Klemann, Bertha Agnes (Yorba/Pizzo), passed away May 3, 2007 in Anaheim at the age of 93. She was born on February 18, 1914 in her parent's home on Esperanza Road in Anaheim. Bertha is fifth generation Californian and a direct descendant of Jose Antonio Yorba, one of the oldest family names in California. She was the third of nine children born to Ernesto Tomas Yorba and Dolores "Lolita" Ruiz. The Yorba children; Berta, Ernesto, Bertha, David, Orlando, Herbert, Doraldina, Juanita, and Rudolph, grew up in beautiful Santa Ana Canyon close to their cousins and friends. She attended Yorba Elementary and graduated in the class of 1933 from Fullerton Union High School. She lived her whole life in the Orange County. Through years she watched the land she grew up on change from ranches to housing tracts. Still, on a good day, she could sit in Yorba Regional Park, smell eucalyptus and be transported back to another time when the weekends brought the whole family together to share a meal, old stories and play baseball. Bertha Yorba married Antonio Pizzo. They had two children, Lucy Mary (Pizzo) Hernandez and Ernest John Pizzo. They were farmers and lived a wonderfully simple and happy life. Tony passed away in 1955. Bertha was strong and continued on to raise her children. She found love again when she met and married Michael F. Klemann. They loved to travel and take care of thier grandchildren. Michael died in 1979. The rest of Bertha's life was doting on her grandchildren and great grandchildren and singing in the senior citizen choral group. Bertha Agnes S. Yorba Pizzo Klemann is survived by her siblings, Doraldina, Herbert, Juanita, her two children Lucy (Al) Hernandez and Ernest (Cornelia) Pizzo, her 7 grandchildren Jackie, Tony, Robbie, Suzie, Juan, John, Jessica, and 11 great grandchildren.
