On January 10, 2019 at Post Inn Village, Oakville, Bertha O’Brecht quietly slipped into a
peaceful and final sleep at the age of 100.
Berte is predeceased by her parents - Ellen Enright and Patrick Hynes; two hus-bands - Victor
Edward Conway and Victor O’Brecht; and seven brothers and sisters - Ralph, Edgar, Mary Cliff, Madeleine Eatherley, Helen Rowe, Connie Bent and Ruth Ward.
Berte is survived by her two daughters, Carolynn (Joe) MacKenzie and Dalyce (Warren) Seaton, five grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Berte was involved in her church and her community in Toronto and in Naples, Florida. She also like to keep active, long before it was trendy to be fit, and enjoyed alley bowling, lawn bowling, curling and swimming.
In August 2018, Berte celebrated her 100th birthday. For weeks before her birthday, she was feted by many visitors and several parties. She hit the trifecta, when she received birthday
greetings from Pope Francis, Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
A very special thank you goes out to all the staff at Post Inn Village who cared for Berte over the past four years, as well as the Palliative Team who took care of Berte in her final days.
Berte will always live on in our hearts. Family and friends are invited to visit at the McKERSIE-KOCHER FUNERAL HOME 114 Main St. E. Milton 905-878-4452 from 12pm to 1pm followed by a Celebration of Life at 1pm in the Funeral Home Chapel. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations in memory of Berte to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
