She was the daughter of Henry and Anna (Wise) Walker. Bertha grew up on the family ranch near Alzada, Montana, in the Albion area. In 1939 she was married to Franklin J. Clem. To this union, two children were born: Marlene and Gary. Following their marriage they ranched in the Tater Hills area, near Albion and Alzada. Franklin died in 1967. Bertha was united in marriage to William F. Reid in 1969. Following their marriage they continued to ranch on Bertha’s land in the Tater Hills. William died in 1995. Bertha has lived in Belle Fourche since 1998. Bertha will be remembered for all her hard work on the ranch, and her love of the ranch life. She loved taking long country drives looking at the land and her livestock. She was faithful to feed all the men on the ranch; but also in putting much of her own labor into the ranch herself. She often recalled her many trips carrying buckets of water and feed up the hill to the livestock. Bertha was a private person and a very sharp lady. She enjoyed playing card games, and having “get-togethers” at her home. She will be fondly remembered for being called “Nanny” by her family. Bertha loved her family and close friends more than anything and she will be greatly missed by all of them.
