She was born January 1, 1912, in Astoria, IL, a daughter of Harry and Martha Burchett Moore.

On March 28, 1930, she married Edgar Gregory at the home of her grandmother in Kahoka, MO. He preceded her in death in December of 1962.

Bertha was a cook for many years in restaurants in Kahoka, MO and was better known as the "pie lady". She had baked seven pies the day before being admitted to the hospital in West Burlington, IA this past year and had remarked to the nurses there "if you bring me up the ingredients, I'll bake you a pie - now". She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Kahoka, MO. Crocheting and sewing were her hobbies, but she loved cooking and baking. More than anything she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Pallbearers were Ronnie Poole, Donnie Poole, Steve Peak, Greg Peak, Melvin Gregory, and Dick Gregory. Burial was in the Kahoka Cemetery. Memorials have been suggested to the Kahoka City Cemetery or the Clark County Nursing Home Activity Fund. Wilson Funeral Home, Kahoka, MO, was in charge of arrangements.
