Bert loved to bowl, she bowled most of her adult life and attended many tournaments with her bowling friends. She enjoyed golfing with Ron and her friends at Lansing Country Club; She achieved two “hole in one” shots — she was so proud of this. Recently she was happiest spending time with Marsha and friends at Benny’s – she was simply “Momma Bert” to so many!
