Bertha Anne Friedman peacefully crossed-over the morning of 26 January 2010. Her zest for living and helpful spirit brightened the lives of all those around her. One of Mother Nature's loveliest creations, she leaves behind a saddened but enriched husband Joe, children Michael and Eileen, and grandchildren Heather, David and Michelle. Honey, we all miss you so much! Bert was born Monday 7 May 1928 in Oakland, California. She was a 1946 graduate of Oakland High School and a 1972 graduate of California State University Sacramento, in Communications. The family will hold a memorial service at sea Friday 7 May 2010. Special thanks to the many care-givers, the staff at Asian Community Center, Eskaton Greenhaven and Vitas Hospice for their wonderful care of Bertha. Arrangements entrusted to Harry A. Nauman & Son Land Park Chapel, (916) 452-6157.
