1 Cor 13:13 ...Faith, Hope, Charity. But the greatest of these is Love.”
Love was her life. Her cup overflowed with love.
She gave her love unconditionally to her family and all who knew her.
There will be noticeably less love in the lives of all who knew her.
She will continue to fill our memories with her unceasing joy, strength and courage.
She will be missed.
In lieu of flowers, please send memorials in her name to

For those who knew her, she wrote a book about her Childhood.
On her 80th birthday, we (her children) surprised her by posting a copy of her book online.
In addition to that, we surprised her by writing a collection of stories of our childhood.
We called it the "Sequel" to her book and included many pictures. Upon her passing we found that she had actually written still another book!
Wow, she had so many talents! and so much ambition!
The next book is called "Don & Bertha - 1942 to 1992".
Our plan is to eventually post that book with the others,
and to add to the sequel and the photo albums.
