Bertha was born, the daughter of Asa Franklin Sharp and Laura Mae (Fowler) Sharp in Cleveland, Oklahoma. She was the youngest of two brothers (Claremore and Leo) and two sisters, Hetta (Mrs Lee Morgan) and Goldie (Mrs Carl Spencer). She and her parents lived their lives in Pryor, Mayes, Oklahoma. She married Clyde Beven Allred in 1938 and she gave birth and raised three sons (Clyde Jr, Darrell, and Jim) and two daughters, Rosetta (Mrs Harold Ingram) and Shirley (Mrs Edward Giboney).
In the early 1950s she sang almost daily with a band at the old KOLS radio station, singing mostly country and gospel songs. She also worked at Cherokee Togs where she sewed cloth and leather country and western clothes. After the children left home, they moved back to the country near where they first met and married. They owned and managed five to six rental properties.
She loved visiting with family and friends and organized and attended family reunions. She battled cancer in the late 1970s and when it went into remission, she made travel one of her biggest priorities and pleasures. The cancer won the final battle in 2002.
