Bertha Hermansen


Bertha Hermansen

January 2, 1936  ~  June 1, 2012

Bertha (Berti) Olievia Peterson Hermansen was born in Indianola, Utah to Lucile Seeley Peterson and Wallace Franklin Peterson. She is the 2nd oldest of 7 children. She spent her childhood romping in the fields and hills of peaceful Indianola, Utah.

Bertha married Dale K Hermansen in the Manti temple, moved to SLC, and had 5 children: Roger Dale, Wallace Joseph, Nanette Florence (Lynch), Markus K and Mitzi Lucile (Barrow). She was blessed with 17 grandchildren and 7great-grandchildren.

Bertha was known for her kindness, patience, generosity and mercy. She was exceptionally strong and remarkably determined. She had a natural talent for painting portraits, writing poetry, sewing clothes, and understanding human behavior. Her testimony held tremendous power. Most of all, however, she was a loyal, wise and genuine friend.
