In Loving Memory Of Bertha Faye Ornsbey November 6, 1903 to Oct. 16, 1995

Loving and kind in all her ways, Upright and just to the end of her days; Sincere and true in her heart and mind, A beautiful memory she left behind. She had a nature you could not help loving. Aheart that was purer than gold; And to those who knew her and loved her, Her memory will never grow cold.
