Bertha Emma Zacharias Koester was born on May 12, 1916 in McGregor, in McLennan County, Texas to Carl and Ottilie Zacharias. She was one of six children.

On October 28, 1937 she married Arnold Julius Koester in McGregor, in Coryell County, Texas. Arnold's brother, Edwin, dated and later married Bertha's younger sister Alice.

Arnold and Bertha had two children. Their son, Carlos Arnold, died as an infant. They also have a daughter Eline Lyndia. Arnold and Bertha raised their family in Olney, Texas.

Bertha was a loving mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. I loved visiting their house in Olney, Texas. They always had dogs and I remember their Pekingese and their Chow. I was afraid of the Chow but loved their Pekingese. Aunt Bertha was so sweet and had a joy about her that made you want to be around her. Bertha and her family were devout Lutherans. She made me a beautiful doll that I cherish and love.

Bertha died on March 5, 1994 in Olney, in Young County, Texas and was buried in the Restland Cemetery in Olney, in Young County, Texas. She is missed deeply and we know her love is always with us.
