Bertha enjoyed life as a professional cook, seamstress, wife, mother, sister and grandmother with a zest for life and a great sense of humor. She lived in Wichita, Kansas for 25 years while residing in Miami, Oklahoma since 1978. On February 26, 1937 Mr. Drexel Honeycutt took Miss Bertha Crow as his bride in Miami, Oklahoma.
