Bert was a very dear family friend for many years. She was truly one of the most selfless persons I have ever known. We truly loved she and Omer and both of their daughters. I was so sorry to hear of her passing but know she is in heaven with Omer.

Teri & Amy - We are so sad for the loss of your mother. She was such a strong, caring & forgiving person. She certainly was God's servant here on earth. We had some good times with your folks and cherish the memories. Our only regret was that we were going to take Bert with us to meet Curt & Jeanette in LaMars, Iowa which your Dad had done several times in the past, but last years circumstances derailed us from our plans. Bert will be missed and pray the faith she had will guide you through this difficult time. Wendell and Judy Roscoe

Teri & Amy - We are so saddened by the death of Bert. She was such a strong, caring, forgiving person who was a servant here on earth to our Lord. We have good memories of the times we'd get together with her and your dad. One regret is we were going to take her with us to meet Curt and Jeannette at LaMar, Iowa last year, but circumstances didn't permit it. It was always a fun time. We will miss her. Our sympathy to you and your family.
