Berta Gaydon Obituary
Berta Gaydon Our beautiful Mother, Berta Gaydon, passed away August 16, 2018, at Montclair Royale Memory Care, where she had resided for the past 4 years. Berta was born on December 25, 1930 to Alfredo and Amelia Telles in Las Cruces, NM. She was one of eight siblings. She lived nearly all of her adult life in Pomona, CA. Mom will always be remembered for her generosity and her kindness in always trying to help others in need. She always had room for one more at the dinner table. Her hair was always perfect and her style was impeccable. Berta's first marriage to Edward Sapata happily resulted in daughter Debra. Later, Berta married James Gaydon and daughter Tina soon arrived. Berta worked at Melody Dress Shop in the 1960's, Montvue School as a Teacher's Aid in the 1970's and General Dynamics in the 1980's until retirement in 1994. Preceding her in death are parents Alfredo and Amelia, brother Alfredo Jr., sisters Mae, Christine, Elodia and husbands Edward and James. Berta is survived by her daughters Debra Purcella and Tina Robledo (Mark), grandchildren Brandy Purcella, Amber Roe (William), Krystalyn Boldwyn and James Chamberlain and great-grandchildren Colin, Sophia, Samuel Roe and Robert Purcella. Her surviving siblings are Sammy Telles (Gloria), Juliet Barlow, Patsy Russell (Don) and many loving nieces and nephews. Services will be held Friday, September 14, 2018, at 11:30 am at Todd Memorial Chapel, 570 N. Garey Ave., Pomona, CA 91767.
