Bertha Lydia (Trebelhorn) Neubarth was born to Philip and Anna (Rohrig) Trebelhorn on a lovely summer day, August 6, 1924, in Noonan, North Dakota. Bertha was baptized into the Lutheran faith in Noonan. The Trebelhorn family moved to Winthrop in 1927, and became members of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church. Bertha was confirmed in her faith June 12, 1938, at Zion. She graduated from Winthrop High School.
On a snowy February evening, Bertha was united in marriage to Gerald Neubarth, the 23rd day, 1952, at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Winthrop. After marriage, the couple resided in Winthrop. Their marriage was blessed with three children. Bertha and Gerald shared 53 years of marriage before Gerald passed away on March 22, 2005.
Bertha worked at Winthrop School as a cook aide for about 11 years, she worked many enjoyable years at Hands, Inc. in Winthrop, until about the age of 78. She was a member of the Winthrop Fireman’s Auxiliary.
She always put the needs of her family before her own-that is what a daughter, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother does! Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were her greatest treasures. She loved to be with them for vacations, traveling to Florida, Mexico, Arizona and many Minnesota destinations. Spending time with family at lake homes, for holidays and just being together to talk and laugh were important to her. Bertha’s passions were many, her spirituality was deep.
The Lord chose to take Bertha home on December 8, 2017, at the age of 93 years, 4 months, and 2 days.
She loved life with humor, grace, and compassion. Left to cherish her memory is:
