Bertha was my maternal grandmother, the daughter of George and Freida. I never knew her because she passed before I was born, but many many times I have wished I had known her. She was a teacher and a librarian, wife of Leo and mother to Nancy, Robert, and Margaret. In high school when my mom would have Shakespeare to read, Grandma would read it to her while Mom did chores, because if her mother read it, Mom could understand. She was a great cook, by all accounts, and she was an enormously wise woman who taught my mom a lot, and my mom has in turn taught it all to me. I love you Grandma
