Bertha Joy Murner Pinkard

Bertha Joy Murner Pinkard, 77, of Littleville and formerly of Bear Creek passed away Feb. 27 at Lakeland Community Hospital in Haleyville.

She was graduate of Phillips High School in Bear Creek and retired from the Littleville Water Dept., having worked there over 20 years.

Bertha was co-owner/secretary of Pinkard Funeral Home in Haleyville and Russellville. She was a longtime member of Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church in Littleville.

Bertha is survived by her son, Tim Pinkard and his wife Vanessa. Bertha was so excited when Tim and Vanessa got married – that she now had a daughter she was so very proud to call her daughter-in love.

She is also survived by a sister, Becky Murner Davis of Haleyville; her co-workers at the funeral home, who she considered her family also; and a host of family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Millard and Cecil Murner; rothers, Edd Murner and her twin brother, Mack Roy Murner; and a sister, Martha Aromatorio.
The family would like to thank Keller EMS, Helen Keller Hospital doctors, Dr. John Young of North Alabama Bone & Joint Clinic, Helen Keller ER nurses, second-floor nurses, Haleyville Police Department, Lakeland Community Hospital doctors, Dr. Ramesh Reddy, Lakeland ER nurses, third-floor nurses, Encompass Hospice Nurses and Visiting Angels – they are truly angels – and everyone that prayed for us during this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, Bertha had such a special place in her heart for animals, as a way to honor her memory, the family requests that donations to be made to Free State Four Paws, 1567 County Road 2, Double Springs, AL 35553 or through Paypal at freestatefourpaws@yahoo.com.
