In memory of

Bertha Ann Juhas

December 13, 1943 -  April 17, 2021

Bertha ‘Bert’ Ann Juhas (née Dennis)
December 13, 1943 to April 17, 2021

Bert passed away peacefully with her dear husband Paul at her side.
Bert was loving and giving to all who had the good fortune of knowing her. She enjoyed baking and cooking to feed her family and friends. She delighted in travelling, camping all across Canada in summers, and vacationing in Europe in winters after retirement.
If asked, Bert would say she was most proud of her ability to “make do” (creativity to the rest of the world)… most recently making a fabulous dressing gown and night gown from a sheet and a drapery panel.
And she had a wicked sense of humour… for instance, she filled her home office with birthday balloons one night for Paul, who always got up early to sign in to the computer… in the dark!
Bert is survived by Paul, her son Jaye Sunsurn; sisters Florence Cunningham, Carolyne Doey, Marlene, Judy Penchuk and brother Michel. She is pre-deceased by brothers Woody, Bradley and John.
Heartfelt thanks go to the Dorothy Ley Hospice caregivers who made her last days as comfortable as possible.
There will not be a memorial service at this time. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Dorothy Ley Hospice.

Bert valued her family relations a great deal. Some 20 plus years ago she decided to find "lost relatives" and using a genealogy site she tracked down our sister Joyce White. A few months after confirming each other's identity four of us sisters all met up in Alvor, Portugal. Bert's kind, loving, heart warming friendship will be sorely missed.
Love you to bits sis. Judy

My mother was a kind and pratical woman. She passed on to me her pragmatic nature, and lessons about life which I will always treasure. Despite herself growing up in a very large family, for a long time it was just me and her living life and facing the world. It wasn't always great but we made do... that is something we always excelled at. Making do with what we had and not wishing for stuff we didn't. We could still have fun and live life pleasantly without the frills and the fanciness. We didn't need much, and for the most part didn't want much. I learned a lot from her growing up, and from the rest of the family. I miss her every day, and will think of her often.
