Bertha Louise McNiel

Obituary Condolences

Bertha Louise McNIEL Bertha Louise McNiel passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday April 16th. Bertha was born to William and Lillie Reinhardt on Sept. 1, 1917 in Boulder, MT. She was raised in Spokane where she met her husband Paul in highschool. They moved to Seattle in 1943 where she belonged to the Fire Belles of the Burien Fire Department for many years. She enjoyed doing Hawaiian dancing and going to the senior dances at the Seattle Center. She was a stay-at-home mother with a green thumb who loved to cook and sew for her family. No one could've asked for a better mother/grandmother. She is preceded in death by her husband of 65 ½ years, Paul McNiel. She is survived by her daughters: Sandra McLean (Burien) and Karen Cox (Battle Ground); her grandchildren: Patrice Del Villar and David McLean; and her great-grandchildren: Robert, Owen, and Abby. Per her request, there will be no service held. In lieu of flowers, please donate to either the Burien Fire Department or the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (www.pwsausa.org)
