She settled in Ladsymith, marrying Henry (Smokey) Berto in 1948. She leaves behind her daughter-in-law Pamela, son-in-law David, grandchildren Joanna, Nick and Paul. Also her sisters Ilene Hollands and Violet McManus plus many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her very dear friend Glad Malli.

God knew that she was suffering

That the hills were hard to climb.

So he closed her weary eyes and

whispered “Peace Be Thine.”

Away in the beautiful hills of God

By the valley of rest so fair.

Someday, we know not when

we will meet our loved ones there.

A celebration of her life will be held at The Berto Home, on Sunday, November 9th, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.
