Bertha Mae (Bornt)Thompson was born on February 21st, 1921 to the late Sadie Mae (Billington) Bornt & Arthur John Bornt Sr.
Bertha's mother died on April 14th 1937 when she was only 16 years old & as the only daughter, she had to help raise her seven brothers. Ronald James (Aug. 1916-2003), Harold J. "Bump" (July 1919- (deceased)), Arthur John Jr. "June" (June 1923-2005), Richard Leroy (1925), Joseph Willard (Feb. 1932-2009) & John Allen.
She was affectionately called by family & friends, "Doodaa" & "Toots"
She would marry Clarence Thompson (Deceased) & have one daughter Beverly (Thompson) VanNatter.
But her marriage did not last and after her divorce, she would take on many jobs to support herself & her daughter. She had worked for Robison & Smith and for Sisson's Box Company for many years, retiring in 1983. (Although, she was always a hard worker)
She loved flowers & her flower gardens. She loved shopping & buying clothes and she enjoyed canning & making pickles & baking cakes. She liked going to Schoharie to pick vegetables of which much was used in her canning. She was a very good cook, her roast dinners & beef stew were some of her best. I learned a lot of my cooking & enjoyment of cooking from her.
She was always healthy, rarely sick, but cancer got the best of her and through it all, even when she was sick, she never complained, she was a tough woman, one that is dearly loved & dearly missed.
She was Pre-deceased by both parents & her brother Harold "Bump"
She is survived by her brothers John, Richard & half brother Jim Bornt & her daughter Beverly VanNatter & granddaughter Brenda Wagner plus many nieces & nephews.
