McKINLEY - Bertha, of Evansville, passed away peacefully with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with cancer, on Saturday May 28, 2022 in her 71st year. Beloved wife to Cliff for over 52 years. Special mom to Janet (Jim) Vardon and Ron (Marcia Dusome) McKinley. Special Grandma to Katlyn McKinley, Alyx McKinley, Nick Vardon (Cas Fex) and Logan Cook. Bertha will be sadly missed by her mother Georgina Cada, siblings, Albert Cada, Verna (Bill) Hardwick, Marie McLeod, Frank Cada, Nancy Cada, Randolph Cada, Ann (Mark) Cada, Grace (Morley) McLean, Marilyn Cada (Jim King-Seguin), Joan Cada and Elaine Cada (Mike Kearney) as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by her father Angus Cada, brothers in law Sam McKinley, John McLeod and sisters in law Betty McKinley and Mary (Bruce) MacDonald. Bertha McKinley will be fondly remembered by all who knew her as a family first woman who enjoyed gardening and the outdoors. Whether it was fall hunting or dropping a line fishing and summer boating, she simply enjoyed being out in the fresh air. Travelling to different parts of Canada and exploring many places throughout the United States were fun adventures for her. But at the end of the day being home with her family and community is where she loved being the most. Visitation will be held on Monday May 30 from 7-9 pm at the Simpson Funeral Home, Gore Bay, where the funeral service will be held on Tuesday at 11 am. Interment Burpee Mills cemetery. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Mindemoya Hospital Auxiliary. MASKS MUST BE WORN AT THE FUNERAL HOME.
