It is with great sadness the family of Bertha Vallis annouces her passing on July 6, 2016. Predeceased by husband, Thomas Vallis, on October 15, 2013. Leaving with many happy memories: her six sons - Tom (Perth, Australia), Allan, Dean and wife Christine (Port Dover), David (Calgary), Stephen, Christopher and wife Michelle; grandchildren Julie (David), Adam, Haley, Josie and Jake; great-grandchildren Daniel, Britany and Evan; six sisters Marg, Siddy, Thelma, Mary Elizabeth, Joanne, Cleo and Bernie; two brothers Gerard and Lenny ~ she was the oldest sister and she will be missed by all of them; sister-in-law Jean Vallis, and many nieces and nephews, as well as a large circle of lifelong friends. She was a wonderful, outgoing person, with a big personality. She could talk with anyone, she was never short of something to say or a story to tell. Her sense of humor was always present... she could find the humor in any situation. Anyone whose life she touched was made better by her being in it. We celebrate her life and know that she lives on in all of us.
