Bertha received her education through the Tullahassee, Oklahoma school systems. Later in her life, she met and married Marvin M. Ridge and through this union eight children were born. Bertha accepted Christ at an early age in her life. She was a faithful member of Parchester First Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Joseph Harold. Bertha was an outgoing, loving, understanding, and forgiving person. In early November 1993, she became ill. All during her illness, she held onto her faith in God. She fought a hard battle and came out with the victory and went home to be with the Lord.
