Mom was born in Sunshine, Ontario on April 26, 1922. She later moved to Ingolf with her family where she met Dad, whom she married in 1946. They moved to Kenora in 1955 where they raised their family.
Mom enjoyed spending time with family, knitting, crocheting, gardening, and baking. In later years she enjoyed taking short trips with her daughters, Ruth and Ken. These involved lots of laughter and many fond memories.
Bertha was a member of the Lutheran Church and enjoyed her many get-togethers with the Martha group.
