I posted a few weeks ago in Farkel's thread, " Rutherford Exposed" that I would try to get Berta's obituary notice as published in the newspaper.
Well, it arrived in the mail today, and here it is:
PEALE, Berta L. Memorial service Monday 7:00 p.m. May 21. Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. 1608 Pacific Ave.
That's is all. No mention of any husband, childern or other surviving relatives. No mention of any occupation, or life achievement, just that a memorial service will be held at a Kingdom Hall!
