Our heavenly Father took our beautiful mother and grandmother home in the early
morning on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014. Bertha was born Sept. 16, 1930.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother; son, Alfred Jaquez; grandson, Ryan Ramos; and ex-husband, Asisclo Jaquez, who remained her friend until his passing.
Bertha is survived by her children, Delores (Robin) Ramos, John (Michelle) Jaquez, Veronica (Sabiniano) Lobato and Erich (Charlotte) Kempf; grandchildren, Jerome,
Ilea, Jason, Dillian, Samantha, Melissa, Sarah, Ricky (Punky) Alyisha and Ashley; and 13 great-grandchildren.
A special thank you to Christine and Debbie. Mom always said you were both family and called you her daughters. Bertha was blessed with a family who loved her. She had a great sense of humor and didn't mind speaking her mind.
It brings us great comfort knowing our mother is with our heavenly Father and is no longer suffering any illness.
Cremation has taken place.
A service will be at 10 a.m. today, Feb. 28, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 414 N. Allen Ave. in Farmington.
