"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 173, No 3, p 16, July 16, 1962.

Mrs. Bertha FitzRandolph, the eldest child of Rev. [?] and Mrs. James Newton Pierce, was born in Humboldt, Neb., Sept. 1, 1894. At the age of 10, she moved with her parents to Fouke, Ark., where they united with the Seventh Day Baptist Church and she and her brother and sisters attended the school conducted by the church.

On Sept. 17, 1913, she was married to Wardner T. FitzRandolph, with whom she shared a long and fruitful life. Eight children were born to this marriage. All these children are now living and have their own families, counting 24 grandchildren for Bertha.

For a few years the family lived in Alfred, N. Y., where Rev. FitzRandolph pursued studies in Theology, and returned to Arkansas in 1926. In 1944 Rev. and Mrs. FitzRandolph with the three youngest children answered the call to become missionaries in Jamaica, where they spent ten very successful years.

They returned to the United States, making their home in Florida until the death of Mr. FitzRandolph about three years ago after which Mrs. FitzRandolph returned to her former home in Texarkana. She had served throughout a long and profitable life as mother of a large family, wife of a missionary, deaconess of her church and willing servant of her God.

She passed away at the home of her son, William P. FitzRandolph, May 20, 1962. The funeral service was conducted by Pastor Marion C. Van Horn in the Texarkana Seventh Day Baptist Church and she was buried in Memorial Gardens at Texarkana, Arkansas.
