Bertha’s Christian walk began at an early age at St. Stephens AME Zion Church in Farmville, NC, and continued on at Bethel AME Church, Stamford, CT, Union Baptist Church, Stamford, CT and Mount Zion Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC. Bertha was a people's person and never met a stranger. Her daily talk with young people always included them getting a good education and striving for the best in life.

She was employed at the City of Stamford for many years, working in the Finance department, where she retired and later moved to Greensboro, NC. She loved and believed in serving the LORD.
