Dear Barbara, you don't know me, but I am Marge from Epiphany of Our Lord Byz. Rite Catholic Church. I have known Bertha for years and we talked over the phone before she really got bad with her back, etc. I was so surprised to see in our Church Bulletin of Jan 27th that she has passed on in Braddock, PA. I am from Clairton, PA south of Pittsburgh.
I am familiar with your area too. This hit me hard as Bertha was a delightful lady, loved to dance the polkas and dressed to her native costume too. She was a very caring and loving person and she supported me in my early sufferings too. So sorry to hear this and knowing that she is now at peace and with our Lord holding her his hands. Glad she was with you during her last days. You have my deepest sympathy in your great loss of your Aunt Bertha. I, too, will miss her. God Bless You and Your Family.
