It was a great pleasure to have known Bertie. I thought she was both very bright and extremely friendly, so it was always a pleasure to meet and speak with her. You have my condolences.
It is truly an honor to have known Bertie and worked alongside her in the lab. Memories of her bright mind and bright personality will always bring a smile to my face. She will be missed dearly.
Bertie had a quiet but profound influence on my life as a woman who received a PhD in the sciences before that was common, and in sharing with me her written story of one woman's struggle for gender equity. She was one of a few clear female role models from early in my life. John, Bertie, and their family hold a special place in my heart, Cousin Sharon
I love that Aunt Louise is such a prominent figure in my childhood memories. I am no relation, but I am extremely lucky to have known her and called her "aunt".
It is a great loss of such a gentle, kind and nice lady!
