In Loving Memory

Bertts, Marlene Fay (nee Mueller)

April 1, 1934 - January 22, 2024

On January 22nd, 2024, Marlene Fay Bertts passed peacefully from this life to eternal life. Born Marlene Fay Mueller on April 1, 1934 to Edward and Hazel Mueller, she married Thomas Leslie Bertts in 1956 and enjoyed a long and happy marriage. Marlene was a loving wife, and a caring mother and grandmother who cherished her family above all.

She is survived by her husband; her daughters Brenda Bertts Long (Eric Long), Cindy Bertts (Charles Sedano), Michelle Groom (Brock Groom), and her grandchildren Daniel Thomas Long and Anastasia (Anya) Fay Long.

Marlene was an active and beloved presence throughout her family’s lives. She never hesitated to volunteer, for everything from Sunday school class and room mother duties to babysitting for her grandchildren. The Bertts home was a place where family and friends were always welcome for holidays, celebrations and casual gatherings, and Marlene’s spirit will live on in the traditions and recipes she has passed on to her daughters and grandchildren.

Marlene will be missed by her family and the many friends who know and love her. She will be welcomed by her parents, her sister, and many other family members and friends who have passed on before her. Her beautiful smile and loving, caring nature will never be forgotten.

  1. I am truly sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is the worst anyone can go through. Im sure she was a great mom, wife and person.

  2. I can only relate your feelings to mine regarding the loss of the greatest women in your life. I am quite sure, without any doubt, she was a wonderful wife, and fabulous mother to you and your entire family. She was your guiding light who taught you to be the great women you are today. In life too often we don’t realize what we have until it is gone. We sometimes take our parents for granted, always thinking that they will be there forever. I know I did! However, we all know that the essence of life is a soul which existed long before there was a human body. This soul lives on forever, however the body that guards the soul is merely on borrowed time. In the end the body fails, however the soul always lives on and merely returns to its all seeing, all knowing and all powerful source, which we both know is God. God’s home is a place of no fear, no doubt, no worries, only peace. Your mother along with my parents, will be happy there. As long as you continue to visualize her in your mind she will remain alive within you forever. Your mother will wait with God patiently, for all the ones she loved to once again be united in Heaven as the family she once enjoyed on earth.

    With the great blessing you have enjoyed in your life and with your mother, now comes the burden you must endure with her loss and with yours. Blessings and burdens are always a package deal. Unfortunately, you cannot have one without the other. I have known you for years, and I believe even with the burden of your loss, you will receive a blessing from God which will help you and your family get through this deep tragedy. Please extend my sympathy to your father and all of your family members.

    I leave you with this profound thought…….God has an answer to every problem and to every tragedy, and as long as we persevere, a way out of darkness and into the light, will most definitely appear for you and your family.

    You and Chuck have been and will always be my friends. I will be here for you, Chuck and your family as long as I live, that is my promise to you and Chuck.
