Pope, Bertha L. (9 Oct. 1874 - 9 Mar. 1930)

Bertha L. Pope, a descendant of Sir William Penn, was born on Oct. 9th, 1874, in the town of Lind, Waupaca County, Wisconsin and passed away March 9th, 1930 at the age of 55 years and 5 months. She was one of a family of 13 children, of the union of Nathaniel Pope and Eliza Jane Loomis. On June 28th, 1899, she was united in marriage to Bert Pope of Waupaca County, Wisconsin. For the past sixteen years, she has resided at her home in the town of Hull, having moved there with her family from Waupaca. During the last three years, she has been an invalid, always cheerful and patient. She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, Bert Pope, and four children: Alyce (Mrs. Alvin Dallman) Wayne, Ella, and Alida Pope, and one grandchild, Wanda Dallman. The following brothers and sisters also survive her: Mrs. Leroy Jones, Mr. R. S. Pope, Mrs. Henry L. West, Mr. Guy Pope, and Mr. A. P. Pope, all residing at Waupaca, also Mr. Lyle Pope, of Seattle, Washington.

The funeral was held at the Methodist church at 2:00 o’clock Tuesday afternoon with Rev. Fahlgren officiating.

Her life was gentle, but like the still waters, it was deep. The past three years, however, she was an invalid and the constant care of willing hands and the untiring skill and watchful care of physicians were of no avail and today many mourn her death.

Out of town people here for the funeral were, Mr. and Mrs. Henry L. West, Mr. and Mrs. Pope West, Mr. R. L. Pope, Mr. Paul Pope, Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Pope, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Pope, Mr. Lynn Pope and Mrs. Theodore Nelson, all of Waupaca, Mr. and Mrs. Luther West, Mr. Elwyn West of the Whiting Airport of Appleton, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Haire of Weyauwega, Mrs. Frank Button, Mr. Brown Morey of Marshfield, Mr. Alvin Dallman of Plymouth and Miss Ella Pope of Burlington, Wis.
