Bertie was such a kind and gentle woman. She has a loving family who will miss her terribly. May she Rest In Peace.

Just read the post on your mother. Very sorry . She was the start of a good family.

Aunt Bertie, you always had a great smile! You and John raised a tremendous family that I have many fond memories of! May God bless you and your family.

I just now realize your family is grieving the lost of your beloved mother
All my sympathy. Astounding that she was 101 before she was called home.
