Bertha, or “Dump” as she was affectionately known to some, was a loving wife, mother, Grannie and friend. She loved her family fiercely but even more, she loved the Lord. She was the epitome of a faithful Christian woman. Furthering the Kingdom by sharing God’s love in word and deed she led by example, setting the bar high. She was a member of Broken Bow Assembly of God where she taught Sunday School for many years. As a child in the Great Depression, her fondest memories were pulling the beds outside in the hot summer to sleep under the stars. Her young adult years consisted of traveling the world, supporting her husband as a faithful Air Force wife and devoted mother to four small children. Life wasn’t always easy but she worked hard to make sure her family was taken care of and had what they needed. Life eventually brought her back to Oklahoma as the kids grew into adults. Now single, she met and married her second husband, Donald. Together, they owned and operated chicken houses for Pilgrim’s, taught Sunday School and settled into the joys of being grandparents. Sadly, after 22 short years of marriage, Donald unexpectedly passed away. Dump filled her time working as a mail carrier, being promoted to clerk of the Broken Bow Post Office until her retirement in 1997. Retired but still committed to her community, she joined the Idabel Memorial Hospital Ladies Auxiliary. As a “Pink Lady”, she logged many a service hour dolling out bright and ready smiles to patients and visitors before stepping down as her health began to decline. Through all of this, she caught the eye of Aubrey Dickerson- they've been married 15 years.
Our hearts are broken but past the hurt and through the tears, we’re happy for her. Her body and mind are finally restored and in the Father’s arms there’s no doubt she heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Welcome home.”
