Bertha went by several names, Bertha, Bertie, and Bert, Mother, Grandma, and homemaker. She did all kinds of needle work and made sure all the kids had decent clothes to wear. Raising five kids kept her plenty busy! She took meals to the field for Stacy and those working with him. Supper was always ready when they all got back to the house. Bertha has always been Stacy’s right hand and could do anything in the fields or with the animals. Once their kids had grown, Stacy and Bertha would custom harvest in Kansas. Bertha would drive the truck and feed the crew three squares a day. Bertha loved square dancing with Stacy as well as sewing, gardening, knitting, and canning. They were long time 4-H leaders and passionate about working with the 4-H kids and their projects. Bertha was a sweet, loving, kind, and caring Christian person who had no enemies, and was a member of the Christian Church. Bertha was preceded in death by her daughter, Barbara; daughter-in-law, Judy; son-in-law, Gary Chandler; grandson, Troy Quigley. She is survived by her husband Stacy Sitton, their children, Linda (Dennis) Quigley of Bassett, Nebraska, Steve (Marcia) Sitton of Goodland, Kansas, Dean (Lucy) Sitton of Lebanon, Missouri, and Diane Chandler of Limon, Colorado.
