Bertha Donaldson ROY -- Bertha Donaldson died January 29, 2010 at her home, which she called her "Dream House," after a valiant struggle with the progressive pain of peripheral neuropathy for many years.
She was born October 22, 1933 to Junius Holmes and Lillie Kendell Brown in Roy, Utah, where she lived her entire life.
She attended Weber County schools, graduating from Weber High School in 1951. She served a mission for the LDS Church in Southern California, and spent her whole life serving others and her church. She served as a primary and Sunday school teacher, as well as the ward librarian among other positions throughout her life, and never wavered in her knowledge of her Savior.
She married Walter Dee Donaldson on November 18, 1959 in the Salt Lake Temple.
She worked at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City, the Credit Bureau of Ogden, and spent many happy, successful years providing day care in her home. She is survived by her husband, Walter Dee Donaldson, of Roy; daughter, Cindy (Gordon) Snow; and seven grandchildren: Brandon, Brittnee, Brooke, Boyce, Baylee, Chris and Rylee; and great-grandchildren: Natalie, Vanessa, D.J., Dalton, and Brayden.
She is also survived by her good friend Helen, as well as her special son, Earl Cole, and many foster children who shared her home and her love for many years. She was preceded in death by her son, Craig; her parents; brothers, George and Ellis; and sister, Inas. Grateful appreciation is expressed for Intermountain Health Care Hospice for their kind and compassionate care. Special thanks are also expressed to her grandsons, Brandon and Boyce Snow; her son-in-law, Gordon Snow; and her very special brother-in-law, Jerry Wilkins, for their many hours of assistance in times of need.
