Bertie then filled her days working as a care companion for seniors (Valentine Peters and the Anderson sisters). She was very active in many organizations. Bertie volunteered at the Taber Extended Care, Beta Sigma Phi, Royal Canadian Legion, TOPS-KOPS and the Red Hatters. Bertie loved and was extremely proud of her grandkids more than anything. She especially enjoyed attending all of their activities over the years.
