Obituary of Della Bertrand

Della M. Bertrand, 89, of Blackman Corners Road in Mooers Forks, joined our Lord on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the UVM Health Network, CVPH, Plattsburgh surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Gaspe, Quebec on October 18, 1928, the daughter of Frederick and Laura (Reil) Kirouac.

Della's greatest joy in life was her family. She was happiest with a baby on her lap, rocking in a rocking chair. Her love for her family was unconditional and none of us ever doubted it. Della drove bus for 20 years for Northeastern Clinton Central School. She was affectionately known as Mrs. B. She loved all the kids and they loved and respected her. Her hobbies included crocheting and most recently painting and decorating bird houses.

Survivors include her children, Diane and (Ronald) Napper, John and (Julie) Bertrand, Debra and (David) Babbie, Stephen and (Crystal) Bertrand, and Sharron (Ronald) Dupee; 15 grandchildren; and 16 ½ great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Phylis (Bert) Holland and brother Andrew Kirouac; as well as her nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Della was predeceased by her husband, John R. Bertrand; son, David Bertrand; and her brother, Omer Kirouac.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on May 4, 2018 at 10:30 at St. Ann's Church in Mooers Forks, concelebrated by the Rev. Fred Kirouc and Rev. Adrian G. Gallagher. Burial will be in the Parish Cemetery.

Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 793 Gilbert Road, Mooers, 236-4747.
