Bertha O. Brumbaugh (nee Bogard) passed away peacefully at Pebble Creek Healthcare Center on Saturday, November 27, 2021 at the age of 92. She was born in Akron to Walter and Mary Olive Bogard.
Bertha attended Kenmore High School. In 1947, she married Dennis V. Brumbaugh, who became her loving partner in life for 56 years. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, homemaker, and caretaker. Bertha (Bert, Bertie) will be remembered for her good-natured sense of humor, excellent cooking, and devotion to her family. She absolutely loved watching sports--especially her Cleveland Indians.

Also left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren Angela, Quinn, Lauren, Lindsay and Kyle; her sisters Jean McLaughlin, Ruth Stump and Judy Allen; and numerous nieces and nephews.
