I am so sorry for you loss. I work in the building. She always had a smile and a hello. She will be greatly missed.

Jeanette, Bill and family, I am sorry for the loss of your Aunt.

Bertha and I worked together for almost 5 years at the Water Dept. She even sang at our wedding. Bertha and I at one time were friends and then things changed and we have not been friends for quite a while. I know she would not have wanted me to come to the funeral home so I wanted to at least extend my condolences in some way. I am glad she was with her family in her last moments. She loved you all very much.

My sincere sympathy to all of you for your loss. I had known Bertha all of her life. In 1945 we moved and I was not in touch with Bertha until just 3 years ago. She was so excited with her work with the chorus and the Christmas performances.

I have very fond memories of Bertha, her parents, Bill and Aylia.

I feel such a loss as you must also.
