BERTHA McKINLEY
Bertha McKinley of Evansville passed away peacefully with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with cancer, on Saturday, May 28, 2022 in her 71st year. Beloved wife to Cliff for over 52 years. Special mom to Janet (Jim) Vardon and Ron (Marcia Dusome) McKinley. Special grandma to Katlyn McKinley, Alyx McKinley, Nick Vardon (Cas Fex) and Logan Cook.

Predeceased by her father Angus Cada; brothers-in-law Sam McKinley and John McLeod and sisters-in-law Betty McKinley and Mary (Bruce) MacDonald. Bertha McKinley will be fondly remembered by all who knew her as a family-first woman who enjoyed gardening and the outdoors. Whether it was fall hunting or dropping a line fishing and summer boating, she simply enjoyed being out in the fresh air. Travelling to different parts of Canada and exploring many places throughout the United States were fun adventures for her. But at the end of the day being home with her family and community is where she loved being the most. Visitation was held on Monday, May 30, 2022 from 7 to 9 pm at the Simpson Funeral Home, Gore Bay, where the funeral service was held on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at 11 am.
