Bertha had four great-granddaughters Addison, Ella and Avery Wheeler and Harper Woods. She is survived by one special niece, Carolyn Patterson, and her husband Danny.
Bertha's two greatest passions in life were her family and the business she co-founded, Woods Supermarkets. Bertha's work ethic was known and respected throughout the supermarket industry. Her strength in helping others achieve their best made her a dear friend to many. Her love and devotion to her family, husband, children and grandchildren were unwavering. Her quiet devotion to the Lord was always there through her life.
