Sis, Job well done !!!
Love from: Brother Kenny and Sisterinlaw Junie

Bertha showed my family the love that my grandmother & grandfather couldn't. Her love and support were very special to my own mother and I know how much Bertha meant to her. I have great memories as a child going to many of the family functions. How special to have enjoyed a long & loving life with her family. She will be missed.

Grandma taught me how to love unconditionally. I am so thankful that I got to see her last year while she still knew me. I wish I could be there with you all!

We can all honor Mom by living the example she was for us. She showed us what real Love is,She was respectful, truthful, kind, a hard worker, a good listener by which she responded with much wisdom and understanding. We all benefited from her sharing her talents at gardening, baking, cooking, sewing. She enjoyed adding fun for us with family get-togethers, Birthday parties, picnics, going camping, going to mountains, to the coast, going for rides, she was generous with her time, she loved each of her family and relatives. Mom's heart and life was a Loving, welcoming, caring one which created happiness for all of us, along with principles for living good lives. Now she loves us from Heaven.( when she sees its our turn to join her, Mom being Mom just might want to bake us a cake!) Our Love for Mom & Dad & one another is forever,
