Condolence from George & Eileen Chatten on October 13th, 2018 2:56 PM

Bertha will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was a dear sister
to me and we shared many happy times together. Her family were most important in her life and her home was so important to us all. As the days go by you will often reflect of the things she said and did. She will not be forgotten in your hearts. Dwell on the good memories and bond together.
Thinking of you all with Love.
George & Eileen

Though your smile is gone forever
And your hand we cannot touch
We still have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much
Your memory is our keepsake
With which we’ll never part
God has you in his keeping
We have you in our hearts

Brother Gerry and Gwyneth

I will really miss Aunty Bertha. She always welcomed us with open arms whenever we were in town. I remember staying with Aunty Bertha when I was a teenager and going to play bingo. It was a lot of fun. I am very glad that we were able to see Aunty Bertha this summer. It was a short visit but a special one for me. You will forever be in our hearts Aunty Bertha!

Condolence from Tova Matthews on October 18th, 2018 1:30 PM

We lost an amazing woman, who touched everyone’s life one way or another, she will be sadly missed by all of us.

Mom, I was so blessed to have known you for 12.5yrs. When we first met and you welcomed my children and I into your family, I was so honored as you were a very loving, nurturing, caring and strong woman, a woman in time that I would be happy and feel very comfortable in calling Mom. The children always looked at you as a grandma and were proud to call you that. As much as I miss you, I’m also relieved you no longer have to suffer, I will though forever miss you, your smile, your hellos when we walk into the kitchen, your laughter and most of all your very warm heart. I will always love you to the ends of the earth and back. Rest in peace Mom, till we meet again.♥️♥️

For you are the closest possibility of an angel that I have encountered. Your infectious smile and laughter I will hold dear to me. You are a true example of what humanity should be.
