Bertha W. Brubaker

February 6, 1932 — August 1, 2021

Bertha W. Brubaker, 89, of Manheim, died peacefully on Sunday, August 1, 2021 at Pleasant View Communities. Born in Lititz, February 6, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Michael N. and Jennie Steffy Wenger. Bertha was the loving wife of Benjamin B.

For over 20 years she and her husband operated “Echoes from the Past”, a business in Manheim featuring antiques and unique historical building materials. She was also involved in retail sales for Bomberger’s Store and Provident Book Stores. Bertha was a member of Millport Mennonite Church and in her early years taught Sunday school and was a youth advisor. Her interests included: flower and vegetable gardening, sewing, singing with her sisters, and playing the piano, and accordion. She had a deep passion for her extended family, and provided hospitality to friends. She and her husband Ben were generous to everyone they came in contact with; giving of themselves wherever they were needed. Bertha had a free spirit that could light up a room; She loved people with a sincere heart that helped them be positive in their daily walk-through life.
