Bertha Karras

Our beloved Mother, Bertha Karras (Geisler), passed away in the early morning hours of December 23, 2009, after a lengthy stay at Saanich Penninsula Hospital in Victoria. She was born to Gus and Martha Geisler on February 28, 1923 in Poland and moved with her family to Saskatchewan in 1928. She married Bill in 1947 and they lived in or near Vernon, BC for over 60 years.

Bertha is survived by her daughters Diane Taylor (husband Wayne, son David) of Victoria BC and Elaine Harris (husband Ronn, daughter Lauren) of Mission BC. She was predeceased in 2007 by her devoted husband of 60 years, Bill Karras and in 1977 by daughter Laureen Karras.

Bertha will be sadly missed by all those she touched throughout her long wonderful stay on this earth — she will live in our hearts forever.
