27. Bertha Lydia Zweifel was born on Oct 6 1885 in Pomeroy, Meig, OH, and died Feb 12, 1938 in WA.  Sandy Keyser, her granddaughter, was able to find out the following information about her from her mother, Bertha's daughter, Dorothy.

Bertha's parents didn't completely approve of her marriage to George.
Apparently, her parents had some wealth and it is said she wore a mink collar for her wedding.

She didn't like turmoil; didn't like the kids to fight.

Bertha's son, Bob Kendall, said her daughter Dorothy was the most like her of all the kids.

She felt bad that the depression and poor farming conditions meant the kids couldn't have any "special" things and she would save up some money and give it to them when she could. Dorothy tells of her mother buying her a High School Graduation ring.
