Bertha was born to Rudolf and Martha Reimer in her family home in the Ebenezer District. At an early age, Bertha was given to the care of her foster parents – Adam and Johanna Splett. Bertha attended school to grade 6 and then she moved with her foster family to the farm north of Springside in the Homestead District. Bertha was close to her foster dad and enjoyed helping him with the farm work and spending time with him. She was especially proud that she could hitch up the horse by herself and get a large barrel of water that would last a few days for the family. Bertha began working as a babysitter for many of the neighbors in the area. In her early years, Bertha discovered the Pentecostal faith and their lively music. She remembers attending a camp where there was a competition to memorize the 23rd Psalm to win a prize. And she was the one who did it! Bertha was baptized at York Lake and attended the Springside Baptist church as well as Heritage Baptist when she lived in Yorkton. Bertha met Albert at the Yorkton fair with friends. At the end of the evening Albert offered to drive her home and she accepted. Long story short – They were married July 18, 1949 and had 67 years together until Albert’s passing in 2016. They were blessed with five children. The farm kept them busy, but they did enjoy going camping and fishing in the summers when their work was done. They started farming in Ebenezer until Albert purchased his father in law’s farm in Springside. In 1969 the family moved to Yorkton. At this time Bertha worked in the housekeeping department of the Corona Motor Hotel for about 10 years, then 3 years with SIGN doing home care responsibilities. One of Bertha’s favorite pets was her little “chico” – a chihuahua. She trained this dog to do many tricks and she missed him when he passed. However, she began to enjoy the grandkids that they were starting to have around them. She looked forward to Christmas when everyone got together and later years when the family would have their yearly “reunion.” She loved her food and that was one of the top topics: what are we going to do and what are we going to eat! Bertha and Albert sold their home on Alexandra Ave and moved into Independent Manor in 2000 until Albert’s passing and Bertha’s health determined her move to the nursing home. Bertha was most thankful to her Lord and Savior for healing her of her cancer when she was 50 years old. Because of this, Bertha became a prayer warrior for her family. The kids will always remember mom calling them up to let hem know “Billy Graham is on tv, Channel ? and you need to watch him” we can just imagine the conversations she might be having with Jesus now. Bertha was predeceased by her parents Martha and Rudolph Reimer, her foster parents Adam and Johanna Splett, a brother who died in infancy, her beloved husband Albert and beloved daughter Loreen Kostichuk. She leaves to mourn and celebrate her life: Joann (Lorie Haluke), Regina Beach and their daughter (Lori Lynn (Kevin Ell) of Regina, James Kostichuk and daughter Lisa (Sheldon Stefanowich) of Yorkton, Annette (Don Field) of Regina, Ken (Erica) of Edmonton and thier sons Justin (Brandon), Cameron (Christine) both of Edmonton, Allan (Teresa) of Yorkton and son Nicholas of Saskatoon and daughter Nicole of Vancouver, BC.
