Condolences to the family of Vivian Bertsch



August 26, 1939 - November 26, 2022

Vivian Bertsch, a long-time resident of Rosebud/Drumheller area went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 26th at the age of 83.
Vivian was born August 26th, 1939 at Winnipeg, Manitoba to Lawrence and Jessie Henschel. Vivian was raised in River Hills, Manitoba with her siblings Joyce, Wayne and Myron. Vivian came to Edmonton to attend CTI where she met the love of her life, Ronald Bertsch. They were married on June 25th, 1960 and they raised their family while farming at Rosebud. Ron and Viv retired to Drumheller in 2004.
Vivian is predeceased by her husband of almost 61 years, Ronald.
Vivian leaves to mourn, her children Dawn (Robert) Bancroft, Cameron (Deanne) Bertsch, Brent (Jennifer) Bertsch and Jason (Ashley) Bertsch; her grandchildren Renee (Brad) Storch, Brianne, Derek (Karen) Bancroft, Emily, Erin, Kiara, Tavia Bertsch and Trent Fredrickson and her great-grandchildren Eden and Autumn.
Vivian also leaves to mourn her sister, Joyce, her nieces and nephews from Manitoba, her in-laws, Llewelyn and Joyce Bertsch.
Vivian ran the Rosebud Post office with Ron for many years. She was an active part of the Zion Baptist Church and Drumheller Alliance Church. After raising the kids, Vivian worked at the Rosebud Dinner Theatre and then was an educational assistant for many years at the Hillview Hutterite colony. Vivian was the heart of the Bertsch home, always preparing home cooked meals, baking bread and sour cream raisin pie. She always had the coffee on and a lunch ready.
The family would like to thank Dr. Blackburn and the staff at the Drumheller Health Centre, for their care of mom these past few years.
A celebration of life will be held for both Vivian and Ronald Bertsch at the Rosebud Community Hall on Saturday, January 7th at 2pm.
