in Rugby, North Dakota.

She died peacefully at the

age of 84 on Sunday, June

14th at the Lutheran

Home of the Good

Shepherd in New Rock-

ford, ND, with her chil-

dren by her side.

Bertha was raised in the

home of her parents in

Rugby and graduated

from high school there,

the class of 1954. Bertha

married the love of her

life, Dwight L. Liming, on

January 24, 1955 at the

Little Flower Catholic

Church in Rugby.

Dwight’s college and work

took them to Fargo and

New Rockford, North

Dakota, where she worked

as a bookkeeper for J. C.

Penney in both cities. In

1960, they moved to

Towner, North Dakota

Agency, Don Rupp, and

H&R Block. In addition,

she was the bookkeeper of

The Hamilton Motel and

Steakhouse and was ap-

pointed by the Mayor and

served as Rugby’s City


She was a fantastic

listener that always took

the time to help others, or

just let them vent.

Bertha enjoyed garden-

ing and canning veget-

ables and was a fantastic

cook and baker. She

loved to curl up and read

a good book, solve cross-

word puzzles, do word

search, or Sudoku. She

enjoyed shooting her sin-

gle shot .22 with Dad,

bowling, dancing and of

course, playing bingo.

She always looked for-

ward to her annual sister’s

get together, where there

were plenty of late nights,

story-telling and gam-

bling. She was a member

of the Little Flower

Catholic Church and a

Christian Mother.
