Bertha Mae Tunwell was born and raised in Manistee, Michigan. She married David Edson Bussear from Freesoil, Michigan in 1936. They would have five children; William, Mary, Nancy, David, and Ellen. The family would live in Freesoil, Michigan; Mercedes, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Midland, Michigan and Wheeler, Michigan.
She was a member of the Dunkard-Brethren Church. She was a Sunday school teacher for many years! She loved teaching "the little ones" about Jesus!
She dearly loved, and was very proud of, each and every one of her children.
She and David Edson owned a strawberry farm north of Wheeler, Michigan. She was always outside helping Dad on the farm. She loved our father and we learned how to love by her example.
When he died in 1991, she was determined to stay in their home! She would often say, "I feel closer to your father when I'm here and I'll be happy when I finally go see our Heavenly Father to be with your Dad! " She died on July 27, 2004 in their home.

My heart is still heavy and the tears still flow! It will be that way until I come to lie by your side! No son could have ever had a mother who was more loved and more cherished than you!Sleep Peacefully Until Jesus Calls Us Home!
