Taney County
Missouri, USA
Death: Sep. 18, 1979
Okanogan County
Washington, USA

Bertha was born and raised in Springfield Missouri, the youngest of six children. Her grandmother, Dinah Pierce was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. With her rich heritage, Bertha was full of creative explanations of things: "If the sun's shining when it's raining, it will rain the same time the next day." She trusted natural remedies like Black Salve and onion poultices and loved working outside in her garden. She enjoyed crocheting and making wild-crazy quilts with fabric scraps from her grandkids old clothes...her hands were seldom idle. Bertha kept her little house as neat as a pin and her cellar well-stocked with homemade preserves, jams, jellies and pickles. While she considered it unladylike to wear pants or shorts, her favorite TV show was professional wrestling! Bertha was a sweet, funny little woman with a big heart.
