Bertha retired from Yavapai Community Hospital in 1982 as the Director of Housekeeping and Grounds, a position she held from 1972 to 1982.
A Celebration of Bertha's Life will take place 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 12, at the Greenville Southern Baptist Church.
She was born Oct. 16, 1917, to a family of three boys and four girls. As a young girl, she tap-danced with her brother George for five years and it was one of Bertha's fondest childhood memories.
She was married to James Wright on Nov. 9, 1935, and the union was blessed with four children: James, Carol Jean, Dennie and Debbie. She has nine grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson.
Some of her favorite things to do included reading books, listening to Western music and doing jigsaw puzzles. Bertha felt her greatest accomplishment in her life was raising her four children followed by a successful career later in life to become the Director of Housekeeping and Grounds for Yavapai Community Hospital.
Thank you so much to the kind and loving staff at Good Samaritan Society for all the love and support they gave to Bertha and her family.
