Bertha loved her gardening with the canning and preserving. Enjoyed going saskatoon berry picking with her family out in the country. She enjoyed looking after her yard with her many flowers. Bertha had many hobbies - sewing, knitting, crocheting and made many projects with each - quilts, mittens & slippers, baby outfits and many doilies. She did enjoy floor curling later on in life.

Dear Ethel,
I just noticed your Moms obituary in the paper, so sorry for your loss. She lived to a very good age. I also didn't know Veronica had passed away too. I think of you often old school friend. with your bright blue eyes I always envied. I would like to hear from you.
