News Item: The passing of Sister Bertolino (courtesy of Jed Greenfield)
Displaying 1 - 1 of 1 -- Add News
It is with sadness that I announce the passing of sister Bertolino "sister
B". Most everyone who has served in the mission will remember sister
Bertolino and her cinnamon rolls at nearly every transfer meeting.
Sister Bertolino had been fighting an aggressive battle with cancer over the
last couple of years. She had a fighting spirit that is rarely seen in
others, but this Saturday morning she passed away. As I spoke with her just
a couple of days prior, she spoke about several missionaries and what they
were up to, she had the missionaries in mind right up until the end.
I will send funeral information which is tentitively as Wednesday, as soon
as it is firm.
If you could remember her daughters in your prayers, Becca and Jessica.
Many may not be aware that Sister Bertolino's husband, Eddie, passed away
just a couple of months ago, and this has bee difficult for her daughters
to loose both parents.
If anyone is interested in sending memories of sister Bertolino, they can
send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will compile them and
pass them onto Becca and Jessica.
