Vera Marie Caldwell Bertels
Birth: Jan. 11, 1913
Fort Smith
Sebastian County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Jul. 15, 1966
Bethesda
Montgomery County
Maryland, USA

Vera Marie (Caldwell) Bertels was born on Jan. 11, 1913 in Ft. Smith, Arkansas to Charlie and Otha (Bryan) Caldwell. She met and married her husband, Alvis, in Deer Trail, Colorado on Mar. 4, 1931.
Marie was a loving and social person. Her son said she could go into a room anywhere in the United States and within 15 minutes find a distant relative or someone with a mutual acquaintance. After the death of her husband, she served as the first housemother of a fraternity on the University of Washington campus. She then joined the household of her son, Charles.
She suffered a brain aneurysm while driving with her daughter-in-law and eight grandchildren from Memphis, Tennessee to Virginia Beach, Virginia, where her son, Charles, had recently been posted. She was flown from a small country hospital in Tennessee to Bethesda Naval Hospital, where she was met by her son. She passed away shortly afterward.
Marie was survived by two daughters, two sons, her mother, Mrs. Otha Caldwell of Davis, California; two sisters, Mrs. Imogene Perkins of Davis, California, and Mrs. Ruby Cox of Mill Valley, California; a brother, Dr. Charles Caldwell of Davis, California, and 17 grandchildren.
