Bertha Andreeff

ANDREEFF, Bertha "Bert" Lydia
( nee Klippert)
February 24, 1931 – October 20, 2012
"Bert" passed away after a mercifully short battle with cancer, to be at peace with her sons Jim and Gardell. She is survived by her loving husband Carl, son Stan (Marlene), daughter Judy (Moe), stepdaughter Debra, daughter-in-law Barb (Jim), seven grandchildren, five great grandchildren, brother, sisters, many nieces, nephews, and her pups Chico and Tootsie. Comforting "Bert" in her final days, with her immediate family, were her niece Brenda, sister Marie and friends Merle "the Pearl" and Denise. After many years as a restaurant owner and realtor, "Bert" sought retirement and enjoyed RVing and spending the winters in warmer southern climates and pursuing her favorite pastime, trying to beat the Casinos and sometimes she did. She will be deeply missed but is now in a special and safe place and will be alive in our hearts forever. The family of Bertha would like to thank the doctors and staff/nurses at Ridge Meadows Hospital and all the compassionate, selfless nurses/staff at McKenney Creek Hospice. At the request of "Bert", there will be no formal service but a Celebration of her life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, if you would like, please feel free to make a donation to the McKenney Creek Hospice, BC Cancer Agency, SPCA or a charity of your choice in "Bert's" memory.
"Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal,
but life leaves a memory no can steal"
